Marc Jacobs Rolls Royce Fold-Over Clutch

I’ll freely admit it – this is an odd little clutch. I mean, it’s got an old car on it. That’s weird, right? Why does a purse need a picture on it? And why a cartoon of a vintage Rolls Royce?

Honestly, I have no idea. I don’t have the answers to those questions. It doesn’t make any sense to me. But, for some reason, I think this little Marc Jacobs Rolls Royce Fold-Over clutch is completely adorable. And I’m not even sure that I can explain, in words, why I feel that way.

I’m not much of one for decoration of that type. I don’t think I own a single t-shirt that I’d wear outside of the house that has anything on the front of it. I don’t own any patterned bags, and normally I think extra stuff on the outside of the bag is there to distract from a boring design.

But this clutch is so whimsical and seems like such a sly throwback to a bygone era that I find it charming and smart. And I’m kind of worried about myself because of it. Buy through eLuxury for $1495.

    It’s kinda fun, but I would never, ever spend money on such a thing.

    I am not sure I would buy it either, but I actually really like it too amanda!

    Oddly, I really like it. I’m not even much of a car person. It’s just so cute.

    I have found myself strangely drawn to it, as well. Also, the leather interior adds an extra interest for me. I can totally see this clutch with a great simplistic outfit and a confident person carrying it for a head turning look.

    This look like another “bag I created while I was stoned”. But, ” I freely admit I was stoned when I created the Vuitton headphone bag and it sold for 15K, so let’s see how gullible they still are”.

    I am oddly drawn to this too but i really really cant justify the price.

  • Jennifer

    I think its cute, too, in an off-the-wall kind of way!

    Hmmmmmm. Did you see the episode of Sex & the City where Big buys Carrie the beaded clutch. I think it was in the shape of a swan. Anyway, if you remember her reaction to it, that’s kinda how I feel about this one.

    Lol, the big diamond duck purse.

    I LOVE it! But the price tag is a little too steep for me for what it is.

    If it was in the $200 – $500 range, I think I’d be tempted…

    Even if it’s not a Marc Jacobs, it’s still nice. But it’s just too pricey.

    The car motif is very Paul Smith..
    i think if i were going to spend that much on a bag – it would be the PS version.

    Marc does fabulous shoes though :)

    I feel this is really insensitive to today economy flaunting a rolls royce when people need food and housing. It is just wrong

  • adina

    On the internet it looked intriguing but in real life it’s pretty drab, it’s got no feeling of luxury to it at all.

    I just bought it today actually. And I LOVE it. Personally, I love fun items like this and it doesn’t bother me at all that it has a car on it. On the contrary…why not?
