Amid the crush of LVs, Chanels, Guccis and Ferragamos found on the arms of starlets everywhere is a bold newcomer on the scene. Modish mavens are clutching M2Malletier handbags, making them one of the hottest new accessories that have swiftly vaulted from near anonymity to celeb status.
Sleek meets street in these satchels, which are instantly recognizable for their architectural quality and geometric lines, not to mention the true hallmark of the label—its distinctive hardware. The shiny gold, silver or onyx bar handles on each design were originally inspired by medieval tools and armor.
The duo behind the wonder bags, Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez, envisioned a brand that preserved their Colombian roots, while infusing a sense of sophistication and spontaneity in the trend-forward designs.
With their classic yet avant-garde angles, it’s no wonder celebrities are swooping up multiple M2Malletiers, including the popular ‘La Fleur Du Mal’ model along with the ‘Fabricca,’ ‘Amor Fati’ and ‘La Collectioneuse.’ Luxe materials and progressive colours ranging from rich coral to royal purple and light avocado, along with timeless shades of black, camel, cream and dove-grey, also make a M2Malletier a must-have.
Emma Watson, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendes, Cate Blanchett, Solange Knowles, Kate Hudson and Taylor Swift are just a few of the bold names carrying the neat little purse that effortlessly transitions from edgy ensembles to girly, flirty looks and more formal entrances.
