Help me out folks. Would you pay $1295 for this tote? I realize it is a Marc Jacobs design, but still, I really can’t get passed this price tag. This price has me shaking my head with each stroke on my keyboard.

Alright, enough of my disbelief and onto the bag itself. This Marc Jacobs Love Bird Leather Tote is a bright and cheery tote that will add quite a bit of color to just about any outfit you might want to pair it with.

Marc Jacobs has partnered fluorescent pink, fluorescent yellow and black on this hand-painted oversized leather tote. The two black leather top handles have the slightest hints of gold-tone stud detailing. I was really impressed with the gold-tone studs down each side of this large tote. It’s not often that you see bags with this kind of detailing, so I welcomed it with open arms.

This is the kind of bag I would love to use as my carry-on during travel days. I could fit everything in it, including my laptop and still look really fashionable. I have seen enough boring black carry-on bags at airports and the colors on this bag are enough to boost the spirits of those in just about any security line. The bag is finished off with a designer-stamped padlock which is a nice addition, but it doesn’t make or break the bag. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1295.

  • Shan, I saw this in person yesterday at Marc Jacobs and it is actually quite cute. Seeing as how it is a fairly roomy leather tote, I don’t think the price it that bad! And yes, would be a great travel tote or everyday work bag :)

  • I like it too. The fluorescent with the black is fun, and the price is good.

  • Roxy

    I really don’t think is the right price for the bag….
    this material is not so expensive….the design is not new, is a normal tote!…..
    I think Marc Jacobs is a great designer, but I prefer other bags.

      sooorrry I thought it was fabric!!!! If this is a leather bag the price is right! sorry my comment above is sooo wrong!

  • Gayle

    I like the color but find the style kind of ho hum. It does bring some color to a dreary Canadian winter day but I think the price is too high.

    I love pink! I love Marc Jacobs! I love loud colors!
    Too bad that I am not loving this bag. Something about it is not exciting me.

  • p-gatto

    It is kinda 80’s. I can see Deborah Harry from Blondie with it! I like it!

  • Cheryl

    Colors do make it a fun tote for the spring, but do not think it is worth the price tag.

    Good beach bag (fb)

    I like the colors – but then again I was born in the 80s :-) (fb)

  • Adrienne Zedella

    not crazy about this, looks like the purse fell in paint. (fb)

  • Nicole

    I likey… in theory. It wouldn’t be a practical item for me, though.

    The answer is no. For that price, I would pick up one of his many leather bags which may not be as much of a standout in terms of color like this one but still, it’s a tote.
