SOMETIMES YOUR WORDS JUST HYPNOTIZE ME
Posted on September 25, 2013 by Teresa Cannata'
What’s on top of my wish-list for the Fall 2013 season? A good structured bag is always in my dreams, but I’m currently lusting over a beautiful tiny collection of clutches by Anya Hindmarch. Everything I love of the British accessory brand can be found here – the original patterns, the simple and practical shapes, the exquisite care for details, the interesting colour combinations.
The Courtney Eye Twister Swirl clutch is made of canvas printed with a swirl pattern, and is embellished with Hindmarch’s trademark metal bow; it’s lined in suede and has an internal pocket. The zip top fastening is finished with velvet calf leather and a three-tiered tassel in three different shades of red.
The same clutch styles are available in a different, but equally mesmerizing, pattern called Eye Twister Pyramid. They feature cool shades of blue, grey and red, combined with a unique and playful pyramid pattern. The Courtney clutch is again embellished with a three-tiered tassel in three shades of blue.
It’s kind of ironic that I’m so drawn to these patterns, especially to the Swirl: I’ve always suffered from vertigo and this peculiar pattern definitely reminds me of the dizzy spells I get when I’m on top of a high building. It’s not ironic but totally natural the fact that I find myself attracted to what I’m afraid of, is it?
