What began as a group of devoted fans has now turned into a verifiable cult, and I can’t say I’m surprised. Mansur Gavriel saw a void in the bag market that needed to be filled, and fill it they certainly did. Their bags might not seem cheap, but they are when you consider the average price of high-end bags. What’s more, their bags are made with the finest Italian vegetable-tanned leather—that is, natural, undyed, and sure to age like Michelle Pfeiffer. Typically their bags sell out within seconds, yet somehow this mini peony crossbody bag has not. Do with that what you will.
