A few days ago I promised to show you my new Mansur Gavriel bucket bag in black / ballerina. This bag is so pretty. The leather feels smooth, but also strong and it smells so good. I own the regular bucket bag and I am happy that the bag is so roomy. I can easily put a camera in it, and there’s still enough room for more stuff. Let me tell you some more facts about the two women who founded Mansur Gavriel in 2012.
“We met and two days later, we started to design” are the words you can read on the site of Rachel Mansur (from Berlin) and Floriana Gavriel (from L.A.). The style of the New York based label is minimal and elegant, but with a cool twist. The colour scheme reaches from warm, natural and muted colours to timeless black, mixed with cool pop-colours on the inside of the bags. During the production in Italy, the leather is vegetable tanned and manufactured through age-old craftmanship.
I saved my money and it’s totally worth it. This label has reached a unbelieveable status in such a short time. If you want to get your hands on a Mansur Gavriel bag, you have to be as fast as a cheetah and as sly as a fox. Many people are outraged about the limited restock of the bags and I can understand their disappointment. I was sitting almost a whole day in front of several devices and refreshed my browser to see if the bags have been restocked. It was crazy. It was exhausting. But it was worth it. Now I know that I’ll never make fun again of people who are camping in front of an apple store to get the newest products. I’ve experienced something similar.
