I'm more of a shoes girl than a handbag hoarder, (especially not "It Bags", it's so unimaginative buying the same as everyone else [which is my main problem with Zara]) but my favourite handbag design has to be Givenchy's sleek structured Antigona handbag.

If money was no object, after writing this I'd close my laptop and cycle over to Selfridges on Oxford Street to pick up a medium-sized leather Antigona from the French powerhouse. You know, just as a little weekday pick-me-up treat. However, they're £1,000+ and I don't seem to be able to save up for one... Hopefully one day I will, but in the meantime: which colour?
