We love Anya Hindmarch for designing bags that totally fulfill a woman’s needs of style as well as function. It’s easy to do one or the other but no other designer consistently does both so effortlessly and unerringly. This Nadja clutch demonstrates this talent perfectly. It is a classic clutch with subtle details that are part of the functionality, like the gold “V” which is actually slot for the flap. But the mind blowing feature – the clutch is reversible and in a way that is clever and seamless. It is a long flap with a pouch compartment connected to it, you flip it one way to reveal the leather side and the other way to reveal the python side and then you insert the envelope flap in the “V” which has a magnet to keep it closed. The flap also has a slot pocket, so it is fully functional and not just a piece of material (the pocket is on the back of the clutch but when flipped around it is on the inside and the other pocket is on the outside). I know my description is confusing, but trust me, it works well, in fact it is ingenious. Once it is in the configuration you want, it works like any other clutch, nothing awkward or weird. It is really really smart! There are a ton of combos but basically there are 2 sizes and come in leather/suede, python/leather or satin/leather (the cranberry seen here is amazing!!). They are incredibly well priced, the large size in leather/python is $895 (I got this in the Fumo color pictured here) and the small leather/satin is $495. This is a Fall preview so it will not be available until July or August.
