New bag



A couple of times a year a man appears at my door with a handbag for me from Anya Hindmarch. This is the Jackson. Ivory glace leather with a patent insert and lock and a leather covered chain shoulder strap. Except that yellow bit is blue on mine.

Can I be friends with Anya too?

I saved and saved for her black naplak and navy suede Lautner bag, it is my everyday winter bag, and I get a thrill every time I use it!

Very enviable. How does the chain feel on your shoulder? Do you think that the leather will crease and/or scuff? If so, would it still look good with this wear?

I think you're very wise to have saved for the Lautner. I have the same one, it's fabulous.

Chain feels fine. All my Anya bags have worn extremely well, quality, you see.

That's a lovely bag. It's distinct, but not trendy; I'm betting you'll wear it for years.

Um, who is this man and how do I meet him?

Gorgeous bag.

I'm a bit nervous of bags with such a smooth finish. I look at them and see scratches that will of course appear the first time I take my keys out of the bag once I've left the shop. Mind you, apart from sticking the ones I'm not using in their dustbags, I don't do a lot to take care of them. Do you condition yours?

I don't mind scratches.
