Anya Hindmarch “Hector” in Pewter Python


I am back from my Martha’s Vineyard vacation refreshed and uplifted! I missed the Obamas by a day but did see secret service helicopters circling around. While on vacation mode (dressed in bathing suit cover up, summer dress or pajamas the whole time and shopping for lobster chotskies and canvas totes) I was completely removed from anything fashionable and stylish. And that’s a good thing. Gives me perspective! It’s great to fall in love with outrageously pricey impractical bags and shoes because it shows you have passion but when it comes to actual purchases, it’s good to have your head on straight. Like this python tote from Anya Hindmarch, which I saw at Fall Preview earlier this year and after all this time, I am still in lust and it will be a must. It has all the glam you need and want (although in person it is not as shiny as this picture) but the bag is super lightweight and handy as a carry all for everyday life. It is definitely more pewter and less gold than it is showing here, which means, it can go with either! It uses small scale skins and not the belly side, but for the price I can totally live with that. At Anya Hindmarch online for $2645.

    Is it just me or does anyone else like or prefer the small scale skins for a change? I have a hand-painted Anya Vigo Python handbag & the scales on the bag are small. However, the scales on the handle are huge & appear to come from the belly side of the snake. I LOVE the variation & think it makes the bag unique in that regard!!

    My friend has the exact same Vigo bag but in black & the scales on her strap are the same small size as the rest of her bag. I think each one turns out a little different & that’s pretty cool!! The Hector is fabulous & would look amazing in natural light with just a hint of subtle shimmer 🙂

    Now you’re speaking my language. This is when if you’re in a rush the bag can give you instant chic; with skinny jeans or leggings or long skirt and ballet slippers or boots and a bomber jacket or trench and voilla! Too bad I can’t afford it. Soon its’ made in China look-a-like PVC cousin without the cool chain will come along, and I can’t by that either because the workers are exploited, and PVC manufacturing pollutes everything:(
