How much do I love the Marni Layered Leather Satchel, exactly? A lot. I love it a lot. There is nothing not to love about it. I was prepared to whine a little bit that there’s no optional crossbody strap, but lo and behold, there is one. Absent that, I can think of literally nothing to complain about when it comes to this bag. Except, of course, the fact that I don’t currently have one in my possession.

Marni is having a bit of a moment right now because of its excellent, high-profile collaboration with H&M, and the brand seems to be taking advantage of its raised profile quite well by releasing some of its best work to date. If you’re into Marni’s signature take on retro-modernism, you already know of which I speak.

I’m still trying to figure out exactly how Marni managed to take ivory, tan and black and make a bag that seems so…non-neutral. Bold, even. And while some brands want to print on canvas and charge you an arm and a leg, not only is this bag all leather, but the pattern isn’t even printed. Instead, the different colors and shapes are layered on top of each other, creating a three-dimensional, highly detailed bag that still wears like a basic tan tote. For how great looking this design is, the price is a relative deal. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1610.

    I usually do not love Marni much. The creations for H&M were frankly speaking not their best…but this bag is really nice, new, original, fresh and simply unique. Love it!

    I am so excited that you decided to show this bag I was just drooling over its beauty last night.  At first I thought the bag was just patterned fabric, and then to my absolute delight I clicked on the picture and found out the pattern was made out of leather.  It has a vintage pattern and look, but it is completely modern because Marni brilliantly  cut and sewed the leather in layers so that the pattern pops off the bag takes on a 3D quality.  Oh how I wish I had the money to purchase this bag because I am obsessed with Mad Men and the fifties and this bag is screaming my name.
