Named for the mythical Greek heroine, the Antigona Soft captures the Fall-Winter 2020 mood of discreet nonchalance. Crafted in supple calfskin with both classic and seasonal finishes and treatments, it reprises the original Antigona’s signature geometry, bold zips and pentagonal patch, now updated with a more informal, slouchy shape.
Rooted in the Givenchy couture heritage of elegant ease and masculine/feminine duality, the Antigona Soft is defined by generous proportions and a shape that lets it move from day to weekend with all the effortless versatility of a favorite leather jacket. On the runway, it was shown wrapped in large, contrasting silk scarves twisted and knotted around the handles, a visually impactful yet casual-looking way of accentuating individuality and graphic appeal.
Though relaxed in spirit, the Antigona Soft is perfectly on-point in terms of style and practicality. Its sleek calfskin body features an ample central compartment with dual zip closures on medium and large styles, with an inner card pocket, vertical side straps with turn-lock fastenings, twin top handles and a removeable shoulder strap for two modes of wear (hand-held or over-the-shoulder). A small version likewise accommodates all the essentials, with a zipped compartment, a card pocket and an adjustable, removable strap for cross-body wear.
Timeless finishes for the Antigona Soft include classic black and pearl gray. Seasonal statements feature a graphic houndstooth version that echoes ready-to-wear looks, and a version in extra supple calf leather embossed with a crocodile finish. An elevated version in two-tone, hand-pleated leather offers a dressier option.
This new variations will debut in Givenchy boutiques worldwide on September 18th, 2020.
