I’ve been on a casual search for the perfect baby bag for the past few months, despite the fact that I don’t have any babies and I don’t anticipate having any for quite a while (and possibly ever). I’m not sure why this particular segment of the market has me so curious, except for the fact that it seems like it has only recently been recognized by many designers.
After dozens of baby bags and enough paisley print to make me a little swimmy in the head, I finally found a diaper bag that speaks to me. No surprises here: the all-black Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Eliz-a-Baby Nylon Bag is what I’d reach for if I found myself in a family way.
Of course, my favorite part of this bag is that it has all the functionality of a baby bag but it doesn’t broadcast itself as such to anyone that happens to see it. The nylon construction is important to deal with spills and moisture, and the dark exterior and patterned interior help disguise stains or wear. Plus, if you’d like something a little bit different, the bag is entirely reversible to reveal the black-and-white gingham check inside. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $278.
