If I had a handful of extra Benjamins lying around, I would happily throw them at a Mansur Gavriel leather bucket bag. In Cammello with Antico lining, please and thank you.
It was love at first sight when I spied this beauty on Pinterest a few months ago. It’s perfectly simple and elegant; one of those bags you can carry for decades that only gets better with age.
The women behind the up-and-coming brand, Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel, came together in 2012 to create a line of high quality, timeless bags for ‘real women’ at mid-range pricing. Their vegetable tanned leather creations are an investment, with prices ranging from $350-600, but they’re made to last with leather that patinas to well-worn perfection over time.
It’s pretty tough to get your hands on one — they’re selling out as soon as they hit retailers’ shelves and there are waiting lists involved — so I have plenty of time to sell some extra flowers to save up for it. ;-)
In the meantime, here are some great leather bucket bags you can add to your spring wardrobe right now!
