Sophistication and a great concern for versatility define the latest Anya Hindmarch spring/summer 2012 handbag collection and, with the grand diversity of shapes, sizes and style perspectives, it becomes pretty easy to find things that enable you to look and feel spectacular regardless of the occasion. From summery totes or practical handbags to evening clutches and totes, the styles range from relaxed and casual to classical and elegant with simple yet strong elements to set them apart while still maintaining a modern vibe.

Combining bold tones with more subdued spring appropriate tones or versatile neutral ones, the designer manages to appeal to a wide set of customers. Those who are looking for the cutest handbag style to carry their beach essentials will be delighted by the straw handbag with romantic floral theme details. Trendy vibes make the extensive collection all the more versatile and no desire is left unfulfilled. Spacious or discreet, sturdy and glamorous or cute and trendy, the right handbag style is waiting to be picked out.

Fringes, chains, zippers, metal accents and the now omnipresent exotic skin texture transform the simplest designs into fabulous choices for the new season and even for the seasons to come. Playful and lighthearted or modern and balanced, the right touches can truly make a difference when it comes to the appeal of a certain handbag. But, while plenty of functional designs capture our attention, clutches with a strong elegant touch are the ones that steal the spotlight.

Black and gold combos are a strong presence in the new season fashion trends and, looking at the designs from the latest collection is not hard to see why. Luxurious, versatile and spectacular, the mix brings some of the most desirable choices into one attractive design that spells refinement and glamor. Those who are fond of eclectic designs will definitely enjoy sparkly fruit shaped clutches that can easily serve as a fun, whimsical touch to a dressy outfit.
