Hayden-Harnett Junya Tambourine Bag
The Hayden-Harnett Fall/Winter 2009 Collection is here and it is now available for pre-order. According to the Hayden-Harnett website, this collection "verges on the mystical and the unsettling." These unique new designs were inspired by the cultural thinking and religious rituals of the so-called Cargo Cults of remote Pacific islands. The collection consists of dark neutrals and artisan-like details. Hayden-Harnett describes them as "dark, otherworldly, and quirky."
As I glanced over the various pieces that make up the Fall/Winter 2009 Collection, my eyes suddenly became drawn to one bag in particular. Meet the Hayden-Harnett Junya Tambourine Bag. As the name suggests, this cute little crossbody bag resembles a tambourine. The front side of the bag features a slit pocket adorned with totemic hardware and the sides of the bag are adorned with tiny tassels. This bag would be perfect for a fun night out. However, it is definitely meant for someone looking for something with just a touch of quirkiness. This truly is a special piece. So special, in fact, that Hayden-Harnett has dubbed it as part of their Collector's Edition. Now if only I could figure out where to get that necklace the model is wearing. It would make the perfect companion for this bag.
The Hayden-Harnett Junya Tambourine Bag measures 6" x 6" x 2" and it comes complete with a long, crossbody strap. It is currently available in Black/Grape and it retails for $238. Check it out at Hayden-Harnett.
P.S. (The Corinne Studded Leather Necklace can be found under the Accessories section. It retails for $148)

Re: Hayden-Harnett Junya Tambourine Bag
Just in case no one has taken an Anthropology class, cargo cults are tribal societies that take stuff from the cargo ships and planes of more "technologically advanced" societies because they believe that those things are gifts from their gods. I remember my anthropology professor telling the cutest story. Where these island villagers were overwhelmed by these invaders. They wanted desperately for them to leave their island, so they danced and performed rituals on the airplane runway that had been built. The people who built the runway told the villagers that they couldn't do that there, that they were going to get run over by an airplane. So the villagers went up into the mountains and they had fires lit for their dancing and rituals. Well, it was dark and a pilot mistook the little fires as the lights on the runway and he crashed into the mountain. Then the villagers had all this cool stuff that came from the cargo plane!
