Trusting the September issues, bags will be overwhelmingly ladylike come Autumn. Think clutch, not carpet bag: the appeal of orderly shape and structure has seen fashion renew its vowels with geometric shapes.
Tapping the trend the considerate way is Marvais, a one year old bag brand from Belgium. The brainchild of lifelong friends Marie Libeert and Valérie Vanermen, Marvais grew out of their mutual taste and passion for creating. Juxtaposing premium materials, iconic shapes and considered colour hues, the label hopes to bring high quality accessory accents to a vast array of women’s wardrobes.
The AW17 outing is made up of four boxy styles crafted from matte vegetable tanned leathers with an impressive emphasis on construction. Though the trending top handles are there, Marvais’ offering is centred around the more practical cross-body. Infused with impeccable autumnal shades, these sharp structured bags make out perfect partners for earth-toned sustainable knits.
