Mata Hari‘s highly anticipated F/W 2010 collection has finally arrived at Karmaloop! Aside from really unique designs rooted in high fashion, street culture, and pop art, this collection was inspired by a pretty dope concept — Mata Hari asked a handful of the most sought-after stylists on the international entertainment and editorial scene to design a bag centered on their individual style mantras. Then they named each creation after the stylist who designed it. The end result is a pretty diverse collaboration between function and design… there is a little something in here for everyone! A punchy pop art purse from Japanese stylist Shino fits the fun, carefree girl while maybe the Kemal + Karla works for the downtown chic personality who wants something relaxed yet totally on trend. The Sima, probably my favorite from the collection, is an oversized envelope clutch which boldly transitions from day-to-night with room for your makeup and jewels, plus it even fits a MacBook (!). Clockwise from top left: the Shino in Gold (also in pink and black & white), the Kemal + Karla, the Mariel (also in silver), the Sima, the Linda Lovemade with Pastel Color Blocking (more on that below!), and the Wen.
Here at Karmaloop we are particularly stoked for the Linda Lovemade collab bag, a total crowd pleaser with its bright color block hues and abstract heart silhouette. Personally I’m a sucker for crossbody bags, chain straps, and suede (what girl isn’t?)… For the back story on the other stylists and their creations, visit the Mata Hari site.
