Designed (as its name suggests) to evoke a flower blossom, this oblong pouch cinches closed at the top with a hand-tied leather drawstring. The shape is soft and slouchy, thanks to the smooth, supple lambskin leather. The interior—done in a cherry red lambskin—has a slip pocket to keep cards and keys neatly corralled. And it comes with a detachable strap, so you can carry it as a clutch or sling it over your shoulder.
They’re the duo behind the now-iconic drawstring bucket bag. And Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel’s story is one of those overnight-successes that’ll make anyone’s ears perk up: Girl meets girl at XX concert in LA. Both are, respectively, design- and art-school grads that share a common contemporary aesthetic. Both see void in the market for luxury bags at a less-than-a-monthly-mortgage price. And in 2012, voilà: Mansur Gavriel was born. Here’s the rundown: no overt branding or extra frills, just clean, sophisticated—and yet no less practical—Italian-made bags designed with the minimalist in mind.
