ALERT: Mansur Gavriel Price Increase

Well, this is disappointing. Mansur Gavriel, the fashion world's retail sensation, is restocking their online shop today and there are major markups on their bags that shoppers should be aware of. For starters, the brand's signature buckets have gone up $100 more (yes, that's two zeros) while mini-sized versions are now $35 more. In addition, large and small totes are also up $100 while backpacks have increased $50~$90 depending on the size. The increase might not seem like much on first inspection but the beauty of this wildly successful brand was that the company used to offer accessible price points--most of their well-structured handbags came in under the $500 mark--so a $35 to $100 hike is substantial to say the least. Seeing Mansur Gavriel quietly treading towards luxury market prices is unfortunate but, by the looks of things, I guess it's inevitable. What a bummer...

  1. I just bought the large argento bucket through Opening Ceremony. Came out to $810 including tax. Not cheap (though it is good looking)
