Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag review

mansur gavriel candy bag review and description

pictured: Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag /

Mansur Gavriel has come out with a structured hobo! As you know, the structured hobo is hotter than hot right now, and with polished leather, it’s even hotter. This classic hobo silhouette was popular in the late 1990s, and this year it really is the most important style in handbags. Love!

The new Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag is a beautiful version of the structured hobo. It is made with strong leather and fine craftsmanship; what we have grown to love about Mansur Gavriel. The Candy Bag by Mansur Gavriel is a medium sized hobo bag with one slit pocket on the inside. It is roomy enough for everyday essentials, as well as a couple extra items such as a mask and a pair of winter gloves.

Mansur Gavriel’s Candy Bag has debuted in five colors; classic black with flamma interior, sky, golden yellow, caramel (my choice), and claret. It’s a good combination of seasonal hues, and classic colors.

I am loving my Candy Bag because the size is ideal for everyday use, and the bag itself is lightweight. The Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag fits nicely on my arm and stays put; something you would not expect from shiny leather. Mansur Gavriel always puts thought into how a bag fits and feels while being carried; one of the many things I love about the brand.

Many polished leathers scratch easily. This bag does not. I am not sure how Mansur Gavriel was able to treat the leather to make it not scratch as easily as other polished leathers, but they did it! Love that! It will occasionally get fingerprints and smudges, but those wipe off easily with a soft cloth. I will admit, I wipe off smudges with the bottom of my shirt; works like a charm. haha

You can find the Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag online here. Which color is your favorite?

There are so many fabulous IT bags under $500 this summer 2021 season! It is so nice to know we don’t have to break the bank in order to afford a beautiful IT bag which will definitely turn heads this summer season. Love that!

This beautiful straw tote bag is priced just under $500, and it’s an IT bag which is hot this summer season, and has been hot for several years now; it may already qualify for classic IT bag status! It really is a great investment bag!

Also, as you already know, pouches are hotter than hot right now, and these two are priced nicely at under $500. I own the yellow one and love wearing it often. It fits everything I need it to fit while being comfortable to wear; plus it’s super soft. Love that!

Do you see that cute little tan hobo in the collage above? I am in love! This bag is on my wish list. I am in love with it’s east/west, slouchy silhouette, and it’s ’90’s era strap. Plus, the color is on point for the summer season, and early fall. Love!

I am lightening up for the summer 2021 season! For my summer 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe, I am using my basket bag as my carry-all for days when I need to carry a lot of things, as well as for beach days, or when I wear espadrilles. It looks fabulous with espadrilles.

In addition to my beloved basket bag, I am deep into the pouch trend this summer! I started last year with my large black pouch, then I picked up this cute little yellow pouch with a cross body strap for some variety. Then, I broke down and splurged on this dark brown pouch with a chunky chain. All three pouches work with different outfits and serve different style purposes, yet they are all functional and fun to wear. I love a soft pouch!

Of course, no summer 2021 handbag capsule wardrobe would be complete without the 2021 IT bag! My beloved Prada Cleo is a fabulous everyday hobo bag which is just large enough to fit my wallet, phone, keys, mask, hand sanitizer, and keys. It’s also lightweight and easy to wear over my shoulder. Love! You will see me in this bag a lot over the summer season!

As always, my handbag capsule wardrobe contains classic bags which can be worn throughout the year, regardless of seasons; with the exception of the basket bag which is a spring/summer bag. My basket bag is classic, thankfully, so it will be easy to pull out next spring and summer; and for many spring/summer seasons thereafter! Love investment bags!
