Givenchy celebrates the 10th anniversary of its iconic Antigona handbag by unveiling the Antigona Soft: a supple, more relaxed version the bag, with curvaceous lines that have all the vitality and confidence of an embrace.
Inspired by the heroine of Greek mythology, the classic Antigona (which debuted for Fall-Winter 2010) reinterpreted the House’s signature Boston shape as it quickly became a House signature accessory. Its architectural, rigid construction featured a tension between feminine and masculine allure — a duality that defines the Givenchy aesthetic.
Today, this timeless modern style has grown into a full-fledged collection of accessories for women and men. There’s a clear family resemblance in the Antigona Soft. Like its elder sister, it comes in the same colours, is embellished with bold zippers and a distinctive pentagonal patch.
Building on Givenchy duality, it offers a counterpoint to the original Antigona by blending sleek lines with suppleness. To the structured, graphic statement of a classic, the Antigona Soft replies with serene languor.
Stylish and down-to-earth, the Antigona Soft comes in medium and large formats and various colours including timeless black, white, pearl gray, aubergine and midnight blue as well as a seasonal palette of candy pink, military green and ice blue.
The Antigona Soft retails for Dhs6,300 and the classic Antigona retails for Dhs5,600. For more information visit givenchy.com.
