Color — Caramel
In a delightful caramel hue, this glossy, brushed-calfskin bag has an elegant curved strap you can slip over your shoulder or swing by hand. And at over four inches deep and almost ten inches wide, it’s perfectly sized to fit all the essentials you never leave the house without—phone, cards, keys, goop lip balm. It’s a sleek and practical design you’ll be reaching for whether you’re headed to the market or Saturday night’s reservation.

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.
