Lady and the tramp

The new Mini Lady bag by Mansur Gavriel

It’s quite obvious who’s who in above image: I look like a bit of a tramp in my wool suit and well worn  boots by Acne Studios while the bag looks all immaculate and lady-like even though I’m swinging it like I’m auditioning for a part of the remake of “West Side Story”. But you can’t take a real lady out of a lady and this bag by New York brand Mansur Gavriel is just that, it’s even called Mini Lady.

I’ve of course been following the evolution of this small New York brand started by two friends a couple of years back and I always liked the story of their bags that are made in Italy in small numbers and vegetable tanned. I just never wanted one of their bucket bags because plain everyone was going crazy about them. With the Lady it’s a different story, though. She’s not quite as hyped and looks like she’s made for me. She might even teach me how to carry myself like one after all.
