I've always been fascinated by the style in New York. Even before I moved to the city, I always made a point of stalking what the stylish set was wearing and shopping. NYC girls are always first to test-drive the newest emerging trends, and the city is a breeding ground for fashion's latest It items. But as trendy as the style may be here, it's never not practical. So you can imagine that when I started seeing an It bag emerge as a favorite among my peers, I was all over it.
What's the next It bag that's winning over fashion people in New York? Meet Mansur Gavriel's Candy Bag. Launched amid New York Fashion Week's return to in-person shows last month, the bag could be seen on a number of editors and influencers running in between shows and appointments. I even got my hands on it, and I am pleased to share that it's quickly become my go-to. Not only does it fit all the essentials, but the patent finish makes it the perfect addition to any fall 'fit, and its midrange price tag makes it significantly more accessible than most designer It bags. As our senior editor Allyson Payer already noted, the Candy Bag is one we can see ourselves reaching for so often that we forget our other bags exist.
Without further ado, scroll down to see how fashion insiders are wearing the bag, shop the many colors it comes in, and see more mid-priced bags with It potential.
