Love eco-animal-friendly handbag brand Matt & Nat and looking to score a deal? Now is your chance. But you better rush on over to online sample sale site RueLaLa!
My favorite pick from the sale is the “Santogold”. I have an obsession with grey bags, and while gold hardware isn’t ideally the first accent choice that comes to mind, on this bag in particular it looks stunning and really pops.
Functionally the bag is amazing. It measures 15″ at widest point x 8.5″ high x 1″ deep, which is the perfect size for just the necessities – wallet, cell, touch-up makeup pouch and maybe even a camera. It comes with two straps, a handle with a 6″ drop and a shoulder strap with a 22″ drop. Both are detachable which is a huge plus in my book. It allows for this bag to be so versatile. Although in my opinion this bag looks best completely strap-less and worn as a clutch!
Every year it seems like we have a trend that comes out of no where. I remember scratching my head when I saw the whole neon trend but then I also remember drooling when I first took a glimpse of the stud trend. Trends come out constantly, they blow up and it seems they fizzle away after awhile.
Is it just me, or does it seem like “tie-dye” is trying to become a new trend? When I think of tie-dye the 70′s comes straight to my head. You know the whole rainbow tie-dye that was so tacky but yet so huge back then?
MATT & NATT have brought us the “Narita” Bag in tie-dye and I have to say, I kind of like it. I’m into the whole black, gray and white colors on a bag now because they compliment my wardrobe well, so in other words this bag would look amazing in my closet. Yes it’s tie-dye, but it’s tastefully done and doesn’t look too overbearing like the neon colors did in the 70′s. If this purse was made in the neon tie-dye colors I’d probably scream and would want to burn it.
Vegan handbag brand MATT & NAT has partnered up with Apple for a capsule collection of laptop bags!
MATT & NAT Founder and Creative Director Inder Bedi says, “From our point of view the APPLE culture is one that appealed to us in terms of their clean, simple and one may say humble aesthetic. We are minimalists at heart and were truly excited to work with a brand that embodies beauty in innovation! As we are still a small company, working with a company we admire that has such great recognition worldwide was very appealing for us to help get our message out.”
There are four bags in the collection, and each piece is made of the signature vegan leather and lined with faux suede material made from recycled plastic bottles.
Eco-friendly bags have been on the scene for awhile now and they keep getting better and better. Matt & Nat is known for designing bags that combine luxury, cutting-edge fashion and social responsibility. Not a bag combination? So when you are feeling a little guilty about your last purchase, perhaps Matt & Nat can ease your conscience!
Here’s an example of old meets new. If you look into the history of the handbag, you’ll discover that the first noted handbag-like accessories arrived in a pouch-like shape that usually dangled off the waist with an opened top fastened by drawstring pulls. Popular by both men and women, these cloth or leather goods were later adorned by gems, dyes and other colorful textiles. Today, the drawstring pouch bag is quite common, but it seems like this season it is more than ever. If you haven’t tried the crossbody bag look, do check out these styles by MbMJ, Temperley London, Jill Stuart, and Matt & Natt.
As a handbag enthusiast, I have never been too fond of faux leather handbags. In my opinion, nothing can beat a soft and buttery leather handbag. Whenever I choose to buy a new bag, I know that an investment in a good quality leather piece will last season after season. So why is it then that I cannot take my eyes off this faux leather bag? Meet the Matt & Nat Yacht Studded Bag! This lovely piece features a large flap closure that is adorned with dozens of assorted antiqued brass studs.
