This bag is not new to anyone, or at least it shouldn’t be. It’s one of the most well-executed all-purpose hobos that you can find at any sort of reasonable price, and it has come in a variety of colors and hardware options every season for the past few years. I have one myself in cream from two summers ago.
So why am I writing about the Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Faridah when we already know what it is and what it’s about? Because sometimes, it’s not about the next big thing. In a crisp white with nickel hardware, this bag is as fresh as it was the day it debuted and just as functional and durable as it ever was. My cream version has weathered extremely well for a light color, even though it has some dye transfer from jeans and dark shirts on the back, and I still get compliments on it. Structurally, the bag is completely intact and the leather still feels great. If you’re on a limited budget and need a versatile bag for this season, I can’t recommend it enough. Buy through Nordstrom for $448.
