Mansur Gavriel bags landing in NZ

Mansur Gavriel bag
Every so often, for no glaringly obvious reason, the fashion world goes nuts over an It item, like Isabel Marant wedge sneakers or tiger-emblazoned Kenzo sweatshirts.

The latest overnight sensations come by way of New York, in the form of totes and bucket bags; although it’s easy to see why people are scrambling to get their hands on these.

Made from natural Italian leather, Mansur Gavriel handbags are simply cut, epitomising casual elegance at a price point lower than your average designer bag.

Created by friends Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel in 2012, their first range sold out worldwide, with lengthy waiting lists at stores like Barneys and Moda Operandi.

Luckily for us, Fabric will be receiving a small drop of the bags from August 14, including styles in the popular black/red colour combination, with another order scheduled for October.

Setting you back about $750, a Mansur Gavriel bag isn’t cheap; although if their reputation is anything to go by, they are worth every penny.
