GIVENCHY PRESENTS THE NEW ANTIGONA

The House of Givency has reinvented its iconic Antigona bag for 2021

This year, the House of Givenchy is embarking on an exciting new chapter for its emblematic Antigona accessories line.  

Named after the passionate and courageous Greek heroine, the original Antigona celebrated its 10th anniversary last year as the House’s signature women’s handbag. Iconic for its architectural construction, regal lines and effortless mix of feminine and masculine traits, it has become the foundation for a burgeoning family of sleek, urban leather accessories for women and men.

For Spring-Summer 2021, Creative Director Matthew M. Williams reinterprets the icon for a new era, blending his love of industrial hardware with Givenchy hallmarks, subtly infusing the Antigona’s elegant geometry with more generous volumes, a modern attitude and a futuristic edge. 

For Spring-Summer 2021, Creative Director Matthew M. Williams reinterprets the icon for a new era, blending his love of industrial hardware with Givenchy hallmarks, subtly infusing the Antigona’s elegant geometry with more generous volumes, a modern attitude and a futuristic edge. 

Crafted from Box-finish calfskin, the new Antigona salutes its lineage with a scaled-up version of its characteristic pentagonal patch and two signatures — a 4G in front, GIVENCHY lettering in back —evoking the House’s dual character. Luxurious and distinctive 4G padlocks, custom-designed by Matthew M. Williams for Givenchy, are inspired by the celebrated “love locks” of Paris and present an open invitation to further customize the bag as the wearer wishes.   

Sophisticated enhancements to the Antigona include re-proportioned handles, which are now elongated and anchored lower on the bag’s body to optimize versatility of wear. A roomy central compartment features either a zip or a magnetic closure, both finished with the 4G padlock, while a version of the mini Antigona and the unisex Vertical bag come with a removable strap for cross-body wear, in leather or the new G-link chain respectively.

Matthew M. Williams also brought his visionary aesthetic to the Antigona family’s youngest sibling, the versatile, unisex Antigona Soft bag, and gave it a companion in the form of a sleek shopper tote. Now reconsidered with strong, squared lines, drop-length handles and a 4G padlock, these multi-purpose hybrids make a sophisticated statement whether in the city or on the road.   

In the most masculine interpretation of the style to date, the designer presents the nonchalant Antigona U crossbody bag, also in Box-finish leather, featuring a deconstructed version of the 4G padlock that gives this accessory a unique, urban attitude. 

The Antigona family of leather handbags are available in timeless neutral colors or seasonal shades of pink or red. Meanwhile, classic Antigona styles and sizes, in Box-finish or crocodile-embossed leather, are adorned with the new G-link chain.  

The latest Antigona accessories will be available in Givenchy boutiques and on
givenchy.com on February 26th, 2020.
