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!
