Combining wit with fashion, Anya Hindmarch seems to have hit a note with her Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, Counter Culture. The collection is a series of bags inspired by everyday household items popular in the designer’s home in Britain: Washing powder box, chocolate digestive biscuits, cereal box, and crisp packets – but with a touch of luxury given by materials like intarsia leatherwork, printed python and ponyskin.

The bags are available in a varied colour palette of olive, cobalt and burgundy and contrasting colours of red, yellow and white. Textures as well as colours create a popping effect on bags that are complete with surprising details and functionality.
