Anya Hindmarch has a lot going on for a new designer. Her aesthetic runs the gamut from uptown to downtown to something in between. The Cornelia is about as preppy and traditional as handbags come without being navy blue.
The black and white colorblocking adds interest to this otherwise traditional rectangular style, and the chain and bead strap gives it a bit of sparkle. But not so much sparkle that it isn't perfectly appropriate for daytime, of course. This will make a great everyday bag for taking just the basics to the office and back in reserved, but elegant, style.
The size is made for comfort. It's not so small that it won't accommodate the usual necessities: keys, cell phone, PDA, and a few cosmetics. But, it isn't so large that it will become unwieldy. Or, more importantly, uncomfortable, as chain straps have the tendency to dig in to your shoulders on larger styles.
The front closure adds a bit of a mod touch that makes the Cornelia a bit more versatile. I can see it working with a 60s style LBD as well as the usual office garb. And at $995, while it is pricey, it's not too bad for a bag that would certainly get everyday, and sometimes evening, use.
