Price Comparison: Givenchy Antigona

This week’s Price Comparison series focuses on the IT bag that has been touted to be a classic—similar to the Prada Saffiano Lux tote and iconic Chanel 2.55 flap bags of the premium designer-purse world: the Givenchy Antigona.

First made in 2010, this versatile tote comes in a variety of sizes and prices, from the envelope clutch and pouch to the printed tote bags and regular bags. It’s been spotted on the arms of supermodels e.g. Chrissy Teigen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Miranda Kerr; celebrities e.g. Ciara, Kourtney Kardashian and fashion bloggers such as Alexandra Pereira of Lovely Pepa.

Here’s what you need to know about this beautiful purse:

  1. Common materials of the Givenchy Antigona mini, small and medium include box calf, smooth calf, patent calf, rubberized canvas, goatskin, crocodile, nubuck, ostrich and more.
  2. Colours vary according to season; common ones are black (available every season), yellow, pale blue, red, nude and more.
  3. Here are the dimensions of the mini, small and medium Antigona bags (the large version is no longer available):
    Mini: 8.5″ W X 8.5″ H X 5″ D
    Small: 11″ W X 9.5″ H X 5.5″ D
    Medium: 13″ W X 11″ H X 7.5″ D
  4. What’s great about this bag is that all of the sizes perfectly suit all occasions or preferences—whether you personally hoard more items than you like in your purse, or if you’re a fan of the mini-bag trend. It’s sizable but not too boxy, yet it has a subtle feminine aesthetic.
  5. The main difference between the mini and small Antigona (apart from the size) is that the shoulder strap for the mini is longer and can be used as a crossbody bag; whereas the small Antigona reaches mid-torso (depending on your height).

  7. This takeaway from Purse Blog beautifully surmises the Givenchy Antigona and why it’s a great investment as a classic purse:“The Antigona has been a favorite for a few years, and the love for this bag hasn’t died down. It’s rare in the post it-bag days to find a bag that hits such a high status and doesn’t get affected by over-saturation or backlash. Because of its rather clean aesthetic, this bag will be a staple for years to come.”
