The new Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag, which came out this summer, is the newest IT bag from acclaimed handbag brand Mansur Gavriel. There are so many wonderful traits in the Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag, it is hard to know where to start!
Let’s start with the color combinations. Like Mansur Gavriel’s famous drawstring bucket bag, the Lady Bag, in both the small and large sizes, offers bi-color styling. The Lady Bag features the same contrasting interior/exterior that Mansur Gavriel fans have grown to love from both the totes, and the drawstring bags. This automatically sets the Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag apart from the competition. Love that!
The Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag has more to covet when it comes to style besides the bi-color styling. The handbag offers a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap which allows you the versatility to carry the Lady Bag by the top handle, or over the shoulder, or cross body. How fabulous is that?!
In addition to practicality, and style, the single top handle lady bag is one of the hottest emerging trends in handbags we move into 2016. While the bucket bag, and the 70’s style saddle bag, have been enjoying thier moment in the IT bag spotlight, the single top handle satchel is positioned to take over the IT bag title as 2016 progresses. This makes the Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag a great investment for now, and into the next few years.
Make no mistake, the Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag is not just an emerging trend. The single top handle satchel, also called a “Lady Bag,” is a classic handbag style. Whether it is on the IT list, or not, the lady bag can be carried year after year, and passed down to future generations. Just look at the famous Hermes Kelly for lady bag history and reference!
The Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag comes in two sizes; small and large. The large size is ideal for the office, and can fit a small laptop. I chose to purchase the small Lady Bag since I don’t need room in my bag for a laptop. I find the small lady bag to be quite roomy, and practical!
The interior has a drawstring, so I can open or close up the bag according to how much I am carrying. This gives the bag a little bit more versatility when it comes to adjustments. I can carry around a sunglasses case, a novel, three iPads to keep my kids busy at a restaurant, a scarf; you name it! It holds as much as the large bucket bag, which is perfect for a busy mom like me!
I might bring this bag to New York in February to act as my fashion week workhorse. It can definitely fit everything I will need; DSLR camera, scarf, beanie, gloves, pen, and paper.
I am in love with my Mansur Gavriel Lady Bag, and cannot wait to wear it for many years. Mansur Gavriel handbags are high quality, and the construction is hearty. I can fill any Mansur Gavriel handbag, including the lady bag, with heavy items and not have to worry about the straps breaking, or any fraying. These are definitely workhorse bags! Love!
