Givenchy Faux Leather Bag? If Only That Was The Only Problem With This Antigona Replica!

Categories:Other Brands

About a year ago I wrote a piece on designer bags made of artificial leather that was inspired by a Givenchy faux leather bag. The iconic Antigona bag, to be more precise.

Givenchy Faux Leather Bag Real vs Fake Antigona

Back then I was talking about the real Givenchy Antigona Medium but today I’m going to talk about a Antigona Givenchy replica that is obviously not made of real leather either.

Givenchy Faux Leather Bag – Is It Worth It?

My only problem with the authentic Givenchy faux leather bag was its ridiculous price. To me it just didn’t make any sense to spend 2k dollars on rubberised PVC. While I completely understood the ethical reasons behind this, I couldn’t understand why they would ask so much for it. I get people who would wear it to stay true to their values, but shouldn’t it be less expensive?

Some people loved the “vegan” version of the Antigona because they thought that leather-averse bag lovers should be able to enjoy high-end designer bags as well. Others hated it because they thought that Givenchy faux leather bag was just a drab version of the original Antigona. Here’s a photo of the faux leather Givenchy Antigona I’m talking about:

A reader sent me some photos of her new Antigona Givenchy replica and I have to tell you, there are big differences in quality when it comes to replica bags. It is extremely obvious that this Antigona bag is not made of real leather but that’s not the only reason why it looks so cheap.

You can find a guide on how to authenticate Givenchy Antigona bags here on Spotbags that is also useful for those who are looking for great replicas of this bag. The Givenchy Antigona is already considered an iconic bag, so just like in the case of the ever-popular Givenchy Pandorareplica, people can’t get enough of it! Which is why there are so many replica versions of the Antigona bag that vary from really cheap (both in price and in appearance) to expensive high-end replicas.

The Givenchy Antigona replica in this review is definitely one of the cheap ones. As far as I know the bag was bought from Ioffer but I don’t know any details about the seller.

Antigona Givenchy Replica Review

“Hi Eva,

Got this Antigona Givenchy replica from a seller with many ioffer good reviews. Now that I actually received it I understand that not all those people who comment there know how good replicas should look like. I feel like I got scammed in a way but I know it’s really my fault…

Anyway, I know you always say we should check other customer reviews and I just wanted to tell people to be more careful.

Take a look and let me know what you think please. The bag was super cheap btw, so I’m not upset :) Also, it looks pretty much like the photos the seller has on his page, so I’m not mad at him either”

My advice regarding checking out the customer reviews was actually for the sellers on aliexpress.com/ . I received plenty of Aliexpress reviews lately that proved there are some really good replica sellers there. But I haven’t received any ioffer good reviews to prove me wrong. But you are right about one thing: even when the customer reviews are real, you can’t expect everybody to be a replica expert. So even if someone rates a replica bag with five stars, this doesn’t mean the bag is actually worth the five stars. People’s opinions are the result of subjectivity…

This replica Givenchy faux leather bag has plenty of flaws. If I were to write a new piece on “How to authenticate Givenchy Antigona”, I would probably use these photos and say “Just make sure it doesn’t look like this at all”. Yup, it’s that bad.

My problem with this Givenchy faux leather bag is not just the material it’s made of, really. A replica bag made of imitation leather can still look good. The most obvious giveaways are the triangle pad, the metal logo, the hardware engravings, the base pads, the interior tag and the size of the handles. So basically the entire bag is an obvious fake.

My conclusion? While when it comes to authentic bags the price is not necessarily a quality standard, when it comes to replica bags it definitely is. I’m sure the Givenchy Antigona Medium will remain one of the most popular designer bags this year too, so let me know if you need any more advice on how to authenticate Givenchy Antigona bags!

Also, I just realized there’s not a single review of a Givenchy Pandora replica on the blog, which is super weird because I know how sought-after this bag is. So is any of you girls willing to send me a review of this Givenchy bag?

Givenchy Baby Pandora Pouch

Categories:Other Brands

Givenchy-Baby-Pandora-Pouch-Blood-Red

Sling it on your shoulder and feel how it naturally falls forward. The first time I saw the Givenchy Pandora Bag I melted like a strawberry ice cream lost in the dessert. I mean, it’s a unique shoulder bag that got everything you need – a front pocket, lots of spaces and it got the style too.

For the Fall Winter 2014 Collection, Givenchy introduced the unexpected, which make us all surprised. They released the Pandora Bag in a pouch version, and you know, they made it as tiny as they possible could and my gosh, what a baby!

The Givenchy Baby Pandora Pouch is painted in so-many rainbow colors that I am certain, your favorite will be somewhere in between. Instead of a shoulder strap, it comes with a leather chain wristlet and its really perfect if you already own the Givenchy Pandora Bag, put the Baby Pandora Pouch inside or use it as a wallet.

