These days, it’s all about going mini…in all the right places. And when it comes to luscious arm candy, the Mini Givenchy Antigona Tote Bag is totally worth every pretty penny you have. Available in different textures and materials used – from the basic grained goatskin in block colors, up to the eye-catching shiny, patent leather pieces – the Mini Antigona promises more than what you initially bargained for.
This Spring 2015, the Mini Antigona has revamped itself in the form of a wonderful suede surface, which makes every outfit stand out. This material gives you an edge wherever you go, with its light-catching properties and velvet-like feel.
For such a small-looking structure, the Mini Antigona is a superstar in the efficiency department – it has rolled top handles and a detachable shoulder strap which gives you so much options when it comes to carrying all your things. It also has one internal zip pocket and two internal patch pockets which help you organize all your essentials easily. It also has fine detailing, such as silver hardware pieces and the house’s metal logo lettering at top line, assuring you of quality and craftsmanship with every piece.
Measuring 8.5″ x 8.5″ x 5.0″ inches (H x W x D), this bag comes in different prices, depending on the color and type of material used.

I noticed that when it comes to popular replica handbags like the Givenchy Antigona replica bag, people are more likely to stumble upon disappointing websites.
Replica sites want to sell, of course, so they’ll lure their customers with low prices and popular designs. But just like this Luxurycheapbagsuk.com review shows, things are not always what they seem…or what we hope them to be!
A friend of mine bought the Givenchy Antigona knockoff from one of these replica sites but the good part was that she was able to return it. Experiences like this can ruin all replica bags for us and that’s why you choose the site carefully:
I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of this site before since I didn’t see a Luxurycheapbagsuk.com review on your blog and that’s why I wanted to share my story.
I purchased a Givenchy Antigona replica from them since I found it to be quite affordable and I liked that there are photos and description for each bag. But the whole experience has left a rather bad taste in my. They offer credit card among the payment methods they list on their site but I found out upon Checkout that Mastercard payments are actually not supported, so I was foolish enough to go with Western Union instead
The bag arrived 9 days after I made the payment (weekend included) and even though I don’t pretend to be an expert, it’s really bad! It doesn’t hold its shape at all because the leather is really thin and the logo pad is way too flat! Also, the hardware felt really cheap and I’m sure the color would fade off after just a few wears.
I contacted them through email, gave my order number and explained that the reason why I want to exchange it is because it doesn’t look like in their photos! But their exchange policy doesn’t support this reason, just defective or damaged replica bags!
The customer service was extremely disappointing because they answered very slowly but in the end I was able to return the bag, even though I had to pay all the shipping fees. I sent you some photos for you and your readers, I think you’ll understand better
I do not want to use them ever again and I already warned my friends too!
But I still want this Givenchy Antigona replica bag, can you please help me find a good one Eva?”
Thank you for sending this Luxurycheapbagsuk.com review, it’s been a while since I’ve seen one of their bags! You made the right decision to return this Givenchy replica bag, it was really ugly!
The logo tab was indeed too flat, the interior leather tab was not even straight, the protective leather tabs on the bottom were not even, the handle tabs look really bad and the overall shape doesn’t do any justice to the real Antigona we all love! Ugh, why do replica Givenchy bags like this even exist?

Honestly, I was never really crazy about the Givenchy Antigona Clutch Bag, and with that I mean the original version.
You want to know how the original Antigona Clutch looks like? Well here it is:
It’s flat, squared and it features the same Givenchy leather logo on the front. It also comes with a zipper, see above. It’s all right, you know.
But here’s the thing, the latest version looks much better. In fact, it’s inspired by the Antigona Tote Bag and you will love it.
It has same shape at the large tote, two sides that are pushed out a bit, the center with leather signature logo on the front. It’s like carrying the Antigona Tote Bag on your hands!
This bag comes with a leather wrist-strap on the zipper pull, it’s the perfect bag for the evenings and when you’re out and about and needs something small to store essentials.
Made from goatskin, it’s measured at 14 x 18 x 11 (H x W x D) cm, priced at $695 USD via Luisa Via Roma.
The Givenchy Antigona is one of those bags that continues to gain popularity at a point in its life cycle when any other bag would be starting to fizzle out as consumers move on to other things, and that’s how you know it’s one of the few truly exceptional pieces out there right now. That also makes it a perfect candidate for close examination in our newest Ultimate Bag Guide; below, check out all the info you need to decide which Antigona is right for you, including prices, size comparisons and side-by-side guides to currently available colors and leathers.

Do you have any idea what kind of leather this is?
Suede is a type of leather with a napped finish. The term comes from the French ‘gants de Suède’, which literally means ‘swedish gloves’.
READ: Givenchy Mini Antigona Bags in Suede
The leather is smooth and velvet-like.
If this handbag was made in velvet, it would be cheaper. But Suede is more durable and in the end, it’s real leather, which is why it’s as pricey as grained leather.
The Givenchy Antigona Suede Tote Bags are special edition for the Spring 2015 Collection. Suede gives you a total different experience than other leathers. It’s extra smooth and also a bit harder to maintain. Generally the best way to take care of Suede is to use dry sponge or suede brush to get dust or dirt of.
As you can see on the images, the colors are sharper and brighter. These Givenchy Antigona Tote are made from bull leather. It’s a cool choice for the new season.
So are you in?
I know, I know–so many of you don’t want to hear anything else about the Kardashians. But I’m not here to gossip about them, I’m here to share a bag I spotted on Kylie Jenner’sInstagram page that I fell in love with, and I just now found it available for sale online.
The Givenchy Antigona is seasons old by now, but the style continues to be a favorite for plenty of fashion lovers, including yours truly. A couple months ago, I bought myself a pale pink Antigona and I still adore the bag; it’s so girly, which is not always my style, but I kind of love having something different than my norm. I reviewed the bag and found quite a few areas that I think could be fixed, but because I love the look of the bag so much, I find myself checking out retailers’ newest arrivals to see the latest versions of the bag.
A couple weeks go, the youngest Kardashian-Jenner, Kylie, posted a picture on Instagram of an Antigona riding shotgun in her car. I immediately fell in love with the color combination.
The main color of this Antigona is tan, but the gussets are black and the shoulder strap and trim details are orange. This trifecta of colors is edgy and stylish; different from so many of the Antigonas I’ve seen and incredibly different from my super-girly version. I don’t love it just because it’s Kylie Jenner’s bag (although let’s just be honest and admit she has an amazing handbag collection), but I can thank Kylie for posting it and leading me to hunt it down.
