Hello I don’t own a Alma BB but I do own a givenchy antigona mini. The Alma Bb with vachetta isn’t carefree as the givenchy one.
the Alma bb in Damier Ebene also could be an option?
I really love the Givenchy Antigona Mini, its small but yet you can fit some stuff for everyday. Either bag is great so good luck in deciding!

EDIT: you might find a good preloved givenchy antigona Mini because givenchy is really bad in resale value, while Alma Bb still got good value.

Oh! Both of these bags are on my wish list! I love your taste! Either would be great. I'm leaning more Givenchy these days, but they are both fantastic. Good luck deciding!

Depends what you’re using it for. The antigona is more of a casual look than the alma. I had an epi alma bb, but ended up selling it because I never used it and the long, non-adjustable strap annoyed me.

I still have my mini antigona and it’s really durable. I’ve dropped it a bunch of times and there’s no scratches at all. However, between the two you posted, I’d go with the alma as I think it’s a more classic look that the antigona (not a fan of the croc texture).

I own an Alma BB in Epi and love the understated look and durability. It can be dressed up and down. I was not as impressed with Alma in DE and I’m not a fan of Alma in monogram. I also purchase with zero intent on reselling. Between the two, I would choose Givenchy.

I much prefer the the antigona. It’s much more carefree and the strap is adjustable. Also if worn crossbody it doesn’t jut out like the Alma bb.

Hi everyone,

Hi, I have both - DE Alma BB and mini Antigona in sugar leather caramel colour. I bought Antigona last year Black Friday and I have had Alma BB for about 5 years. I like them both, but to-date I have used my mini Antigona more than Alma BB. Antigona fits more, it’s more comfortable to use (no need to constantly re-arrange your items in order to avoid wonky zipper, it’s durable and the strap is somewhat adjustable.

I was between the two models too. But went with antigona in patent beige as I got an incredible deal on it. But Alma in epi or a limited edition is on my wishlist. Which one did you get?
I ended up getting both lol one as an end of the semester gift and the other cause I needed a new everyday bag. How/where did you purchase your Antigona from?
