Feeling bored by endless amounts of It-bags to choose from these days? Recently, after seeing too many Boys, Balenciagas, and Birkins from Barney’s down to Chinatown, everything seemed to have lost its charm, and I lost track. I wondered if I ever would be excited by a purse again, and then I discovered Barcelona-based M2MALLETIER. Quite attractive and unassuming for an It bag, except for its stunning signature “needle” handle, inspired by medieval medical tools according to brand founders Marcela Velez and Melissa Losado (who met during their studies at Parsons). Minimalist and luxe are two of our favorite words, and the calfskin leather-lined purses (in 6 styles upon launching) are handcrafted as such; look for M2MALLETIER in the TL lexicon for a long time.
