Anya Hindmarch SS16

The bodysuit with no pants look is generally not something I go for; in styling it always seems to me like you couldn't pull enough skirts to finish the suit. I do love a good backpack, however, and the Russian gymnast inside of me really wants to wear that bodysuit. The styling is so well done, I can imagine so many ways this look could be totally screwed but the London designer really had a complete concept here. I noticed that Moda Operandi carried the collection in a trunkshow but (being a month late on this one) it has completely sold out. 

Anya Hindmarch told The Daily Telegraph (Business of Fashion) she got her start designing bags in her kitchen, borrowing £1,000 from a friend for production, and sending it to a magazine (which lead her to sell £7,000 worth of handbags). She was later knocked off by her factory who was selling her designs to Harvey Nichols and moved her production to the UK, where she began working with craftsman. The quality is what has created the product she designs today. One of Hindmarch's greatest successes was her "I'm not a plastic bag" shopping bag, which sold out around the world.
