Sorry, Marc Jacobs, you’re going to have to do something more interesting to get me to sit up and pay attention than what you did with the Marc Jacobs Studded Satin Bag.

Yes, yes. Quilting, tonal studs, chain handle, we get it. And it’s on-trend, but for some reason it’s just not exciting. Or maybe it would be more exciting if this bag, which is made of absolutely zero leather, were priced in a more appropriate way for a non-leather bag. So exactly how much is it?

Marc Jacobs Studded Satin Bag

It’s $1695, which blows my mind – Jacobs is usually much more reasonable on pricing when it comes to his satin or nylon bags, but not here. And that’s not to say that this bag doesn’t look well made – it does. The quilting is incredibly precise and the satin is just plush enough to make it look luxe. The tonal studding is a nice nod to one of this season’s big trend. It has some things going for it.

But overall, $1695 is too much to pay for a satin evening bag without obvious proof that some serious artistry or hand work has gone in to it, and that’s just not evident here. Knock about a thousand bucks off of the price tag, and maybe we can talk. Maybe. Buy through Nordstrom for $1695.

    That’s the price to pay to be on-trend and get Marc’s classic style, I guess. But that doesn’t mean its not outlandish.

    If I’m gonna pay $1695 for a bag, there better be some leather in it.

    Sorry for the double post. My computer said the first hadn’t worked.

    I’ll admit the bag is nothing special but I don’t hate it (like those horrid Chanel bags that Lily Allen modeled that I’m sure has poor Coco Chanel spinning in her grave).

    I do like the twisted handle and the lock hardware but $1695 is a little much for a bag that isn’t even leather.

    Mmm, I love Marc Jacobs bags, really, so beautifully made, but this one looks like a cheap Chanel knock off. Sorry Marc!

    Is it bullet-proof? Does it have GPS tracking? Seriously, what’s the catch.

    Not exciting at all. Whatever happened to cutting edge?

  • nancyrush9

    Pretty boring, especially for a bag as expensive as this one!

  • MissLoveChanel

    Bland bag, outrageous price; what are they up to at MJ?

  • heatherdazy

    I don’t get it. Anyone who really wanted this style would just buy Chanel, right?
