We tagged them Instagram hottest new handbag brand. Taking Instagram by storm last summer, it seems Manu Atelier’s success in the accessories department won’t stop there.
Branching out into the footwear department (ticking off the second of our two guiltiest pleasures), sisters behind the label, Beste and Merve Manastır, have tapped into their innate sense of what’s cool and produced a collection of shoes that we not only *need*, but that will be all over your Instagram feed for the foreseeable.
Speaking about their decision to kick off the brand with the handbag collection, as opposed to shoes, the sisters said
“Handbags are the most tangible face of our childhood and infatuation with our father and his artisanship.”
And they’re now launching their brand extension with the comfort blanket of a very loyal fan base that includes not only endless influencers and fashion editors, but also one of the most influential royals in the world, Kate Middleton, who loves her mini emerald green box bag.
