The "This Is Andy" collection is a collaboration between Karen Bystedt and Nabil Hayari. They met during a charity gala in Monaco.
Nabil Hayari presented a parade that evening to showcase his collection. Karen immediately fell in love with the Hayari Paris dresses. Karen felt that she had to combine her art with that of sewing. She asked Nabil Hayari to create the first pink silk dress, worn at the biggest events in New York or Los Angeles.
From this friendship was born a closer collaboration when Nabil Hayari proposed to create a Couture dress from the works of Karen. Thus was born the famous dress "Andy Money" which was immediately a huge success, in the effigy of his photographs of Andy Warhol. Karen always has the will to combine art and fashion. The success comes from the combination of the elegance of Hayari Paris and the rock wink brought by Karen.
The “This is Andy” collection is made up of three bags for women or for men of different sizes and the theme is an artistic variation of Andy's visuals.
It is possible to carry the bag in the hand or on the back, with a side zip to be able to take your computer more easily, modern and practical. The bag has interior pockets with zip for better security. It is 100% genuine leather and thick for a good hold of the bag.
The collaboration takes the face of three variations of leather goods, in the form of unisex bags, with the idea of the “This is Andy” Collection.
The original art designs for these bags are the work of Hayari and Karen Bystedt and Peter Tunney for the black skull bag. These are three trendy leather bags, made by the greatest Italian artisans with three complementary faces.
The collection comes in three different colors and sizes:
PINK : 33.5x35.5x10 cm
BLACK : 35x39x10 cm
WHITE : 31x34x10
