GG Maull’s The Sophisticate is business-appropriate, flirty and chic all at once. We immediately fell for this Italian-made carryall, with its cheery red color that adds a bright pop to any outfit.
The Sophisticate is made from calf leather with Nubuck trim and is available in several colors, although we chose the bright poppy red variation. It features a chic jacquard lining with the GG Maull logo and matching “Essentials Pouch” in the same pattern and contrasting bright blue hue. We also love its exterior easy access cell phone pocket, so we can keep talking and texting without skipping a beat.
GG Maull is a New York-based handbag collection by designer Gretchen Maull Berger. Each piece references art deco styling and uses Italian leather to create timeless statement pieces marked by “rebellious sophistication and refined maximalism.” Before launching the collection, Maull designed handbags and accessories for some of the most coveted fashion brands including Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein, Coach, Kate Spade and Juicy Couture.
GG Maull’s The Sophisticate in Rouge retails for $895 and can be purchased at GGMaull.com as well as select Intermix boutiques.
