Anya Hinmarch Nevis Tote, $995 in leather or $495 in rubber. Both via Net-a-Porter

We first brought you news of these bags back when the rubber version of the Anya Hindmarch Nevis Tote was in pre-order, but now that the leather version has surfaced in all of its colorblocked glory and both are available for immediate purchase, we thought the design seemed worth a revisit. Rubber, leather, whatever – I can’t get over how much I like this bag. It’s just so simple.

The key to my love, though, is that the bag is simple without being dull. North-south totes under $1000 are a dime a dozen, but the unfinished edges and bold, modern color arrangements of this bag in particular make standouts out of both versions. As you can see, the leather option gives you more of a traditional slouch; the bag is soft and pliable, and I’d also hazard a guess that it’s quite lightweight.

On the other hand, the rubber version lacks the leather’s slouch, but it still looks like it would be maleable and incredibly lightweight, not to mention a strong option for people who try to limit their use of leather or animal products for ethical reasons. (Although, it should be noted, the handles are leather, so it’s not completely vegan.) Another thing this bag lacks: half the price tag of the leather version, which can be had for $995 via Net-a-Porter. The rubber, on the other hand, is priced at $495.

    the bag (leather) is beautiful but for a shopping bag is really too expensive…

    i wish the red combo comes in leather, i would have snatch one up in a heartbeat!

  • Laura

    I love the color blocking :)

    Those colors together on both bags. I would have to say that I prefer the leather version because the white really made the bag look striking.
    While I love the pink version, I could never justify spending that much money for a rubber bag. I have been wondering if it has a smell.

    I do like the design but I’m confused as to why rubber was used when it’s not an option for people who don’t use animal products.

  • Midnight Blue
