“Look how beautiful they are together,” said Marcela Velez, holding a deep blue handbag against other jewel-toned bags from M2Malletier’s latest collection. And she’s right. There’s something enchanting about this season’s range of architectural handbags, which range from an opulent velvet to a sumptuous shearling that falls in line with Fall 2017’s cool-girl glamour aesthetic.
But just when we thought introducing rich textures was noteworthy enough, Velez and design partner Melissa Losada unveiled two new styles: the Mini Bucket and the Sophia, a shoulder bag. Soft, spacious, and more accessible in price point than, say, the brand’s signature La Fleur Du Mal clutch, these two bags are intended to be your day-to-day go-tos.
