Great news for those trying to track down a coveted Mansur Gavriel bag: The minimalist accessories line with the feverish following has launched e-commerce, live today. The brand debuted last summer with a tightly edited collection of bucket and tote styles, plus a few small leather goods, and proceeded to sell out at retailers including Steven Alan and Net-a-Porter in record time. Mansur Gavriel had pretty much become synonymous with "wait list," until today. (Case in point: The bucket bag, which retails for $495, is jacked up to $1,250 in this eBay listing.)
Totes, bucket bags, and backpacks are available in two sizes each, with colors from basic black and classic brandy to royal blue and a hot red aptly named "Flamma." No word on how much stock they have, so you might want to add to cart sooner than later.
