Fashion, and particularly the handbag sector, is a tough industry for a startup, which makes Mansur Gavriel’s storied success all the more admirable. At the time of its launch, Mansur Gavriel’s only employees were its two founders, working out of an apartment in NYC. In less than 10 years, the brand has been able to do what few brands can: leveraging the massive, cult-y success of a single silhouette to create a global powerhouse spanning multiple categories.
All the while the brand has stayed true to its core values, offering quality bags that will remain timeless without skimping on style or function. Now, on the heels of its latest simple beauty, the brand has expanded on its fall silhouette, introducing a new soft version, just in time for spring. Introducing, the Soft Zip Multitude Tote.
Designed with function in mind, the Soft Zip Multitude Tote is available in two sizes, with the larger version being spacious enough to carry your daily essentials plus a 15-inch laptop! The mini also offers a spacious interior while functioning as the perfect everyday bag. It can hold a Kindle or iPad mini, along with everything else you may carry day to day.
Overall the silhouette is clean and classic, designed to look refined while remaining durable and versatile. The Soft Zip Multitude is a modern take on a classic, timeless tote shape, designed from four hand-stitched panels. It’s crafted from Mansur Gavriel’s iconic tumbled Italian calfskin, which is a soft, textured, leather with a supple hand. This type of leather is known for its durability and longevity, making it the perfect option for an everyday bag. Additionally, Mansur Gavriel’s rich leathers pick up color beautifully, and though the bag is available in neutrals, its blue and orange versions are the ones to snag this spring.
If a spacious, organized interior is your thing, Mansur Gavriel has got you covered with this new release. Both sizes feature a main interior zipped compartment for ease of use on the go as well an interior zippered compartment. While the larger version will offer more internal organization with 2 additional slit pockets, the mini is more versatile in that it can be worn with the removable crossbody strap.
A timeless, sleek shape that both looks, and feels (the interior is lined in suede!) luxurious, the Soft Zip Multitude is the perfect spring bag at a price point that won’t break the bank. The mini is $695 via Mansur Gavriel while the larger size will set you back $850.
