My Refinery29 feature (more to come on that later) was posted almost two weeks ago and I’m still getting inquiries about the luscious leather tote bag I was rockin’ in some of the photos.
With Cyber Monday in full effect, I figured this would be the best time to tell you about the bag and how you can get one at 20% off!
I stumbled upon the m0851 store while strolling in SoHo during my New York Fashion Week visit in September. I had never heard of the brand but the smell of leather drew me in. I was immediately impressed with the quality of the bags that lined the ramp as I entered the store.
Based on the high level of craftsmanship, and the store’s location, I assumed I would have to drop a large sum of money to take a piece of m0851 home with me. I was completely wrong. In addition to the relatively reasonable price tag, I was even more tempted by the 30% off moving sale they were having. As I canvassed the store, I discovered that bags were not the only products this 24 year old, Montreal-based brand had to offer.
From the travel bags to the leather jackets, everything was well-made and worth every penny. The leather varied from extremely soft (for the outerwear) to just plain sturdy (as noticed in the bags and totes).
It was the color and raw edges that attracted me to the large Vachetta Shopping Tote in Chestnut. It is the perfect carryall. And although it is a simple design, there is something about the leather and the shape that tends to garner attention.
Sidenote: The embossed m0851 logo is actually on the back of the bag but I carry it towards the front because it adds to its distinctive character.
Needless to say, I am glad I found this gem! It is a bag that I know will age beautifully and last for years to come.
Now, for the Cyber Monday Sale!
