Marc Jacobs is, easily, one of my favorite bag designers of all time. I love all the wacky stuff Louis Vuitton has done under his creative leadership, and I love both of his signature labels. He lost me a bit last season, though…some of his bags were kinda misshapen, am I right? And the colors were a bit drap. And had a random stud or two on them. In any case, I think those were a rare misstep for a brilliant designer. Even MJ is human, and everyone makes mistakes. What is NOT a mistake, though, is the new Marc Jacobs Large Leather Tote. I see it as a perfect work bag for those who are lucky enough to work in a slightly laid-back environment. It’s rendered in staid black leather, but Marc manages to get the stud detailing right with this one, having it accent the strap attachments (instead of, you know, just being stuck on there randomly). I’m not sure I entirely agree with the price, but if you’ve got the cash, go for it! Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1295.
