Mansur Gavriel’s story is no secret, and if the brand has done one thing incredibly well, its storied success aside, it is consistency. At the very core of the brand comes a love for simple silhouettes that ate expertly crafted of the finest materials, all available to the consumer at an accessible price. Over the years, the brand has honed in on its craft, further developing its core DNA and leveraging the massive cult-like success that came with the launch of its iconic Bucket bag.
Now, Mansur Gavriel is more than a tiny handbag brand that’s run out of an NYC apartment; in just about 10 years, the brand has become a global powerhouse. Known for its simple shapes and clean-lined silhouettes, there is no better time to be a handbag brand like Mansur Gavriel than right now. Though the early 2000s logo love and Y2K bags are booming once again, so is the want for simple styles and fun mini bags in bright, bold colors.
For fall 2021, Mansur Gavriel is indulging us once again with the launch of its new bag: the Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag. Featuring a sturdy exterior and a yummy, glossy finish, the Candy bag is reminiscent of the bags you’d see under the arms of models and actresses in the late 90s. It’s perfect for the times and is available in a handful of colors, including beautiful, bold hues like blue, red, and yellow, to indulge your fun side, all without breaking the bank.

The candy bag is an ideal grab-and-go style, perfect for slipping over your shoulder, and large enough to fit your essentials.

It has a smooth finish and unique shine, picking up color incredibly well, and it is known to be pretty durable.
A simple silhouette that is also simple and extremely wearable, the Candy Bag is sure to be the brand’s next hit.
