Ah! When I saw this online, I knew I wanted it. Its an Anya Hindmarch bag. Anya Hindmarch was made famous for personalising her bags. You can have your photo or your kids photos or any personal photos on your own bag which makes it one of a kind.
Anyway, the “I’m not a Plastic Bag” bag is a canvas shopping tote. Its meant to be an enviromentally friendly creation, to reduce the use of plastic bags. I suppose you could say that I could just buy one of those green bags that are being offered at some supermarkets, but hey! Those aren’t Anya Hindmarch bags! :)
This one actually looks good carried outside of the grocery store and you could even take it on shopping trips or for a casual day out. Its that sort of bag. I want it! Even the celebs love it.
It was launched on June 20 in the USA and is expected to be taken worldwide by July. I checked the Anya Hindmarch website and it said that the one launched in our Malaysian stores will be white with grey lettering. I think the brown lettering one looks better, but its going over $200 on ebay!
It retails for $15 and GBP7.50 (RM52) in the USA and England respectively and I hope they don’t tack on some crazy mark up when they bring it in here to Malaysia. After all, its for a good cause. Saving the environment is always a good cause.
Anya Hindmarch stores in Malaysia are in 1 Utama U Parkson (TEl: : + 603 77242197) and KLCC (+ 603 23820877). I’ll update if I get any further news on its release and its price.
UPDATE: Its launching in Malaysia at KLCC on 6 July 2007. It will retail for RM55 and is limited.
