Anya Hindmarch Loose Pocket Cases and Key Pouches
Anya Hindmarch — a gal that likes to put labels on her bags. She’s famous for the I’m Not A Plastic Bag canvas shopping tote, but did you know she has produced other bags with writing on them? Above, you’ll find a Loose Pocket Case and a Key Pouch from her collection. Hmm, if you ask me, they are coin purses. But leave it to designers to give sophisticated names to ordinary objects!
The Loose Pocket Case (left) is constructed of metallic leather. It features this adorable scalloped edge and is embossed with a saying. This particular one is pink and says “Fun Money”, but it is also available in a “Cruise Fund” (gold) and an “Odds & Sods” (blue) version. The case measures 7″ x 4 1/2″ x 1/2″ and retails for $145. Now if only she would have designed one that said “Handbag Fund”!
The Key Pouch (right) is constructed of pebbled leather. It features a tasseled zipper pull and a spring-clasp keyring. The one shown is a chestnut brown and is gold embossed with the word “Work”. This key pouch is also available in a “Home” (blue) and a “Car” (tan) version. The pouch measures 5″ x 3″ and retails for $135. Now you can have your keys organized and ready for a quick “grab and go”!
Most amusing about these coin purses, I thought, was how they have this “Martha Stewart” aura about them. Is it just me, or does this seem like something she would create with her trusty sewing machine and glue gun?
