We first introduced you to the just-launched Mansur Gavriel Handbags in July, but the bad news back then was that there was barely an available purse to be found – the company’s first run had been snapped up already, more or less in its entirety. We had a light at the end of the tunnel, though, because we knew the brand had been picked up by Net-a-Porter for fall. Now, those bags have started to arrive!
It’s not difficult to see why the first run of Mansur Gavriel bags disappeared so quickly. The designs are sleek, modern and functional, and they all retail for less than $500. The exterior neutrals disguise interiors splashed in contrasting brights or pastels, and without a heavy lining, the bags are light, practical choices for women who want a design that straddles the divide between trendy minimalism and a classic look that won’t look dated any time soon.
Net-a-Porter doesn’t indicate where these bags were made, but since Mansur Gavriel was planning to move its production from China to Italy for fall, it’s likely these bags are from that new run of bags made in Europe. For some of you, I’m sure that’ll be welcome news. You can shop a limited selection of Mansur Gavriel bags via Net-a-Porter now.
