The recent presentation of Mansur Gavriel looks like from a Wes Anderson movie. The colors, the scenery, simply everything. Perhaps you know the New York City based label Mansur Gavriel for their famous bags. Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel founded the brand in 2012. Their products are inspired by the contrast of warm natural textures and the clear, clean intensity of pop colors. All of their leather goods are made with the highest quality Italian leather and age old craftsmanship in the Veneto region of Italy.
For the Autumn Winter collection 2016/17 they came up with a shoe collection as well and I’m pretty sure people will love these as much as their bags.
“We both like things that are minimal, but also like warmth. We’d describe our aesthetic as playing with symbiotic contrasts; things that work well together, like clean lines and pure colour. We like a warmth of material even if the lines are simple. We found a really fine, very elevated vegetable-tanned leather at a factory in Italy, which we felt wasn’t being used properly in the fashion industry at that time, and that was the starting point. The shoes dovetail with the bags in that they’re also sculptural objects in classic silhouettes, which allow us to experiment with colour and fabrication.” – Rachel Mansur
