Why Girls Love Rebecca Minkoff

I remember the day I discovered Rebecca Minkoff and the MAB. It was a hot, sticky, summer day, and I was aimlessly floating about Bendels, happy to be in the AC. Of course, I found myself in the handbag room. Like a magnet, I was drawn to a display of gorgeous leather bags. The sales woman informed me that these bags had just arrived, and were from a brand new New York designer, Rebecca Minkoff.

Maybe it was the fact that she was a New York based designer (we always love the hometown hero), or maybe it was the simplicity of the bag, the richness of the colors, or the humorous name, but I instantly fell in love with Rebecca Minkoff and the morning after bag. The leather was supple, the hardware shiny… And my favorite part, it was a bag I could guarantee no one on my college campus would own (people at my school just don’t care about fashion).

I was sold. My MAB has been with me on many adventures, both good and bad, but my MAB has become a part of me. If I show up at Sunday brunch with a different handbag, my friends are immediately thrown, and ask where Rebecca is. A handbag, more than any other accessory is deeply personal. It sees everything that you put in it, the little bits and pieces that make up your life. So naturally, I feel a somewhat personal connection to Rebecca Minkoff and her deeply fabulous handbags. Lately, her bags have gone from indie to mainstream, and I could not be happier 🙂 After all, everyone should experience the best morning after in the world!
