We are completely obsessed with relative newcomer MANSUR GAVRIEL. The accessories collection launched in 2012 by Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel consists of vegetable tanned leather bags. Anyone who follows street fashion will have seen the ubiquitous bucket bag on the arm of tons of editors, stylists and fashion insiders at the recent collections. The bags are so perfectly chic and understated and just the right size to store all your everyday essentials . As of now they come in a natural, cognac and black with bright unexpected linings like bright red or ballet pink. Though new colors are coming for spring. We were all dying over the super chic white bucket bag that was recently featured on Kirna Zabete’s Instagram feed. Only bad news is the bags are in such high demand that they are consistently sold out, but good news is they carry them at Steven Alan so get over there quickly to put your name on the wait list . http://mansurgavriel.com
I can never seem to have enough clutches. They add a statement to any outfit. After watching the Oscars I realized that my collection could use the addition of a perfect evening bag. Something that pops but could work dressed up or down. Here are some top contenders.
