Hi!

Im new here and just needing more suggestions or feedback which Antigona should I keep.

I recently bought Mini Antigona in Beige(cream/pale yellow) and the Small Black Croc Antigona (hasn't come yet) Im debating between which one to keep.

What are your opinion on this please. Thanks iN advance!

welcome! keep both, as the black one is a highly covetable bag, the embossing looks like the real thing and is very hard wearing. The cream is a great tone for year round wear and wardrobe matching. Looks great with winter whites to summer pastels to fall browns and navys. the black is also a bit more statement, gives all black outfits texture and slight sheen, while the cream is more casual. besides, every collection needs a dark and lighter color bag.

forgot to add that since they're diff sizes, more reason to keep both. add a twilly around the handle of the cream to change up the look too, and keep it clean.

My vote is for the black one. @randr21 gave you lots of good reasons. Not sure what else you have in your collection. I just like the visual impact of the black croc, and I think it will give you less headache in terms of wear and tear than the lighter bag (color transfer, marks, etc on lighter leather).

Actually I dont have any black yet in my collection, Im really looking for black. The only thing thats holding me is this Black Croc is in SmAll sz and im into mini, i havent seen the actual bag yet so Im still hoping its not too big and heavy. Thank u!:heart::smile:

I think if you have to keep one, maybe the black- I think the size means it's more wearable whereas the mini you'll have to be selective when you can use it so cost per wear I think black will win.
Also the black leather will be more durable, Antigona bags scratch super easily so the cream you will have to baby because of smooth leather + colour!
But maybe later on if you love it, get it!

How tall are you? The small bag is actually quite large for petite people. But the embossed croc on that one is gorgeous. The mini Antigona is kinda hard to get your hand into. It will scratch your skin. Not to the point of being painful but it's kinda annoying. Not only that, the strap buckles on the mini come off easily and people say sometimes their bags just drop because the buckle unhook itself.