What you need to know! It features a zip closure and two external zip pockets. It’s basically crafted from goatskin, the leather is a bit grained and I absolutely love it. The signature Givenchy is printed on the top. And by the way, if one of your best friends birthday is coming up and she is a bag obsessed (like us, no cure, we guarantee), then this can make her so happy. Measuring 10 x 18 x 8 (H x W x D) cm,

Givenchy Leather Guide

Categories:Other Brands

Givenchy-Calf-Leather

Givenchy Calf Leather
When it comes to Givenchy Calf Leather, there’s so many positive benefits it’s not even funny. It’s the go-to option for the majority of women due to its price, its appearance, and its functionality. It’s a lightweight leather that looks magnificent in any color, and its buttery smooth texture won’t get rough with time. It is practically resilient to everything and is not prone to scratches or scuffs in the slightest. Definitely a top notch leather with a sleek and slick appearance that is absolutely beautiful in every way. If you want an easy-to-use leather that won’t be easily damaged, this is a wonderful choice.

Givenchy-Lambskin-Leather

Givenchy Lambskin Leather
To put it plainly, Givenchy Lambskin Leather is gorgeous. It is delicately soft and has a beautiful texture with slight grainy detailing. Being one of the most lightweight leathers on the market, it’s a great option for bags or other items that will be used often. However, delicate lambskin should be handled with care as it is more prone to marks and scratches than other leathers. Choosing a bag in a darker color is a wonderful choice as the color will cover up smaller scratches that don’t need professional care.

Givenchy-Sheepskin-Leather

Givenchy Sheep Leather
Sheep leather is a big hit in the fashion industry, and for good reason too. This tough-as-nails material is not only incredibly durable, but is also light as a feather. It can withstand almost anything and isn’t prone to scratches and scuffs like most other leathers, making it a great option for bags you’ll use often. Givenchy Sheep Leather is also insanely gorgeous, with a wrinkled, funky texture that many women adore. If you’re not into the sleek and mod look or just want to switch it up, Givenchy Sheep Leather is highly recommended.

Givenchy-Patent-Leather

Givenchy Patent Leather
Givenchy Patent Leather is unlike any other patent leather on the market. Nine times out of ten, women are afraid of choosing this type of leather as it’s a grounding point for scuffs, scratches, fingerprints- the list goes on and on. However, Givenchy’s patent leather is extremely hardy and actually makes for a wonderful leather on everyday items. Thanks to its plastic covering and wrinkled/washed appearance, Givenchy Patent Leather won’t be ruined by water and can handle almost anything- including those pesky fingerprints that never cease to disappear. All in all, Givenchy Patent Leather gives you that old school 50’s feel that is chic and swank- without all the mess and worry of traditional patent leather.

Givenchy-Buffalo-Leather

Givenchy Buffalo Leather
If you’re looking for a leather that is totally exotic in every sense of the word, then you may as well choose Givenchy Buffalo Leather. This outstanding leather comes with a unique out appearance that has a natural wrinkled textured that is both funky and modern. It’s a wonderful sight and fairly easy to take care of- just taking regular precautions to not damage your bag will work fine. The only downfall to buffalo leather is that is can be a lot heavier than other leathers, which can leave your bag with an overbearing feeling (especially if you’re one too stuff your bag with items).

Givenchy-Goat-Leather

Givenchy Goat Leather
Givenchy Goat Leather is an astoundingly beautiful sight. It comes with a natural wrinkled appearance that is both casual and cool. This sophisticated leather is surprisingly lightweight, which means carrying around your goat leather items is a breeze. Another positive benefit of this particular leather is that it’s fairly durable and can be worn day in and day out without worry of scratches. However, goat leather has a rather sturdy and rough feel to touch that some are turned off by.

Givenchy-smooth-vs-grained

Givenchy Smooth Versus Grained Leather
When it comes to choosing between Givenchy Smooth or Givenchy Grained Leather, it’s really a matter of personal preference. Both are gorgeous to sight and have their positives and negatives. For one, the smooth leather has a more sophisticated and elegant appearance that can easily be dressed up or down. However, scratches and scuffs may show up more easily on this sleek and modern surface. On the other hand, grained leather has a more casual and fun appearance with a funky texture many adore. It’s less prone to scratching or other mishaps, and if such scuffs do occur, they won’t be as noticeable thanks to the engraved pebbles. So which one is right for you? It all depends on whether you want a super sleek or funky, trendy look!

Givenchy-Zanzi-Leather

What is Zanzi Leather?
Don’t be alarmed the next time you see the word ‘zanzi leather’. Zanzi leather is simply just lambskin, otherwise known as the softest and most delicate leathers on the market. Lambskin is smooth and creamy with a decadent texture that looks great on every bag. However, you must take special precaution with this delicate leather as it can easily be damaged with scuffs and scrapes.

How To Spot A Givenchy Antigona Knockoff Or How To Choose A Great Givenchy Antigona Replica!

Categories:Other Brands

The Givenchy Antigona knockoff is one of the most popular handbag styles from this brand and whenever a bag rises to stardom more and more replicas show up. Also, if you need to choose between Givenchy Antigona Medium vs Small, let me try to help choose the best size for you.

