Yay! Please, please, please post some mod shots of your Antigona - I'm dying to see how it looks on. Super curious if it maintains that structured look, or if it slouches like a Pandora.

This is mine, I'm not holding it in this pic, but mine holds its shape for the most part unless I put something really heavy in it, then the bottom gives out a little bit, otherwise it keeps it's shape. I'm not sure about the calf skin, but the one I got is the shiny leather which is a bit more tougher than calfskin one.

Thank u I will!!! I am so happy with this one. I found that the calfskin was way too delicate for me, had scratches all over the display. Love love love!

Does anyone know why the medium antigona on Barney's website cost $500 more? is it different type of leather than the $1900+?

TIA!

Yes, it depends on the leather and the color. Like the tricolor medium (gorgeous!!!) is a lot more. I've been really liking the Antigona tote bag on Barney's website!

Ehem! I have photos, I do. I just haven't has time to start a thread. It doesn't slouch like the Pandora at all, but I am really digging the semi-structured look.

The shiny leather is regular leather and seemed more durable. I'll post up pics tonight :-) I love everyone's bags on this forum!!
congrats, i'm debating getting the same one. only thing holding me black is the fact that it's basic black. if it had another color along the piping or something, i'd be more keen. are you still glad you got the black?

Hi there! No it is not the spazzalato leather. It was just called "shiny black leather" I think the leather is just regular leather that has been polished to make it shiny but on the matte side. it is not patent though. This was last seasons so I'm not sure if they will have the exact same one in medium, they might though. If you ask sales associate they might be able to track one down for you :-) I got mine at Barneys if that helps.

It is a medium but I'll take a picture of me carrying it tonight when I get home so you can see what size it is. Depending how tall or short you are, small might be a better choice, when I first got the medium I thought it was HUGE but it grew on me :-)...the large size was out of the question, way too big for me. I'll take a pic tonight though!
