MANICHEL X JUDITH VAN DEN HOEK
December 1, 2013
Wow! The event yesterday was a BIG, BIG success!! And I couldn't be more happy with all the super excited reactions we got.
A few months ago I was giving a lecture about my job in Den Bosch, The Netherlands. During this lecture I got to meet the great Anneke Michels from Manichel. Manichel? You may think. Probably you haven't heard of her (yet!). She locked herself up in her house for three years to come up with a great bag design. After the lecture she showed me her bags and we decided we should do a collaboration, as I am such a big fan of her bags. What I like about her bags is that it truly is a piece of art dangling around your arm. And you can customize it any way you like! And unfortunately I forgot to make pictures of the inside, but believe me. Once you open the bag, it's an explosion of colors! And also the inside can be customized any way you like.
More about the bag. Above you see the illustration I made for the bag. By the way, she has a few more other bag designs, but I decided to go with this one. The bag is made from white leather and the illustration I made for the bag is embroidered. We kept the inside very simple and elegant with the color deep dark red.
I had the chance to walk with this bag on the street a couple of days and to wear it with me to events and it is truly an eyecatcher. During Viva 400 many people asked me if they could take pictures of this bag. Which is of course awesome!
So, yesterday we had the launch of our collaboration together. And it was a BIG success! We got amazing reactions! And you know what? We sold our bag!!!! :D
Let me know what you think about this bag.
This collaboration was so much fun to work on and we decided to work together a little more.
If someone wants to have this bag design but with a whole other illustration, like a portrait or something else, this is possible. Just please let us know and drop us an e-mail.
Have a great Sunday!

These illustrations I made for Paul Mitchell and are featured in Heat Magazine. Very proud! :) Also, funny fact. The week I got asked for this I just watched the movie don't mess with the Zohan. Very funny when Zohan decides he wants to become the most famous hairdresser in the world and wants to start at Paul Mitchell New York. Well, you just have to watch the movie.
So, anyway, yesterday I had the Viva 400 event. Unfortunately, I got home without an award. But! No worries, because I'm now jumping on the train to Amsterdam for a very special project :) Can't tell you more yet, but I'm really excited about this one ;-)
