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)
