For fashion fans, it takes a lot of willpower to look past a brand new handbag label, especially when said label blends vintage and recycled materials with contemporary fabrics. Such is the case with Canadian accessories label Hoakon Loves Helga, which is designed by Andrea Strand. Hoakon Loves Helga’s handbag collection is built from 100% recycled materials such as vintage leather jackets. Each slouchy hobo bag is truly one-of-a-kind; repurposed textiles line the interior; the exterior is comprised of different colors, shapes, and pocket designs; and, each bag is given its own personal embellishment, such as an oversized bow, a flannel panel, or a patchwork design.
You can check out the entire collection at HoakonLovesHelga.com. Prices range from $35 for an embellished clutch to $135 for a pretty leather satchel.
