Anya Hindmarch Neeson Woven Leather Tote | Crafty Metallic Gold Leather Tote With Tassel Detail

Posted on: May 1

Anya Hindmarch's quirky, feminine designs are quickly taking the fashion world by storm. She seems to have a direct line to the psyche of the urban fashionista and what her current needs are. Which is why this Neesom woven leather tote looks a little out of keeping with her usual design sensibility.

It isn't that the Neesom isn't cute; it just looks a little played out. The metallic leather is shiny and showy, and while I like the combination of weaving and metallic, I just don't think it's working here. The Neesom just looks like it's trying a little too hard.

Perhaps it's the overabundance of detail that is distracting. Not only is the bag woven and metallic, but it also has an intarsia bow and giant central tassel. It just seems like a little too much for one bag. I do, however, like how the woven parts contrast with the shiny front strap detail.  And I also think that the generous size looks really fabulous with the tiny front flap closure. I just wish that the Neesom wasn't trying to accommodate all these design elements at once.

At $1,200, the Neesom is priced at the level of your average everyday designer bag, but it isn't really made for everyday use. It's more like a one hit wonder.
