From downtown to uptown, there is no Fashionista who doesn’t have a Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C. Fashionable and functional, the M.A.C packs a punch with its bold chain details, dog clip and zipper tassels – the perfect fusion of boho meets edgy.
An eponymous label known for their popular handbags, accessories and apparels, Rebecca Minkoff has been making waves with her playful and subtly edgy designs. Hailing from San Diego, California, the 34 year-old designer founded the Rebecca Minkoff label with her brother Uri Minkoff.
Debuting her collection with the M.A.B (Morning After Bag) in 2005, the label was quickly propelled to the frontier of fashion when the bag found its way to the arms of celebrities like Gisele Bündchen, Hayden Panettiere and Lindsay Lohan. The M.A.B. was a bag she had initially designed for family friend and actress Jenna Elfman for a TV Show, and was one she envisioned as a carrier to take with from day-to-night, and till the next morning.
The M.A.C (which stands for Morning After Clutch) was later introduced, and this sealed Rebecca’s mark on the fashion map. Made of supple leather that ages well over time, the M.A.C comes in a plethora of colours and prints. The edgy dog clip clasp on the front flap of the bag, unique to the M.A.C series, is also available in silver, gold, rose gold and now black hardware; perfectly complementing the chain detail on the strap. With just the right amount of tassels dangling from the zipper pulls, the M.A.C brings edge with a boho-feminine touch for the girl on the go.
Want your very own Morning After Clutch? We’ve got four looks that’ll prove just how versatile the mini M.A.C is!
For your Nine-to-Five
Don’t underestimate the M.A.C, this clutch will take your office look up a notch! Add dimension to your classic staples of basic trousers, blouses or waistcoats with your M.A.C in tow. Whether you’re all for the perennial monochromatic hues or sporting the season’s pantone colour, dried herb, Rebecca Minkoff’s wide variety of colours will leave you endless of options to choose from!
Style tip: Match the colour of the hardware on your M.A.C to your accessories for a more complete and polished look that will take you from boardroom to bar effortlessly!
For dress-down Fridays
If you’re the type to let your hair down on Fridays by wearing bold prints and slipping into a pair of casual jeans, try out the boho-chic and dessert-diva inspired look! Imbue Nicole Ritchie vibes by completing the look with fringe details (to match the tassels on your M.A.C, of course), and pile on gold accessories.
Style tip: Think earthy tones, fringe and lots of gold when it comes to pulling off the bohemian trend. Camel, brown and nude colours help tone down the bold paisley and floral prints, while gold accessories will help add that touch of chicness you need for your after-office merry-making!
For Ladies’ Night
Opt for a more sensual, sultry and sleek look with a twist of punk and rock-inspired glamour at your next get-together with the girls. Simply put, the biker chick look! Leather Moto jacket (with lots of zippers), leggings (with zippers, again), a bralet underneath, and pointy boots – nail the biker chick look with silver accessories! The M.A.C’s silver hardware will be the perfect complement to your look. Detach the chain and clutch your M.A.C in style.
Style tip: Opt for only silver accessories to pull off the biker chick look to a tee. Silver accessories reflect more light and will seem bigger and chunkier, to add some tough edge to your otherwise sleek look.
For your Weekend Wind-down
Nothing like an easy-breezy weekend with flowy fabric, shorts, crochet details and comfy footwear. Prance about town in effortless summer wear that will take you from errands, to shopping or even a road trip! For your fuss-free jaunts, count on the M.A.C to be your grab-and-go buddy!
