Savvy Bags on a Budget(Page 6)
Few brands create a buying frenzy like Mansur Gavriel does these days. The young brand’s minimal, sophisticated bags retail at contemporary prices and sell out almost immediately upon delivery, and until now, it’s been impossible to place a simple online pre-order for them like you can with bigger brands that retail at places like Neiman Marcus or Saks.
It’s nearly impossible to buy a $700+ Fendi Bag Bug and has been for months, so it was only a matter of time before other designers looking to get a piece of the irreverent-bag-charm pie. Up first is Brit Sophie Hulme, whose attainably priced, cleanly designed leather bags we already adore.
In the luxury industry, sales don’t usually launch in February; that’s when all the new spring stuff is just arriving! That’s why today’s one-day-only sale on Contemporary/CUSP at Neiman Marcus is so exciting. Contemporary clothes already have a great price point, and with the 40% off selection that Neiman Marcus has right now, a great look is even closer within reach.
I love buffalo plaid. It’s almost always red and black, which is my favorite color combination, and I’m already a pretty big appreciator of plaid, both on my person and on the persons of male-type people. Considering that, my affection for the Jack Spade Dipped Buffalo Check Utility Tote isn’t exactly shocking.