How To Spot A Fake Givenchy Antigona Bag

After noticing that many of you ladies are interested in this Givenchy replica bag, I decided to make a “How To Spot A Fake Givenchy Antigona” guide with lots of pictures to get my point across. Here are the essential elements you should check for this bag if you want to protect yourself from fake Givenchy bags!

The Construction

First of all, let’s start with the construction of this bag. The Givenchy Antigona is meant to be a structured tote, so this goes for the Givenchy Antigona replica as well. A good Givenchy bag replica should be able to stand on its own, so if the leather is too soft or slouchy and the bag loses its shape easily, then it’s a bad copy. This applies to the Givenchy Antigona medium smooth leather tote and the Givenchy Antigona Small Sugar Goatskin Satchel Bag as well, this is a structured tote no matter the leather type.

The Triangle Pad

Then there’s another major giveaway that makes most Givenchy Antigona knockoffs easy to spot. It’s what I call the “logo triangle pad” – the leather patch that’s right in between the handles and that has the metal Givenchy logo on it. The pointy part of the triangle pad should be placed in the middle of the two handle tabs but let’s say this is not so obvious for an untrained eye. What is actually more important in my opinion is that the leather pad shouldn’t be neither too flat nor too “puffy”. I think these are the best words to describe it, I hope you girls can get what I mean. I have to say, I’ve seen some Givenchy knockoff bags with really flat triangle leather pads and they looked awful. Here are two examples that prove my point:

The Logo

There’s another major flaw that many Givenchy knockoffs have and that is a really poor logo. You can easily notice that if you pay a bit of attention. For most Givenchy replica bags the metal letters in the logo are either misaligned, poorly cut, put too close together or they have different fonts or thickness. Just look at the photo below: notice how the “G” is much thinner than the “N” or the “C”?

Here is a clear photo with the original logo so that you study the font, the thickness of the metal letters and the space between them closely:

The Handles

The handles of the Givenchy Antigona tote are tubular, pretty thin and stiff enough to stand on their own in a U-shape. If they are flimsy, then the leather/material used for that Givenchy fake bag is not the good type.

The Handle Tabs

Look at the handle tabs/holders – first of all, check their shape and also the stitching. The first leather patch should be rounded at the bottom, tubular and not too wide and the second handle base has four corners at the bottom. The handles should have tone-on-tone, clean, sturdy stitching.

The Base Pads

Now look at the two leather tabs on the bottom of the bag. First of all, they should both have the same size, obviously. They should neither be too wide not too thick. And again, look at the stitching and see if it’s uniform and clean. The stitching should be ON the base tabs, not around them. This is one of the most common flaws Givenchy fake bags have and an easy way to spot a fake Antigona bag.

The Shoulder Strap

Just like in the case of the handle holders and the base pads, the shoulder strap should also have just the right width. The thickness of the Antigona’s shoulder strap is great because it’s neither too slim not too thick (so the width should be medium-sized), so it feels really comfortable on the shoulder. The two metal buckles on the shoulder strap can’t be moved and they only serve decorative purposes.

The Lining

It’s not true that the Givenchy Antigona inside should always feature black fabric lining no matter the color of the exterior like some people claim. For some colors Givenchy uses beige canvas lining, like the one you can see below. What is true though is that the color of the lining should not match the color of the exterior of the bag unless it’s the black Antigona! If we were to make a Givenchy Antigona vs Prada Saffiano, I think the Givenchy Antigona inside would lose because it’s not very luxurious. But anyway, if your Antigona has a different type of material in the interior, then it’s probably a replica Givenchy bag.

The Leather Tag

Now let’s focus on the interior leather tag with the words “GIVENCHY MADE IN ITALY” heat-stamped on it that should be placed right under the zippered pocket. The stamp should be centered and clear and the leather flap should have clean edges. Just like in the case of the metal letters, the stamp logo should also be aligned and the letters should not be so deeply embossed into the leather that they become almost impossible to read. The same font used for the metal logo should be used for the interior logo.

Givenchy Antigona Medium vs Small

– this is a tough one but I think my favorite is the small Antigona, it has the better size for a city bag. Still, the Medium one would make a better work bag or traveling bag because it holds more. I don’t know why I keep going back to the Givenchy Antigona vs Prada Saffiano comparison, but I think the Prada Saffiano is a better work bag because the interior is also well-compartmented.

See, even though the Givenchy Antigona Medium bag has a relatively simple design, it’s not easy to imitate. There are many details that make the difference, so it’s not as easy to find a great Givenchy Antigona knockoff as one might think. I didn’t want to say a perfect Givenchy Antigona replica bag because after all some flaws can be overlooked easier than others. But at least this way you’ll know how to avoid the dead giveaways.

Either if you’re planning to buy the real Givenchy Antigona bag or get a really good replica, I think this “How To Spot A Fake Givenchy Antigona” guide will prove to be helpful! And if you have any other questions about this bag, I’m here to help!
