The London Times has a great (and huge) article today on Anya Hindmarch and the backlash for her now infamous non-plastic bag. The tote was created to inspire eco-friendly shopping, but ended up causing stampedes all over England when women couldn't get their hands on one. It's been photographed on Keira Knightley, Lily Cole, and - our favorite - Style.com editor Laird Borrelli, but it's also inspired harsh criticism from those who question if sweatshop labor was used to make them, and why the London totes got delivered in giant plastic bags. American fashion editors tell us that their bags came in paper boxes, which we hope were recycled. But we also hope a few of the spoof bags - shown at left - get sold here. They may be bitchy, but we haven't laughed this hard since we saw Jessica Simpson's Met Ball dress. Oops. We didn't mean to say that out loud...
