Mansur Gavriel
A lady's bag

Monday, June 20, 2016
Since it’s launch for Fall/Winter 2015/16, the Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag has proven to be an instant hit, comparable to its line of bucket bags. Set to be a classic if it is not already one, the Lady Bag has an instantly recognisable shape that is simple, understated, and stylish.
True to Mansur Gavriel’s penchant for churning out signatures, the Lady Bag is now an icon in the Mansur Gavriel repertoire as well as the handbag world.
The Lady Bag is meant to be an everyday accompaniment. Use the Lady Bag as a discreet work handbag, an effortless tote or an over-the-shoulder bag.

Softly structured and incredibly light, the Lady Bag holds its shape well and is sufficiently spacious for all your essentials and then some. Carry the Lady Bag as often as possible, allowing the leather to soften over time and develop into a beautiful patina, especially with the cammello and brandy colours.
The Lady Bag has a very functional single top handle that can act as a wrist strap, shoulder strap or simply as a handle to hold or carry on the crook of your arm. Attach the adjustable shoulder strap on off-duty days and a lady has basically all she can ask for in a practical handbag.

Just like the bucket bag will always be an essential bag shape, a lady has got to have her lady bag.

Mixed Materials
Contrasting textures for a style switch-up

Monday, June 13, 2016
Switch up your style with mixed materials from the likes of Sonia Rykiel, Victoria Beckham, Aquazzura, Frame Denim, and Mansur Gavriel. We promise you won't be disappointed!
With intricately woven leather top handles and multi-coloured python leather panels, the Sonia Rykiel python bucket bag is truly a work of art. Fit for a true bohemian queen or for women who just simply want something different, this bucket bag will stand out no matter what outfit you pair it with. It’s a big deal.
Nothing screams luxury quite like a croc leather handbag, even if it’s an embossed one. When done right like Victoria Beckham has done here, the effect is luxurious. In black with subtle gold hardware accents, the Victoria Beckham Qunicy is a bag made right for the office or a stylish off-duty look.
Suede and knit collide in a charming fashion via Sonia Rykiel and Aquazzura that is both understated and classy. The key here is to keep the colour palette minimal while letting the textures of this look do all the talking. Keep warm in a knitted number indoors while brave the strut in comfy suede on the streets.
Don’t the cream and sweet cammello colours of this Mansur Gavriel small tote make you want to go on a weekend retreat pronto?  Spacious and sturdy, this tote is pretty much the perfect size for all your essentials and then some. Pair it with denim from Frame Denim for the best effect. If this isn’t already your go-to tote bag for the weekend, you best get your game on.

Knowing your Mansur Gavriel
Get to know their quality Italian leather types

Friday, June 10, 2016
With Mansur Gavriel being all the rage and with new styles and leather types added for the new season, we had to give you a preview of what to expect. Aside from Mansur Gavriel's signature vegetable tanned leather and calf leather, patent leather and suede leather will make an appearance for Fall 2016. Do also check out their extended range of tumbled leather options too, another style that debuted earlier this year.

As the name suggests, calf leather is made from the hide of a calf. This leather type will age gracefully and will retain its shade long after it is first produced and is desired mostly for its softness and an almost flawless grain. A Mansur Gavriel calf leather bag is finished with the same colour on both the outside and the inside, which features a lovely matte finish.

Effectively waterproof, patent leather has a glossy and reflective surface that is as easy to clean, as it is to wear. Patent leather is also incredibly light and has a very consistent colour throughout. New for Fall 2016, patent leather will make its first appearance in Mansur Gavriel’s line-up of covetable bags. Be sure to also check out the debut of the Sun and Elegant bags too.

Suede leather is produced by buffing the hide, which causes fibres to be raised until the leather is relatively smooth to the touch. The result is a velvety fabric that is softer and more malleable than full-grain leather. For Fall 2016, Mansur Gavriel will introduce suede leather to its existing line of iconic bags like the bucket bag and lady bag, which will feature the same interior and exterior textures.

A Mansur Gavriel tumbled leather bag is extremely soft and supple. Made by using tiny pebbles that gently massage the leather, the bag has a beautiful texture on the outside with a raw suede interior. With a very subtle sheen that is pristine yet classy, tumbled leather also easily withstands prolonged usage and is suitable for both day and night outfits.

Vegetable tanning is an artisanal leather tanning process that involves treating the leather with natural tannic acids that are found in plants. A time-consuming but very natural process, the leather produced is highly durable and more organic due to nature taking its own course. And with the Mansur Gavriel brandy and cammello options, prolonged use will give rise to a sweet caramelisation of the colours.

Victoria Victoria Beckham
Preview the Pre-fall 2016 collection

Thursday, June 2, 2016
Pre-fall 2016 is upon us and Victoria Beckham has something whimsy up her sleeve – quite literally. Her latest offering from Victoria Victoria Beckham – her accompanying sister line that we have grown to love – follows through from her previous collections, where sleeves were pretty much a talking point throughout.
Her most eye-catching sleeves were cut loosely and short, a style that provides flattering coverage with an added twist. And when the sleeves were cut long, they were sometimes given the ruffle treatment – a common recurrence in the Victoria Victoria Beckham Pre-fall 2016 collection as well as in this year’s collections.
Victoria Victoria Beckham has always had a broad appeal since its incarnation. For Victoria Beckham, this means bringing back the patchwork denim that was previously seen in her then Victoria Beckham Denim line, a line that is now fused with Victoria Victoria Beckham. This time, it was reworked geometrically in a variety of different washes; mono-colour at the back and a splatter of patches on the front. It was quite on point, we must say.
Besides the aforementioned city-ease styles, there was also a healthy dose of whimsy fun in the form of cocktail and fruity prints. “We had lots of fun with it,” said Victoria Beckham. She made sure to include those in light-hearted silhouettes for an easy-to-wear look, an aesthetic that is synonymous with Victoria Victoria Beckham.
Beneath the fun, there were some workwear elements as well. For instance, a classic pale pink shirt with a bow detail and a long-line wiggle trim blouse that can be worn with a pencil skirt or tucked out during off-duty days. And if outwear is what you’re going for, oversize is the way to go this season. “It’s about getting the balance of the fun and making it wearable as well,” Victoria Beckham said.
The Victoria Victoria Beckham take on this season’s maximalism trend was astute. A fine balance for both the fashion-forward and women who just want a little something extra during the work week. And we are sure there is something for you as well.
