How cute is this new little bag from Mansur Gavriel! When it launched last month, I instantly fell in love. The only decision I needed to make was which color to invest in! Although the Mansur Gavriel Pencil Bag comes in a variety of beautiful hues, the classic and neutral Creme color caught my eye.
I own a lot of black bags, so I decided to lighten up my neutral bag collection and go with this Creme hue. While it looked like ivory on my computer screen, it’s actually more of an egg color. It’s as if someone took ivory and added one drop of pale yellow to it. That is how I would describe Mansur Gavriel’s Creme in person.
This is a great color for the Pencil Bag since it plays well with seasonal colored shoes, bright prints, and any color combo ensemble. A crème bag will be easy to wear throughout the spring and summer seasons, as well as into the fall and winter seasons. Since crème isn’t a stark white, it will play well with autumn hues, and it can double as a winter white during the cold weather season. Love that!
What I like about the Mansur Gavriel Pencil Bag is that it is a dressy bag. This cute little shoulder bag has a shiny leather finish which is not quite patent, but definitely not matte. It is reminiscent of the shiny leather finishes we saw throughout the 1990s on handbags. The finish makes this bag a little bit dressier than a day bag; although it can easily be worn during the day to weddings, parties, luncheons, and any occasion where you are dressing up. Due to the finish, the Pencil Bag can be worn at night too. While it’s not black tie, this bag can be worn to the theater, dinner, parties, and more!
What fits inside the Mansur Gavriel Pencil Bag
The Mansur Gavriel Pencil Bag is small in size. I would even place it in the mini or nano category. It does not fit a full size wallet, so I switch to my small wallet when I wear it. Although it is quite small inside, I can still fit my iPhone, lipstick and keys in addition to my small wallet; this is all I really need. A small, travel size hand sanitizer will also fit inside.
One reason I love this bag for going to the theater, is the opera pocket! This is an easy way to store tickets as you head through the door of a theater. You can also use it to store receipts, or anything flat you need instant access to. The opera pocket is neatly sewn onto the back of the bag.
Well, that’s it! If you are looking for a classic, dressy bag with a vintage vibe, the Mansur Gavriel Pencil Bag is it! The silhouette offers a 1950s/1960s look while the leather finish reminds us all of the 1990s. Love that mix of style!
