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!











Jacket- John Galliano jacket from The Room at The Bay in Toronto
Dress- Green Zambesi dress from Holt Renfrew in Toronto
Pants- Leather H&M pants from H&M store in Toronto
Bag- Larissa Hadjio gold Tonie clutch bag from Larissa Hadijo online store
Belt- Vintage belt (no label) from St. Lawrence Flea Market in Toronto
Scarf on head- BonTon scarf from Advice From A Caterpillar Store in Toronto
Straps on Boots- Vintage boot concho chain straps from Ebay
Shoes- Vintage cowboy boots from Urban Outfitters in L.A

The Look: Larissa Hadjio Collaboration Day 1

Fun Fact: I'm wearing the Larissa Hadjio Tonie Clutch in gold and love how it looks so much like a shrimp! It's eye is a brass snap, how clever! The Tonie also comes in pink and black and is soooo much fun to wear! To buy, click here! Pin It Now!

I love it how you girls always pick out the most interesting fashion items. and i love it even more that this is a way to discover new designers. This girl is edgy and peculiar, but what oh the accessories, statement pieces in my opinion. it makes your look so interesting and you are looking again and asking yourself 'was that a bag?'. first of all i love your jacket, it is like pretty classic but the details are not and that is so fabulous, love love the shoulders. love the belt, just perfect. the green looks amazing and i am a big fan of skirt/dresses combined with pants. the leather of that clutch is just magnificent, the color looks amazing with everything. I still have to get used to the undersea creatures, so i can't wait for the rest...
