Splurge vs. Save: Fashion’s new “It” bag is a bucket!

Amongst the fashion pack a new handbag is dubbed the “it” bag of the season.  Generally these highly sought after beauties are overnight sensations that pack a punch with a multi-thousand dollar retail.  This past fashion month the style elite must have taken myself and the rest of the 99.9% of the faithful who worship at fashion’s altar into consideration because not only is the new “it” handbag only $495 dollars it’s from a relative unknown.

Founded in 2012, by Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel the New York-based brand, Mansur Gavriel is making waves as fashion’s new darling.  The brand creates simple, functional, leather bags in three silhouettes—a tote, a pouch, and a bucket style.  Each bag is made in Italy with Tuscan leather with no conspicuous branding which is a save for a discrete gold-embossed label.  The duo do offer an option to give some personality to your handbag by offering the ability to customize the lining with fun, bright colors.  The bucket has been crowned fashion’s most covetable bag due to it being sold out everywhere and is being carried by the likes of Eva Chen, Miranda Kerr, Garance Dore to name a few.

So what do you think, Splurge vs. Save?
