To me, the combination of Marc by Marc Jacobs and the brights trend always seemed like a complete no-brainer. In fact, I expected to see an MbMJ collection chock full of neon a full year ago, when the look was just getting started. It’s the kind of thing that appeals so obviously to the Marc demographic that the marrying of the two was only a matter of time.
Surprisingly, though, it took a tad more time than I expected. MbMJ has dabbled in brights here and there in the past few seasons, but the Marc by Marc Jacobs Bob’s Memphis Trip Colorblock Top Handle and the Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Python-Embossed Messenger are the two biggest, boldest examples of colorblocking and neon that I’ve seen from the brand. It’s about time.
