If you need one accessory this season, it’s a coloured leather bag. Pick the candy-inspired Karla style shoulder bag from Finnish brand Marimekko for a modern Nordic twist and you are good the go.
We love the unique style of this bag – Karla is a modern twist on a classic sweet. The premium leather bag was inspired by the eye-catching form of a candy wrapper and transformed into a collector’s item by designer Anna Werner.
The bag has a zipper closure and an adjustable, solid-coloured strap making it perfect for throwing over your shoulder this summer. Vibrant colour pops are the keys to lifting any outfit, so be bold and find the right coloured bag for you below. A great accessory that will compliment your outfit.
For another fun and eye-catching option, the Pikku Karla version of this shoulder bag is made of printed leather in the bold Suvikimppu pattern.
The buoyant Suvikimppu (summer bouquet) print presents a beautiful explosion of summer flowers. Renowned for her floral designs, Lotta Maija sketched this small-scaled pattern by hand using gouache paints and it looks stunning on the Karla bag don’t you think?
Are all these options a bit too bold for you, simply go for the classic black version of the Karla bag for a more minimal and simple look.
Which one is your favourite?
