Anya Hindmarch says she has "never been a believer in the 'it' bag. I think it is more important to buy something that you love and will cherish for a long time, not something that everybody else has." Doesn't much explain her "Not a Plastic" bag then, does it? [HuffPo]

Matthew Williamson said he's "feeling a bit nervous" about returning to London for his show this season, but is glad to be going back. The collection is reportedly sophisticated and powerful, "for a woman, not a girl." [British Vogue]
