Fifteen years ago, Marc Jacobs released its Classic Q collection. Feel old yet?

It was the late 2000s, the height of the It-bag era, and Marc Jacobs was one of the hottest handbag designers. Jacobs’ diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, became a staple of the millennial generation, beloved for its buttery soft leathers in stunning colors with bold hardware detailing. Anyone who loved bags in the 2000s remembers the Marc Jacobs aesthetic in its heyday, and now, a whole new generation of Y2K-obsessed fans will get to experience Marc Jacobs with the re-release of one of its most beloved collections: the Classic Q.

A Classic Returns

In celebration of the collection’s 15th anniversary, Marc Jacobs has dipped into its archives to re-release its Classic Q collection. Defined by its supple leathers and military-inspired Marc Jacobs gold plaque hardware, the line included many different shapes and silhouettes over its production period.

Arguably though, one of the most beloved was the fan-favorite Classic Q Hillier Hobo, which is back, along with other re-edition styles. While over the years, Marc Jacobs released an array of beautiful colors, with the re-editions, he chose to bring back the classics – black, a cognac brown called argan oil, and true red, which defined this line.

The line of revivals includes the Karlie, the Mini Natasha, the Lil Ukita, and the Hillier Hobo. This line differs slightly from other archival revivals of its kind, as these bags aren’t vintage-inspired; they are true re-editions pulled directly from the archives with identical features to the originals. Prices range from $275 for the Karlie to $495 for the Lil Ukita. Discover more via Marc Jacobs.

I think this is smart for a brand trapped in a downward spiral for the past few years… Marc Jacobs (the brand) deserves better than what it is today. Let’s see.

Marc Jacobs used to make beautiful made in Italy bags and clothing and now it is nothing more than a michael kors discount brand – unfortunately it had to do with Marc’s drug problems and his fallout business partner robert duffy in addition to lvmh pulling out of the high end brand

It will be interesting to see how this works out.

I’ve gotten the impression that the current y2k revival trend mainly centers on the *other* styles of 2000s bags: either little simple easy to carry shoulder bags, or big maximalist bags with lots of fun dangly things, mixes of textures, and strange unnecessary compartments.

Something like this feels both too simple and not simple enough.

What a blast from the past! I’ve still got my Fran tucked away in a dust bag somewhere in my closet, though I don’t see myself bringing it down any time soon

I did like the vintage MJ, but don’t care for the newer but cheaply made MJ.

I remember wanting the hobo. Now, the bag is too big for my lifestyle. It’s nice to see some of the classics.

I still have the nylon versions of some of the bags which are lighter and in nice colours. But I havent used them for a really long time.

I love MJ and have lots of his purses on my constant rotation. Currently using a denim hobo Marc by Marc Jacobs. Very well made and so unique. Obsessed with Marc Jacobs. ❤❤❤❤
