Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Shoes Timeline

The Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon style of court shoes has become something of an iconic shoe. The shoes, made from Melflex bubblegum scented plastic from the Melissa company, are mid heeled peep toe slingback court shoes, which have a stud fastening ankle strap. The shoes are sculpted and very comfortable to wear with a padded footbed, and the insole has the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Melissa logos as the shoe is a collaboration between both designers.

As a side note, there are also Lady Dragon shoes which have been made as a collaboration between Melissa and the designer Jason Wu which have a stylised golden bow across the toe. These shoes fall outside the scope of this article as they do not form part of the Vivienne Westwood / Melissa chronology, although they are available for purchase from the link at the foot of this page.

The first shoes to be released were the Lady Dragon Heart Shoes and the Lady Dragon Glitter Globe Shoes.

Anya Hindmarch Bathurst Bow Soft Satchel and Bathurst Eye

Anya Hindmarch Bathurst Bow Soft Satchel

Here we have the new Anya Hindmarch Bathhurst Bow Satchel, made from soft leather. It is available in bluebell, pictured left, and many other shades and textures (pictured below right) and is available right now from my-wardrobe.com at the link at the foot of this article.

The bag is a new style from Anya Hindmarch, and employs their trademark top quality leather and attention to detail. The bag is a structured, ladylike handbag which takes its name from the 1st Baron Bathurst, a politician from the 18th century.

In many ways, this bag has a vintage look, yet it is also thoroughly modern. Made from soft capra leather, the satchel is a flap over style with an enamel bow closure on the front, reminiscent of a cameo from days gone by.

The bag has a single top handle for carrying it in the hand, and comes with a further two removable leather straps, enabling the bag to be worn over the shoulder or across the body. One of the straps matches the colours of the bag and the other contrasts with it.
All the colours
Inside, the bag has a soft suede lining. In signature Anya Hindmarch style the pockets are labelled “Bits & Bobs”, “Sunglasses”, “Lipstick” and “Phone”. There is also a pen pocket and a detachable leather key fob.

There a popper fastenings on the side of the bag and studs on the base to offer protection.

It should be stated that this is a spacious bag, with plenty of room for all your bits and pieces whether you are using it as a power dressing workbag during the week, or as an accompaniment to your weekend style.

Anya Hindmarch Bathurst Eye

The Anya Hindmarch Bathurst Eye , as worn by Alexa Chung, is a similar style of bag which is available in calf leather and also the more exotic alligator. There is currently a waiting list for the Bathurst Eye bags.

The main difference between the bags is that the Bathurst Eye is considerably smaller than the Bathurst Bow, which is spacious and perfect for both work and weekend wardrobes.

Alexa Chung is a fashion icon who has a happy knack of carrying the most popular handbags of the season.

She is the winner of the British Style Award, and for the occasion she chose to carry the Bathurst Eye in black box calfskin leather.

She’s a lucky girl, as the rest of us mere mortals will have to join the waiting list to get the bag, but fortunately the bag is coming soon, and the larger Bathurst Bow is available right now!

Dimensions:

Bathurst Bow: 22cm x 32cm x 14cm
Bathurst Eye: 17cm x 21cm x 8cm
