Celeb-favorite Mackage is venturing into handbag business with its first collection of the sort which brings several covetable alternatives into the spotlight. Designers Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan are turning their attention towards the accessories sector after many fabulous coats which have made style icons like Halle Berry, Blake Lively and Gwyneth Paltrow fall in love since the early 2000s. The first Mackage handbag collection will feature 12 covetable handbag designs which will feature the Canadian’s brand signature leather detailing and will reflect a modern perspective with plenty of timeless details which will definitely fashionistas fall in love.
Sticking with what the label has become well known for is certainly a smart strategy which was reveled by designer Eran Elfassy who told WWD.com: “We strived to mirror the mixed-media elements that we have come to be known for in our coats.” Taking a simple glance at the new Mackage bags we can immediately see that the new alternatives have a great potential to match the success of the already popular coats.
The Mackage handbags have a strong versatile component given both by the perfectly defined shapes and by the careful chosen color palette which stays mostly on the neutral side with a few bold color accents for added visual impact. Exotic skin textures, used in moderation in addition to gorgeous metallic details are two simple yet extremely effective ways to transform the designs into covetable signature pieces and the new Mackage handbags for fall 2013 can definitely fit the role.
In addition to the alternatives already presented, the label will also bring a style created in collaboration with Megs Mahoney Dusil, the cofounder of PurseBlog. The new line looks promising already, especially since many handbags can be adapted to many needs featuring both handles and cross-body straps. The first Mackage bags will have a price range between $225 and $600 and will be available starting with July 15 on the brand’s website. We cannot wait to see what other handbags besides Pozy, Carrita, Bookie and Rubie will be tempting us in the upcoming months.
