BRAND OF THE WEEK: Alan Myerson

Australian brand, Alan Myerson is the brainchild of dynamic design duo, Alan Myerson and Prue Buckley. The Alan Myerson collection features luxurious leather accessories for men and women, as well as Alpaca knitwear and hats. Myerson and Buckley draw inspiration for their collections from exotic locations such as Southern Mexico, the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and the Andes of Peru and Ecuador.
After working for a designer menswear retailer in Melbourne’s prestigious Little Collins Street, Myerson identified a gap in the market for quality men’s accessories. Fifteen years later, Myerson has travelled thousands of kilometres to remote locations to source high-quality materials and gather a talented team of craftspeople and artisans. Myerson is passionate about building strong manufacturing relationships and fair trade practices with local people and communities overseas.

Prue Buckley “believes in creating streamlined, simple pieces that are beautiful and versatile”. With a background in retail and women’s fashion, Buckley understands the importance of fashionable pieces that are designed to last. Buckley’s experience in costume design also helps her design original and beautiful pieces in a variety of materials.  
The Alan Myerson brand works to the simple philosophy of creating “timeless pieces by incorporating a subtle twist to essentially clean design; using skilled craftspeople for production, resulting in quality pieces that can be worn for seasons to come”. In addition to skilled craftspeople, Alan Myerson products are created using high-quality materials and simple tools, which give pieces a “hand-made” feel. The range is jointly designed by Myerson and Buckley in their home on the Victorian coast.

Some of Alan Myerson’s leather products are manufactured locally in Melbourne, whilst others are produced by an offshore manufacturer that Myerson has a built a longstanding relationship with. Top-quality, full-grain skins are sourced from Italy and Japan to ensure product longevity and that they meet Alan Myerson’s high standards.

Mr Gift is proud to support the Alan Myerson brand by stocking their men’s leather accessories and hats.
