I'm not sure why, but I always love Marc Jacobs' resort accessories the best. Maybe because they're less conceptual and theme-heavy than those from the spring and fall runway shows, making them more closet-friendly to the average customer? Maybe because the cheery, playful feeling of early spring fits well with Jacobs' signature whimsy? Maybe a little of Column A and a little of Column B?
Whatever the cause, bags like the ones from Marc Jacobs Resort 2013 almost always catch my fancy. Those of you who aren't fans of Jacobs' collaboration with Yayoi Kusama at Vuitton will want to look away from the polka dotted offerings, which are indeed the weakest of the group, but there's plenty else to take your attention. My favorites are the looks in rubberized leather, which is a material that combines exceptional durability with ultrasaturated matte color for an incredibly bold statement accessory. The red one? I'm dying over here. Luckily, you and I both can pre-order the collection until June 19 via Moda Operandi. Of course, we also have all the pictures after the jump.
