Antigua - What do you girls think?

  1. A friend wants to sell her Antigua LV Cup MM to me at SGD750 (approx. US$480) and I'm tempted but I'm not sure if it's a wise choice because it just seems too expensive to be paying for canvas and it doesn't seem as hardy to me? My sister has the Antigua Rabat but that design doesn't grow on me.

    Any antigua owners here who can advise? :flowers:
  2. i use to not like the Antigua line until I had a close up look at it. The waffle canvas is very strong and resistant and I love the gold inventeur plate!
  3. Once folks get past the thought of paying a large amount of money for a bag that isn't "leather" (I get this statement a lot when asked about my Antigua), they'll realize the Antigua line is just as sturdy and quality-made as any and all LV bags.

    Just like the Damier Geant line, I've never had an issue with my Antigua. I can take it out in the rain, toss it around, and use it all the time and not have to worry about snags or anything. It's a great bag to use as a work tote or weekend bag or casual's not overtly LV as the mono, but I love it just the same. I get so many compliments on my Antigua as I've personalized it a bit (hotstamped luggage tag and panda cles attached). I really do recommend the Antigua line, especially because it's different, useful and really cute.
  4. I still can't get over paying that much for uncoated canvas - I don't think I'll ever be an antigua owner.
  5. I love that line! :love: I'm planning to get the Cabas GM as a work tote for winter. :yes:
  6. I thought the same thing about the denim line until DH bought the Baggy PM for me at Christmas! :lol:
  7. Ahh but it's a little different if it's a free bag since someone else bought it. :graucho:
  8. Free? Are you kidding? I still had to pay the bill! :lol:
  9. Oh boo !! That's not a gift at all then, I'd be like - I'm picking out a bag myself ! :P
  10. I have an Antigua Besace bag..It holds up better than THE MC..I can wear it in the rain without worrying about a certain PATINA!!!LMAO!ya'know?
  11. I really love the Antigua bags...I think they would look great with my casual style.
  12. DH loves to buy me LV although he complains that I'm on the LV forums too late into the night! :lol:

    I actually prefer him to ask me what I want - than I get what I want and we're both happy! :yes:
  13. I have the LV Cup Besace and like it. Try not to think of what material it is relative to price. Think of it as a good designed LV bag.

    Furthermore, you're getting it at a cheap price from a friend who you trust?! What more reasons do you need?
  14. I love the Antigua line it is so cute, I have the cabas (smallest one) & love it
  15. WOW how cool is that?? What a rockin' DH! :yes:
