SU13 Preview Week: Manoush

It’s LeSportsac’s last collaborative season with Manoush, and we’re sending it off with Manoush x LeSportsac’s signature bohemian print along with other unexpected fabrications for a flirty Summer 2013!

In a new fabricaction made for aquatic adventures, the Manoush Jelly PVC is the summer must-have in a glossy hot pink jelly accompanied with gold webbing and hardware, making your bag the talk of the beach!  Carry your adorable towel and sandals in this see-through piece, and show off your goods! (Arriving in July)

For more of a wink, Fleur D’ete is the beloved Fall black Boheme Fleur print recolored for a fresh summer spin – an eggshell ground with golden embroidered Hamsas and piping, along with pink webbing. The Manoush Eyelet is a beautifully soft fabric eyelet with gold piping and hardware, with demure tonal ruffles on most styles – it’s probably the girliest bag this collection has seen! (Both arriving in June)

For the full collection, shop and our freestanding stores in June and July.


POTW: Fleur Paillettes

Fleur: floral; Paillettes: glitter.

This isn’t your ordinary spring bouquet.

Inspired by Manoush’s lady-in-charge Frederique Trou-Roy’s uniquely daring yet feminine aesthetic, Fleur Paillettes is the perfect example of beauty that can be girly and bold, strong and graceful.  Is there a better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than with this print?

While the rosy blooms are sweet, punchy sprigs of orange and tangy mint decorated with winking iridescent sequins make this floral a sassy younger sister of your granny’s duvet.  Anchored in black ruffles and gold detail, this bag is for the HBIC in all of us, a woman who isn’t afraid of a little sparkle and shine.

Celebrate the “Rosie the Riveter” in you, and make some splashes of your own!


SP13 Preview Week: Manoush & Platinum

For the final day of our Spring 2013 Preview Week, we offer sneak-peeks of two of our Special Collections…

The cold temperatures of January have us dreaming of warm Spring air filled with the scent of fresh blooms, to tide you over until then here’s a preview of our upcoming Spring 2013 Manoush x LeSportsac Collection – a full-on floral fantasy!

The print blocking trend so prevalent on the spring runaways inspired Rayures et Fleurs – select panels feature a pink striped print embroidered with golden Hamsas, while the opposing panels are a ditzy pink floral print that brings back girlish memories of springtimes past. Pictured above in Rayures et Fleurs is the Gypsy Paillettes Carryall – our fan-favorite Gypsy Carryall gets dolled up for spring with strips of dangling golden paillettes adorning the side panels. With its convenient size, accessible pockets and adjustable/detachable strap, this style is ideal for a weekend getaway. (Available in April)

The Spring Collection “IT” handbag is the Freddie Frame Bag, named after the talented creator of Manoush, Frederique Trou-Roy. This style is a “must-have” with its unique large kiss lock main closure, piped edges for added structure, and pintuck pleats along the bottom of the front pocket. It will be available in two variations, the Freddie Fluo Frame Bag and Freddie Frill Frame Bag. Pictured above is the Freddie Fluo Frame Bag in Fluo et Pois, a sure-to-be favorite fabrication featuring a cream ground embroidered with golden lurex dots, and select styles include the addition of trendy ruffles and/or eye-catching neon yellow and pink braided trims. (Available in March)

A combination of bold florals and shining sequins makes up Fleurs Paillettes print. Inspired by a vintage Romanian scarf, the bright pink, green and beige hues are made even more attention grabbing with a myriad of mulit-colored sequins – adding delicacy and dazzle to styles such as the La Boheme Crossbody and La Vie Frill Tote shown above. They’re great for traveling the globe with an original and out of the ordinary piece! (Available in March)


Enjoy the beautiful season of spring with our Cosmetiques Large in Fleur
Printemps. This accessory is just the right size to fit your more important necessities stylishly.  The grosgrain bow and Hamsa charm on front add that extra touch of character and detail.  The Fleur Printemps print portrays exactly what you think of when spring arrives, bright and colorful! (Available in March)

Mon Coeur is exclusively made in the La Vie Fluo (or “The Life Fluorescent”) Tote. It is accessorized with both cream grosgrain ribbon ruffles and neon top braiding around the opening as well as metal feet on the bottom. The front panel features an intricately embroidered golden heart detailed with sparkling stones and shining sequins, giving a feeling that spring love is in the air! (Available in March)

The all new Marrakech Tote features piping around the front and back edges, an adjustable crossbody strap, and a trendy detachable charm for a flirty finishing touch. It’s the perfect size for a quick trip to the library or a fashionable statement at the workplace. Shown above in Mon Coeur Noir, a rich black background with the same intricately embroidered/sequined golden heart design on the front panel as Mon Coeur, but with the addition of multi-color stones. (Available in March)

Next up we shift gears and preview our newest Platinum Collection – full of springtime sparkle and shine!

For Spring we introduce the look of shining metallics and terrific textures into our Platinum Collection. Copper Sequins shine bright and our special quilting technique will be available in an all new neutral hue this season – Metallic Quilted is a soft taupy-beige shimmer. Along with Black Quilted back by popular demand from last season, each Platinum fabrication is offered in numerous styles, including our tried and true Small Passerby shown above. This collection can dress up any outfit and make quite the spring fashion statement, you’re sure to be the talk of the town! (Available in February)


W12 Preview Week: Manoush

We already brought you one bold installation of Frederique Troy-Roy’s Manoush collaboration, but you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!  Winter typically beckons somber and subdued color palettes, but for the Manoush x LeSportsac Collection, even winter has its bright flavor.

You may have seen a hint of it in our ad campaign featuring Manoush, and those of you who predicted or wished for it are in for a treat!  The beautiful brocade serving as the wallpaper for our pink on pink bedroom was inspired by Fleur Rose, a beautiful berry jacquard with floral gold Lurex that is one of Manoush’s original prints!  The black colorway, Fleur Noir features a purple to blue ombré brocade. (Arriving in early November)

If you couldn’t get enough of the Hamsa quilting on the pink Manoush Quilting from Fall, we’ve added the St. Bart’s Turquoise Quilting to our repertoire. This pop of color is available in two styles and coordinates beautifully with the gold, black and warm berry colors! (Arriving in early December)

Another new fabrication is Paillettes, available in Manoush Paillettes, a multi-color sequin with passion fruit grosgrain and gold webbing; and Chateuse Paillettes, the same mulit-sequins, but paired with panels of golden Chateuse Sparkle patent. These will add a blast of sparkle to all of your holiday parties for sure! (Arriving in early December)

One of the most fun parts of the Manoush x LeSportsac Collection is the variety of show-stopping, double-take pieces.  One of the favorites from last season had to be our Bisous Frill Clutch, so we had to repeat it this season in solid gold ruffles and a glitter kiss-lock closure! (Arriving in early December)

Our placement tote this season is the La Vie Tote in Swan Lake, a graphic standout with photo-real swans and flowers floating in surreal world of purple stars! Totes amaze! (Arriving in early November)

And if you are looking for something completely over-the-top, then the La Boheme Crossbody in St. Barts Hamsa is for you! It combines golden fringe and braided trim with a beautifully bejeweled embroidered Hamsa on rich Turquoise fabric. Definitely fringe with benefits! (Arriving in early December)

C’est magnifique!
