Anya Hindmarch is one of those designers I didn't really take to right away. When she first came on the scene a few years ago, it seemed like she hadn't really found her own style, and her designs went back and forth between elegant and girly, with a lot of kitschy tote bags thrown in the mix. Now, however, her work is a little more defined, and I like her classy uptown take on everyday basics. The Westbourne is a great example of her more mature work, but it certainly isn't stuffy.
The weathered tan leather on the Westbourne has an almost bohemian appeal. The color has that faded look, and the appearance is distressed, but it's still smooth and supple to the touch. The warm tone of the gold hardware is the perfect complement to the color of the leather, and it adds the tiniest bit of bling.
I love how every aspect of the Westbourne has a geometric look. Every corner has been subtly rounded, which keeps the lines from looking too harsh and gives the whole look an elegant appeal. The front seam detail adds a bit of textural interest, and draws your eye towards the fabulous center clasp.
Honestly, the only drawback I see in the Westbourne is the fact that it's kind of large and doesn't have a shoulder strap. Personally, I would be more likely to use this bag as a weekender than as a daily bag, and I would eventually get tired of hand-carrying it. But, for its size and quality, the $1,100 price is right.
