Another day, another Marc Jacobs bag that I like. I swear I’m not on his payroll (although Marc, if you’re out there and you’d like me to be on your payroll, I’m not above a little conflict of interest), I just tend to really like his bags and his line is one of the largest out there, meaning there’s constantly something new to write about from him. And now, we’ve got the Marc Jacobs Alyona Patent leather Satchel.
First, I’ll say this – I like red. It’s always been my favorite color (which is apparently rare, according to an old graphics professor I had) and it’s one of my alma mater’s colors. I also really like patent leather in almost all incarnations – we all have questionable aspects to our taste level, and that’s one of mine. I don’t care how inappropriate it is, make it shiny! With the Alyona, the design is so simple and so free of other unnecessary adornment, that doing such a bright color in such an eye-catching material actually works. At least I think it does, but like I said, I have some taste-level weaknesses. Buy through Saks for $1350.
