I have a bit of a Marc Jacobs obsession right now. I love his ladylike bags for fall, especially with the added structured body, two toned coloring, and chain link shoulder strap. While the Gene Satchel is a bit more subdued, the Marc Jacobs Single Sequined Bag adds a burst of fun in neutral colors.

I already expect dissenting opinions, but let me explain to you all why I like this bag.


Remember the Marc Jacobs Tweed Bag with Florescent baubles? I bought that and I adore it. It has the right bit of over-the-top in each detail that it just works. But I will be the first to admit that it is rather eye-catching and a bit too much for many occasions, which is why I am honing in on this sequined bag.

There is undoubtedly sensory overload going on with the bag; we have multicolored sequin embellishment paired with a textured leather flap over front and chain and leather strap. But the entire bag is neutral in color, which tones down everything going on and gives a fun yet feminine touch. I just adore this bag. And this bag reminds me that fall is around the corner (along with our big move to NYC) and that puts and ear-to-ear smile on my face. Buy via Net A Porter for $995.

    i love this bag!! i would hate it if it was done in anything bright, but this colour or a gunmetal with grey sequins would be TDF!

    I think this bag is absolutely gorgeous. I’d use it as an everyday bag where I feel I need to be uplifted. I wear all black to work everyday of the work week. This kind of handbag would give the outfits some spice.
    But I’m wondering if the sequins would snag on clothes when it would be against it or could the sequins themselves come off.

    No way.

    Sorry, no way.

    If only it didnt have the chanel chain link strap…..

    La borsa è semplicemente bellissima, e devo dire che le collezioni di borse di Jacobs (sia quelle per la sua prima linea che quelle per Vuitton) per il prossimo inverno mi hanno davvero colpito!

    The bag is just amzing and I really love the Jacobs collection of bag for the following season (both Vuitton and his first line) …

    I love Marc Jacobs handbags, but I have been disappointed lately. Add this bag to the list. It’s too much going on. If the textured leather were flat and smooth, I would give it two thumbs up. The chain strap and sequins are enough.

  • Stefanie

    I hate the strap almost as much as I love the sequins.

    The Chanel style strap looks tacky and misplaced on anything but Chanel. Just my opinion!

    On first glance, love it ! On second glance not sure on the color of the leather flap and strap.

  • Anushree@Anans

    Interesting bag. But not sure the leather flap complements the embellishments.

  • MizzJ

    Looks very pretty in the photo, but I think that the sequins would wear on me too much and just look more cheap in person.
