It’s Giving Chic: The Givenchy Antigona Sports a Relaxed Makeover


The French house reimagines the iconic handbag into a unique aesthetic made for everyday style

Unbending—a word to describe a timeless cult favorite was also a term that served as the inspiration for what would be the archetypal Givenchy bag. Greatly inspired by the Greek mythology “Antigone,” a feminine figure with a fierce personality, the Antigona made its way into fashion circles with radical elements of tough-meets-luxe, a balance of feminine and masculine contrasts, that has now become a coveted investment piece.

After the success of the classic Nightingale in 2005, the luxury brand sought to replicate the glory of having another iconic luxe piece under their helm. Six years later, the Givenchy Antigona, a trapezoid-shaped boxy bowling bag, was launched and immediately found its way into the arms of many high-profile celebrities and fashion elites like business mogul Rihanna and supermodels Irina Shayk and Lily Aldrige. 

As a new approach to minimalist design, the French design house, led by current creative director Matthew M. Williams, the Antigona family of handbags gets a contemporary update to its effortlessly sophisticated design with the Antigona Sport. Made from soft supple calfskin leather, the bag’s signature profile is adorned by discreetly luxurious details with hardware developed by Williams from its woven strap to an oversized zip pull embossed with the Givenchy 4G logo.

The Sport iteration is the Parisian institution’s parlay to relaxed luxury as a minimalist and versatile fashion accessory with a canvas-embroidered strap that gives an athletic feel. The Italian-made piece comes in small and medium designs that can work as a day-to-night purse or a weekend getaway bag in perennial black, ivory, and pumpkin. 

The Givenchy Antigona Sport comes in three formats, the mini, small and medium. Its woven strap gives adds an athleisure feel to the cult favorite.

The impeccable craftsmanship of its body plays on its world-renowned symmetry and elements with generous interiors such as sleek pockets for easy access to your essentials. As a play on texture, the Antigona Sport also carries a chain strap interlaced with leather to add that panache of Givenchy’s edgy aesthetic.

Aside from the Antigona Sport, the French luxury house also released the G-Tote Bag, an everyday fashion staple with a great deal of style mileage. The rectangular body is made out of canvas with leather lining and a leather top handle with the brand’s printed name at the center. It comes in nano and medium sizes in classic black, white, and seasonal colors like pink, lavender, and pistachio. The G-Tote canvas bag can be your partner you can whisk away for a weekend getaway.
