Shop, Brands, Mansur Gavriel

Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel met in 2010 as art school grads (Rachel studied textiles at Rhode Island School of Design; Floriana, fashion and photography at University of the Arts Bremen, in Germany, whereshealso spent part of her childhood) at an XX concert in Los Angeles. They bonded over sharedaesthetic interests —Donald Judd, Keith Haring, old-Hollywood glamour— and decided to build a brand that expressed their visual universe. Ultimately, it was a fixation with vegetable-tanned leather that dictated the brand’s first products.

Their Instagram account is filled with pared-down, color-drenched images of flowers and Lucio Fontana artworks, as well as images of fans like Kirsten Dunst and Miranda Kerr sporting the brand’s wares, all tagged with the Mansur Gavriel mantra, #happygirlhappybag.
