There’s something I’ve heard a lot about Maison Martin Margiela. It’s a little phrase, and it starts like this: Back when Margiela was good… etcetera. That’s sort of depressing, and while some may think that it applies to this nifty little sack, I disagree. On the contrary, I believe that this MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Suede Pouch is understated enough to be perfectly chic.
It’s entirely suede, but that makes for a wonderful summer bag. Plus it adds an extra texturized touch to your outfit, which is, let’s face it, mostly cotton at that time of year. And the color is a sort of a toned-down indigo with a touch of grey, unexpected for summer. Perhaps it’s just because I like wearing wintry textures and colors in the summer, which slightly confuses people, but this pouch is growing on me more and more.
It’s just so simple that it would be a breeze to pair with anything- and look effortless, at that. The big gunmetal attachments add a more interesting element to it all, making it a tad more mechanical but still incredibly easy. I’d wear it logo-side-in, though. Buy through Saks for $265.
