The Standard Hotel employee who sold the security cam video of Solange Knowles and Jay Z’s fight to TMZ for an alleged $250K is not the only person hoping to profit from Elevator-gate. Designer Anya Hinchmarch, who made the handbag Solange used in her flailing attempt at fighting her brother-in-law, tweeted a new ad for the Crisp Packet Clutch, calling it “worth fighting for.” I’ll admit this made me giggle a little, but I also think it’s kinda gross to profit off of an inexcusable moment of violence. Even grosser: this stupid purse not only doesn’t come with potato chips inside, but costs a whopping $1600. DA. FUCK. [Naughty But Nice Rob]

Do Not Want: A YSL Bag Made Of Plastic Bags — For $1,720

For a while a few years ago, everywhere you looked you’d see those Anya Hindmarch “I Am Not a Plastic Bag” bags — a cheeky take on environmentalism and sustainability. Now, Yves St. Laurent has their own, rather twisted take on recycling; they’ve created a bag made from plastic bags and manufactured by artisans in Burkina Faso. And it costs $1,720. Called the “Muse Two Artisanal,” YSL says the bag show’s the company’s “commitment to innovation in design and particularly to corporate social responsibility, demonstrated in the initiative’s alliance with a non-profit women’s organization and its use of recycled materials.” But we’d like to know just how much of that immensely high sticker price is making it back to the women who made the bag.

Wear Your Relationship Status With Anya Hindmarch’s “Available” Bag

There are certain clichéd things women can do to tell the world, “I’m single and ready to mingle.” Most involve drastic hair changes and boob-spillage dresses. Of course, there’s also the classic Facebook relationship status change, which can often draw more attention than anything else. A decent middle ground? Anya Hindmarch‘s cute tactic: wear the designer’s everyday tote emblazoned on one side with the word “Available.” Of course, the other side reads “Unavailable” should things in your love life change. Otherwise, you could just cover up your boobs and call it a day. [Net-A-Porter.com] Keep reading »

Pre-Order Your Anya Hindmarch For Target Bag Now

British accessories designer Anya Hindmarch (the woman behind the “I am not a plastic bag” canvas totes) has designed a collection of handbags for Target, and even though they’re technically not available until Oct. 12, Target.com is allowing pre-orders right now. The Anya Hindmarch for Target bags all cost between $19.99 and $49.99 and are made of PVC plastic. While some people might turn their noses up at PVC, I rather like the idea of not having to worry about my bag getting ruined in a downpour. [Target via Fashionista] Keep reading »
