The last time we wrote about the Marc by Marc Jacobs Save the Birds Lenny Day Bag, the Saks pre-order sold out so quickly that many people didn’t get a chance to reserve theirs. Now that it’s back, we thought we’d let you know in case you’re one of the people whose pre-order attempts weren’t successful the first time around.

And if this is your first time hearing of this bag, please allow us to register a hearty recommendation in its favor; the materials are beautiful, the design is interesting but functional, and the price is far more palatable than we’d expect for a purse that looks this good. For those who prefer darker colors, the bag also comes in chocolate brown. Buy through Saks for $528.

      ITA that it’s ugly!

  • kemilia

    I don’t care for the flaps and that skinny chain at all.

  • 19yearslater

    I think it looks very high-end for a pretty mid-range price.

  • Vitta

    I love it – the style, the price, the size. There’s something very unique about it. Edgy, yet elegant. No wonder it was initially pre-sold. I’m going to order it in chocolate. Thank you for the heads-up!

  • Stylista

    It looks like a piece of flimsy wax paper folded together to look like a bag. Sorry, but no! Maybe, MAYBE, choco brown would look better.

    I lvoe the shape but I believe that thecolor is not “so beautiful” and the general apperance is a bit “cheap, shabby”..-..I don’t know, I lvoe the bag but I can’t like it completely!

  • Mochababe73

    I didn’t like it in September, and I don’t like it now. It’s just really bad origami.

  • MAX

    I like it though, but it’s IMPORTED that mean from China right?? cuz the price is too reasonable to be Marc Jacobs bag.

    • Vitta

      Pretty much all leading brands have their handbags made overseas, including China. So, everything’s imported these days. Except for the Carlos Falchi handbags, which are made in the U.S.

  • Julie

    Sorry – don’t like it at all. Looks cheap, too much going on and I agree with another poster’s comment about origami.

  • Karin bag4bag

    It is intriguing but damn ugly ! I think the chain would be an annoyance.

  • Lola

    I can see what some people mean by it looking “cheap”, but I think it would look amazing when styled properly! Definitely has a lot of potential (ipad)
