@mansurgavriel was one of the original Instagram brands — a viral sensation that garnered hundreds of headlines and hundreds of thousands of people eager to purchase one of their signature drawstring bucket bags, which sold out minutes after each seasonal drop. (I saved up for months and months to buy one in 2015. When the day of the drop finally arrived and I found out I had a meeting right in the middle of it, I enlisted a coworker to vigorously refresh the website on my behalf). As a fan from the beginning, it’s been so much fun to watch the brand expand, first to shoes, then to ready-to-wear, all the while maintaining its sharp point of view (which I like to describe as “minimalism for maximalists”), no easy feat in an era where trends dictate the fate of many collections. Here’s a photo of two outfits I loved from the presentation this afternoon featuring the best ballet flats since sliced bread.
