Maybe I’ve watched one too many commercials for “The Last Exorcism” but when I saw this Givenchy Antigona Madonna-Print Large Shopper Bag in my inbox, I was not intrigued, but terrified! With a partly concealed, slightly haunting face on the front, at first glance I thought it looked a bit ghastly and creepy. I was relieved to learn the imagery wasn’t anything ghostly or ghoul-like; but just an abstract Madonna face. The printed face is atop a coated canvas body (measuring 12 & 1/2″ x 22″ x 7″) with vegetable-tanned leather details and silver hardware. It also features an open top, 7″ shoulder straps, a canvas lining and a matching removable zip pouch (measures 8 & 1/2″ x 6″).
Givenchy has been doing these face print handbags and fashions for several seasons now. While I thought the Givenchy Rottweiler and shark prints were kinda cute, this one is a no for me. Yes, it’s Madonna and not some evil spirit that needs to be exorcised but still, this is not a bag I’d want around my house. Honestly, the look of it kinda gives me the creeps – it’s like one of those paintings where the eyes seem to follow you around the room. Please and no thank you.
What do you think of the bag? Like it/love it/creeped out by it but still want it? Pre-order now!
