Party Report: Mackage x Purseblog Teams Up to Make The Perfect Purse


THE PARTY: An in-store cocktail celebration for the launch of The Nomad, a Mackage and Purseblog collaboration.

THE PLACE: Mackage's store in Soho

THE DEETS: As the weather begins to feel more and more like winter, the Mackage Soho store is the place you want to be. On Thursday night, fashion editors and celebrities escaped the windy city streets to take refuge inside the sleek locale for cocktails and music (surrounded by winter coats and leather jackets, of course) to celebrate the launch of The Nomad, a Mackage and Purseblog collaboration. Amid music played by DJ Brendan Fallis, guests including Adrienne Bailon and Theophilus London enjoyed cocktails named after the designers and the bag themselves.

Though Mackage is basically synonymous with outerwear, designers Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy have begun to take their designs to the next level. As an extension of their fall 2013 handbag collection, the duo teamed up with Purseblog’s Meaghan Mahoney Dusil to design a bag that would serve multiple purposes. The black leather bag can be worn slung across your body, perched on your shoulder or as a clutch or it can even be taken apart to make three different bags. It’s simple enough to throw on with any outfit, but edgy enough to make a statement. With this epic marriage of cool and practical, The Nomad is a bag we’re coveting – it’ll certainly help us keep our on-the-go lives in check.

The Nomad is available at Mackage Soho or for $395.
