Mansur Gavriel's designers Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel are in expansion mode. The duo behind the wildly successful line of minimalistic leather handbags just moved into a much larger, sun-drenched studio right below Canal Street in Soho, where they invited editors and buyers to come preview their fall collection on Tuesday. While we were greeted with racks upon racks of the bucket bags (in three sizes), and totes and backpacks we've come to know and love from the brand, there were also some new shapes and colorways that we're already starting to obsess over.
The first new item is the Lady Bag, which can be carried by a top handle or with strap. It has a drawstring closure, comes in two sizes and is as elegant as its name suggests. Then there's the Crossbody, a flap bag (that also comes in two sizes) with an adjustable strap and -- also new for the brand -- a canvas-lined interior, complete with zipper compartment. A handful of new colors have been introduced to the collection — forest green, peony pink and sand — as well as new materials: You'll be able to get their classic shapes in canvas and a super-soft, pebbled leather come fall.
We'll update with pricing info as soon as we have it, and you can see the full offering below.
