It’s kind of like when Rihanna announced she was going to design shoes, when SJP announced she would design a line of LBDs, and when Beyoncé announced her upcoming sportswear collection. It’s that feeling you get when something so good gets even better. Like stuffed crust pizza or rosé-infused gummy bears. It’s that moment your mind is blown because you didn’t think your favorite thing in the whole world could become any more incredible. At least that’s the rush of anticipation and euphoria that washed over us the moment we found out Mansur Gavriel, beloved handbag designer, would soon introduce a clothing line.
Mansur Gavriel’s foray into women’s fashion fulfills a desire to “create a full world for our consumers,” and the design team duo says they “are thrilled to grow our product offering to include ready-to-wear.” Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel are scheduled to debut their first ready-to-wear line this September. Contrary to traditional fashion week procedure, the show will feature Fall/Winter 2017 pieces, which can be purchased (and worn!) immediately. If the brand’s clothes are as exquisitely designed and simply and functionally understated as its accessories have come to be loved for being, then we are in for a treat! Prepare for this epic launch, and get ahead of the inevitable shopping rush, by perusing the label’s iconic bucket bags on eBay, which are more affordable now than ever before.
