High Times with Anya Hindmarch
(NEW YORK) From Calvin Klein’s post-CFDA bash to a Saturday afternoon stroll in the sun, there’s no question that New York is currently enamored with the High Line. Even British chicster Anya Himdmarch is showing her love. The designer has created a canvas tote to support the preservation and restoration of the High Line, displaying a historic black and white image of a freight train on the 75-year old steel structure.
"I wanted to get involved with the High Line because it is local to our headquarters in New York and because I thoroughly approve of a ‘park in the sky’, especially one that regenerates an existing structure,” said Hindmarch. "It is so romantic…I love the feeling that you are stepping back in time--the ghostly and beautiful nature of the abandoned rail yard when you are alone up there." Friends of the High Line who contribute $1500 to the organization will be gifted the tote--but for those pinching their pennies, a slightly different version can be picked up for $150 at Jeffrey or Anya's SoHo shop, and 25% of the proceeds will be donated to the non-profit organization Friends of the High Line.
