Anya Hindmarch Have A Nice Day Bags

We’re no strangers to seeing designers take iconic everyday items and turning them into high fashion.  Who can forget the Celine nylon Chinatown bag coats, shoes and bags from Fall 2013? Now British designer Anya Hindmarch has taken that everyday takeout plastic bag – New York bodegas give these bags out like candy. The ‘Happy Shopper’ bag is made of python leather and retails for $4,160.  The bag is currently sold out but with a long wait list for those who want to snag this kitschy item.

According to the brand, the bag is:

Inspired by our passion for finding the beauty in the banal, our Happy Shopper tote is our luxurious take on the classic shopping bag. Crafted from printed python skin, it’s lined in soft suede with hand-painted edges. The short handles offer a more modern way to wear it, either hand held or over your arm.

So what say you? Love it or loathe?
