Our 4 favourite Anya Hindmarch bags to take into the holiday season
Winters needn’t be dreary
No one does it quite like Anya. When thinking of playful quirkiness soldered to luxurious material and craftsmanship, we would turn to no other than Anya Hindmarch.
With the festive season in rapid approach, we can't help but to start seeking out key pieces to get our closets ready for the onslaught of events and parties. Which of these silhouettes from the Autumn/Winter 2017 collection would you tote around?
This season welcomes a mini version of the classic Bathurst. An eye-catcher in silver crinkled Capra leather, the Dragonfly Mini Bathurst Satchel will make the perfect accessory for casual cocktail evenings. The dragonfly reappears on the extra small version of the bag, front and centre. Accompanying the upfront whimsy is a zippy shade of teal. For those less fond of anthropods, laser-cut hearts with lovely branching straps should better tickle your fancy.
An arty statement for daytime—the Paperchain Orsett with colourful links and a chalk shearling front is the most jolly rendition of an artist's satchel we have ever seen. Sparkly with a side of serious, hold it by the beautifully crafted leather luggage handle or sling the paper chain over your shoulder to keep those hands free for some merrymaking. Other colour ways include a verdant teal and a pumpkin-spice evoking burgundy.
Almost synonymous with parties, the clutch gets an ultra wintery treatment for AW17. Surrounding the signature Anya Hindmarch eye, plush pieces of mink are joined together in indicate fur intarsia to form the most adorable fuzzy creature. On a less hairy front, the metallic circlulus pouches retain the same spirited fun with the front zipper mimicking a mouth when opened.
So you prefer the practical over the pretence of being able to fit your daily essentials into a tiny purse. The roomy bucket is made for you. Designed to drape beautifully against the body, it lends a delicacy to an often boxy silhouette. It's also the ideal base for customisation; seize the chance to make the bag exclusively yours with the new "Build a Bag" concept, where a dizzying selection of tassels, straps and stickers will have you spoiled for choice.
