Normally I like Marc by Marc Jacobs bags because the brand tends to take a very traditional or classic idea and put just enough of a spin on it to make it interesting and young without making it too obvious or non-functional, but the Marc by Marc Jacobs Bianca Leather Top Handle has me wondering whether or not it went far enough this time. Does this design look just a little too normal and run-of-the-mill to be a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag to anyone else?
While I’m sure that this bag and its leather are lovely in person, from here, it looks far too much like something I could pick up at any lower mid-range department store for $60. MbMJ’s trademark winking personality isn’t evident in this bag, and because of its absence, I can’t imagine paying a premium. Perhaps it will work for women who need conservative bags for the office, but I couldn’t imagine wanting to carry this design on the weekend. Buy through Saks for $458.
