White Looks Right

467153_in_xl

I love white year round, and this fall a white bag looks right.  I’ve been eyeing a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag for some time and would pair it with all the grey and mélange knits. Très chic.

  • I have never been the biggest fan of white bags but these Mansur Gavriel are everywhere and for good reason ! They are exquisite and very chic, while remaining (still) under the radar !

  • Yes! I like a white or ivory bag with an all-black outfit. .. sharpens it up.

  • Beautiful and yet very cool! Love it but I am hesitant to buy it for myself – maybe I am too practical – can I keep it white after a few outings? Anyway I love it!

  • The black Mansur Gavriel bags seem to show wear easily – suspect a white one would look worn very quickly.

  • White bags, shoes and eyeglasses all look fresh right now. For practical reason, I probably would not get a white bag. But definitely white pumps or sandals…

  • I agree. The white bag is great. I was interested in the white tote for winter. However, my black mansur tote was only carried once, I am not hard on handbags and it already has many marks. I may rethink my white tote.

  • I too have to say that despite the popularity of Mansur Gavriel, the bags (at least the bucket I bought and promptly sent back) are not great quality–very flimsy and cheap looking in person. I know they’ve had some quality control issues, perhaps they couldn’t keep up with the demand.

  • I have a white leather handbag by Kendall Conrad that I will definitely carry into fall.
