Samantha- Larissa Hadjio Collaboration- Day 1

Larissa Hadjio makes the coolest underwater hand crafted creatures from the sea! We are soooo obsessed with her collection and so excited about our collaboration this week! In Larissa’s own words, "It’s about wearing something that fits your character, rather than buying a bag that already speaks for itself". We couldn't agree more. She has created  a truly magical set of expertly crafted handbags. Larissa's six underwater creatures are constructed in leather with a 3D pattern making technique which is almost like reverse origami to create the shapes and personality of each underwater creature. She studied at Central Saint Martins and is a London based designer. Her bags are limited edition and super special because this is her debut collection. We are sooo excited to be wearing her bags all week! Watch her amazing video, "it's a whisper from unchartered depths." To check out her online store click here!
