Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Antigona bag

Nov 23, 2011

The House of Givenchy is pleased to announce the launch of Riccardo Tisci’s new bag. The Antigona is a timeless Boston bag that was introduced in the Fall-Winter 2010 Ready-to-wear collection. Its sharp details and boxy construction represent Riccardo Tisci’s love of the masculine and feminine contrast.

With a recognizable, structured shape, this new design combines the feminine aspects of a classic Boston bag with masculine features. Several references are made to its military spirit such as a large industrial zipper or a triangle padded leather patch. Exclusively designed metal hooks and loops were developed alongside a leather shoulder strap to allow the Givenchy woman to carry the Antigona in different ways.

Inspired by “Antigone”, a strong female figure in Greek Mythology whose name stands for “unbending”, the Antigona is a modern bag that will remain a classic in Riccardo Tisci’s accessories collections for Givenchy.
