Anya Hindmarch Capability Raffia-Embroidered Woven Straw Tote: Right On the Hindmarch

Anya Hindmarch Capability Tote

I already love the Anya Hindmarch Capability bag. I have it in canvas and nylon, and true to its name, it’s a fight not to use it constantly. The oversized pockets are great for holding everything, yet it looks streamlined. Not like a bulky photographer’s camera bag with bulging pockets everywhere.

But a new version in raffia with amazing embroidery is clearly the standout beauty. This is what summer’s all about, or at least what it should be: light to the touch, airy to the eye, and breezy to behold. Overtly raw edges give the relaxed feel a tote with this spirit requires, but true to Anya’s always immaculate aesthetic, the bag is crisp and exact. There’s no souvenir-straw bag sloppiness. The embroidery is pristine, and the handles come in raw, tan leather to top off the clean feel. The ultimate summer tote: easy and laid back for beach while polished enough for every day in the city. On Net-a-Porter for $795.

Pair with: A rockstud sandal by Valentino is always a no-brainer, but their latest gladiator is a must. Clear PVC straps topped with nude vitello leather: it doesn’t get more refreshing than this for your feet. At Neiman Marcus for $1,095.
