Sometime in 2017, Mansur Gavriel ventured into small leather goods with the Moon Wallet, a perfect semi-circle leather piece that stole all our hearts. This year, the label continues to expand its SLG range with an all-new addition, the super chic Train Case that comes in Mansur Gavriel’s signature vegetable tanned leather or calf leather.

Before going into the description proper, here’s a little bit of history about the name behind train case. Merriam-Webster defines it as ‘a small boxlike piece of luggage especially used for toilet articles’, which has its roots dating back to the 1940s, when a key mode of transport was trains. Back then, instead of unbuckling heavy trunks to find certain key essentials, the latter was stored in a mini bag, one that contained articles like cosmetic items and personal accessories, that grew to be known as a train case.

Fast forward to 2018, it can be defined as a typical vanity case, where the zippered circular case is armed with a top handle for ease of use. Mansur Gavriel’s latest piece is a modern variation sporting the exact same name, and is a chic little mini bag that’s equipped with 7 slip pouches within. Measuring 23 cm wide, their Train Case is perfect for storing all your makeup essentials, or it can also be the perfect piece to take out on casual weekends for an afternoon tea session with the ladies.

Priced at just USD445 for the one in vegetable tanned leather (only comes in Black) and USD495 for the calf leather versions (Blu, Blush, Flamma and Rosa), you can get yours online from Mansur Gavriel. Which colour has your heart?
