When Seattle-born designer and OSCAR & ANNA
founder Anna Zefferys
realised she couldn't find a bag that could easily and elegantly carry her heels or wrap that was stylish enough for cocktail parties, she did what she knows best.... and designed one for herself!
|The O*A "A SHOE IN" Bag|
It took several months of sketching and modeling to come up with a design which was at the same time sleek, sexy and functional (she made extra sure she could accomodate an iPad as well as the new 13" MacBook Pro).
It was a process of research and trial and error to get it right, but the EUREKA moment was as she says 'most rewarding' and clients keep coming up to her to tell her what 'everyday use' ideas they have come up with for the 'atypical' bag.
From an atypical baby bag for young (and not so young) mums, to wine bottles for wine tastings.... the sky is the limit.

The Green Pebbles Girls
have also come up with a few bright ideas of our own, but as major Apple fans we are delighted that our Ipads, and particularly our MacBook Pro will have a bag they will actually fit in!
The A Shoe In Bag is probably our favourite. Available in butter and hot pink it has spacious upper and lower compartments.
This is a fabulous idea because it means you can put all your essentials, in our case our iPhones, wallet, makeup, a mini perfume and keys in the top half of the bag (no rummaging at the bottom of one's bag in the search of the smaller items anymore)

Then of course there is all the space you need for your ipad or macbook or shoes (the bag comes with its own twill 0*A shoe bag!) etc etc in the bottom half. GENIUS!
Not forgetting of course that they really do look rather fabulous too!
The Shoe in Bag bag is a generous 14" wide and 13" tall and is made using Italian leather and lined in yellow gold.
|The O*A "CLANDESTINE" bag |
in Midnight Blue
For those who prefer a larger and less classic look then Anna and Oscar (her magnificent Vizsla) have devised the wonderful Clandestine made of soft Italian leather like the A Shoe In bag but 17" wide.
Available in black Noir and Midnight Blue the bag is practical and comes with a comfortable strap handle with an 8" drop.
If on the other hand you are looking for a smaller bag with a long strap to wear across, Anna has developed a petite pouch with a practical magnetic flap top to keep all your basics safe and sound called the Has Been Bag.
|The O*A" HAS BEEN" Bag in Merlot|
The Has Been Bag is a 8" x 5 3/4 " x 2" in size with an 18" strap and is available in Merlot Red and Midnight Blue.
All the O*A bags are available to purchase online from the O*A online shop.
