The "It" Bag

Anya Hindmarch's plastic bag has caused quite a commotion in London; however, as of today the bag has caused quite a stir all over the U.S. with it's release. I've never seen a designer have more say on their bag as well. Anya Hindmarch released a couple thousand word statement just to describe to customers: the ways to get the bag, it's environmental impact, where to find(not just the name of the store but listed about 9,000 details), price, & even the most minuscule details describing the "it" bag and ways for all the fashionistas to get their own. The lines were long about an hour & a half if you were 110th or so in line, but even worse for the procrastinators that showed up late. However, if you are desperate for this bag you can pay from 5-12 times the original 15$ price on eBay.

"The bag will be available from all US Anya Hindmarch stores, Ron Herman and Fred Segal Flair for just $15. Due to overwhelming demand purchases will be limited to two bags per customer.

The bag will also be available from Holt Renfrew in Canada for $18 (Canadian dollars).

From 18th July the bag will be available at selected Whole Foods Market stores."- Anya Hindmarch site
