Mackage Debuts Handbag Collaboration with PurseBlog: A new innovative and practical winter accessory just launched in time for the holiday’s. The Canadian natives and childhood friends, Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan, spent their school days sketching designs and planning their future in fashion. After attending design school together, LaSalle College in Montreal, Eran and Elisa launched what would become one of the most prestigious outerwear brands in North America.
The brand name, also a part of the family tradition, was inspired by Eran’s niece’s mispronunciation of “maquillage”—the French word for makeup. The designers each infuse their personalities and unique vision into the design, resulting in a collection with great balance. The designers’ expertise of high quality leather is apparent in this new handbag, “Nomad.”
“We chose the name ‘Nomad’ because it’s a perfect travel companion. As someone who often finds herself in a new city, I realize how important it is to pack items that can transform as my day evolves,” says Mahoney Dusil. “Elisa, Eran and I designed the perfect accessory to accompany my readers and the Mackage consumer as they journey through their day.”
Having a great and functional bag should be an investment. These bags are crafted with the finest leather from Italy. As designers their message to the consumer is that you can have have both quality and functionality, and still have a strong artistic statement to compliment your outfit.
The soho boutique was rocking with amazing cocktails named with inspiration from the accessory line and tunes from Brendan Fallis! It was inspiring to see how both Elisa Dahan & Eran Elfassy have continued to strengthen there collection with the new addition of the Nomad hand bag. There leather handbags actually have a great price range from $ 300 -$700.
While speaking with designers on how they came up with the concept to launch an accessory that would fit well with their RTW line, they said “We wanted to make sure that our customer could easily, wear it cohesively with anything in our collection.” They did a great job of using quality finishes for the hardware. Every piece has this sense of craftsmanship and detail that is sure to take your Fall/Winter look from Day to Night.
