If Wanstead was a handbag, what sort of handbag would it be?

This is the answer, apparently. For just 125 of Her Majesty’s pounds, you can obtain a Radley Wanstead Chambray bag, pictured, which is described by its creators as “spacious and light to carry”, and a “must-have Spring Summer accessory” with “a wide casual shape and a contrast leather trim”.

The Radley site continues:

A fun rope and leather charm hangs from the handle and there is a quirky sprig and spot pattern on the interior lining. This bag is the perfect size to carry everything you need for a Summer day out

So the challenge for Wansteadium readers is to suggest ways in which the Radley Wanstead Chambray is appropriately named, i.e., in what way is this bag anything like Wanstead? Suggestions via the comments form, Twitter or Facebook please.

Update 2335: Dave Buba up first with:

it understated, tasteful but perhaps a little dull compared to the Radley Loughton which is White leather and brassy and the Radley Chigwell which is expensive but unable to hold much as it is shallow and pretty much useless – although it does feature a special vajazzle pouch inside. Also it’s made of a tough leather the colour of builders tea to match the carrier.

Mark Bentley adds:

Agree, it isn’t quite a Loughton or a Chigwell in terms of sheer baseless front, but somewhat more acceptable than the Radley Leyton, which is re-enforced with a paving slab and a shiny metallic finish to match the chain metal strap.
