Mackage outerwear has been a closet staple for us for years now, so we’re rather excited to hear that the label’s Montreal-based designers, Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan, are applying their design chops to a new offering: handbags.
The inaugural collection includes 12 covetable clutches and tote bags done in snake and pebble-embossed leathers. “We strived to mirror the mixed-media elements that we have come to be known for in our coats,” Elfassy told WWD. One of the designs is the result of a collaboration with Megs Mahoney Dusil, cofounder and CEO of PurseBlog.com – someone who obviously knows a lot about handbags.
Priced from $225 to $600, the debut collection will be available by July 15 at select retailers, including mackage.com and shopbop.com. The images released so far look promising, and we can’t wait to check the bags out in person. Perhaps at Mackage’s runway show at Toronto Fashion Week next week? Here’s hoping.
