The time to set aside a special shopping fund is now, and you need to dedicate the whole thing to Mansur Gavriel. The brand's founders Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel told ELLE UK yesterday that they will add womenswear to their extensive range of leather bags and shoes, but have not yet announced a date.

"From the beginning when we first started, we kind of had an idea to do a full brand with a full range of products and then we ended up starting with the bags and later doing the shoes," Rachel said. "Because we grew so quickly we spent the past three years working on building a strategy to strengthen the company. But now for the first time, we're really ready to branch out into other categories. So we're in development for ready to wear."

They two aren't giving anything away regarding how the clothes will look, but hinted that the collection will carry the same colour-centric appeal their accessories are known and loved for. "It's about the seemingly simple things," Floriana added. If their sell-out bucket bags are any indication, you'd also probably have to wait ages for restocks on the clothes too.
