Priyanka Chopra joins the long list of celebrities who travel with this timeless top-handled It-bag.
When you want a tried-and-true travel bag, we’d say it's safe to trust actress Priyanka Chopra, who estimates she’s accumulated “thousands” of stamps in her passport (her six passports, to be exact). The Bollywood-born star and travel advocate was seen at LAX airport last week carrying Givenchy’s Antigona bag on her way to New York City to kick off the “Baywatch” movie’s press tour.
Pairing effortlessly with Chopra’s chic jumpsuit, sunglasses, and stilettos, the boxy bag is a signature silhouette for celebs on the go. Since the Antigona bag launched as part of Riccardo Tisci’s Fall/Winter 2010 ready-to-wear collection for Givenchy, it’s been seen draped on the arms of Hollywood’s most talented women — the likes of Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Garner, and Rihanna — and fashion insiders from Rachel Zoe to Kate Moss.
The Antigona bag is the definition of a seasonless investment piece, packing practicality and style in spades: it’s roomy and it has a detachable shoulder strap, interior patch pockets, and bumper studs on the base. It was designed to last, in both style and construction. (Its name, borrowed from a Greek goddess, translates to "unbending," after all.) Chopra’s version is made of grained goatskin leather in pearl gray, but the bag comes in an array of tones and textures.
A designer duffle of such It-bag caliber will often set you back $2,000, at least, but we found the Antigona bag discounted on ssense.com (which also offers free shipping and returns in the U.S.), along with a few other sizes and styles that are on sale right now.
