BAGS OF STYLE: Mansur Gavriel is taking over a window at Colette during Paris Couture Week.
Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel, who recently picked up the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design at the CFDA Awards, have created an exclusive version of their best-selling bucket bag in metallic blue saffiano leather with a pony hair print. It will go on sale on July 6 for 635 euros, or $700 at current exchange.
The window display, which marks the brand’s first international collaboration, will be inaugurated with a cocktail event on July 6.
“Colette’s smart, unexpected edit and environment embodies a world that is very interesting to us as a brand,” Mansur and Gavriel said in a joint statement. Sarah Andelman, creative director and purchasing manager at Colette, in turn described the handbag label as “one of the greatest surprises we had these last years.”
