A realisation of a long held dream
The culmination of 2 years of work and the realisation of our founder Anya’s long held dream, on May 17th we launched the Anya Village. On Pont Street in London a little village of stores opened to house all the ideas we have had over the years. It will be ever evolving and be a place where we pour all of our creative energy and collaborate on the subjects that interest us.
THE VILLAGE | ANYA CAFE
At the heart of The Village is the new Anya Cafe. Open from 8am-8pm to dine in or for takeaway, it serves breakfast, lunch and early evening drinks. Inspired by the British cafe of old but reimagined with the finest ingredients, and some trademark Anya humour, the Cafe offers a selection of specially created AH cakes and biscuits, designed to eat in or be taken away as gifts.
THE VILLAGE | THE VILLAGE HALL
The Village Hall
Our space that changes to offer different creative concepts and collaborations throughout the year will showcase our Be A Bag relaunch from 12th July to 14th August. To mark the relaunch of this important project the Village Hall will include a photography studio, where you can book to have a portrait taken and to turn into a Be A Bag if you wish. Book a session with noted photographer Chris Floyd, who has shot Paul McCartney and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or book in with Rhian of Gruff Pawtraits who will immortalise your dog with one of her trademark portraits.
THE VILLAGE | THE PLASTIC SHOP
The Plastic Shop
Dedicated to Anya’s passion for circularity of materials and reducing plastic going into landfill, the Plastic Shop centres around our ‘I Am A Plastic Bag’ sustainable collection and will be a platform to showcase and collaborate with others working and creating in this field.
THE VILLAGE | THE LABELLED SHOP
The Labelled Shop
Dedicated to the art of organisation and offering the best-selling Labelled collection: a system of cases and bags that are (quite literally) labelled to keep you organised. These will be presented alongside collaborations and workshops exploring the subject of organisation with anon-site embosser also offering personalisation.
THE VILLAGE | THE BESPOKE SHOP
The Bespoke Shop
Our very first Anya Hindmarch Shop that opened on Pont Street in 1996 and was the Anya Hindmarch HQ for the early years of the business. Our Bespoke Shop continues to focus on personalised gifts to pass down the generations that are not about a season but mark a special moment in time.
