We don’t cover Marni all that often, but many times when we do we praise the brand for their sleek, minimal, and geometric designs. But this bag is a giant purple-people-eater-flop. I’ll give credit where credit is due and say the leather looks nice. Otherwise I am not keen on any design element and the overall appearance is really just silly. It is like a casual yoga bag meets high priced price tag with a weird out-of-place ribbon dangling on the front.
Marni, what were you thinking with your Ribbon-Trimmed Square Leather Tote?
Can you say bag flop? This bag is awkward, oddly shaped, weirdly colored, and ridiculously accessorized. When it first showed up in Net-A-Porter, I remember cringing ever so slightly. It is not that I expect to like every bag I see, but I typically am not confused by them.
The purpley-blue leather is put together in a square shaped tote which features double top handles, an adjustable shoulder strap, and a front compartment. Then there is a black self-tie ribbon dangling haphazardly at the front. The only other positive note I can give this bag is that it doesn’t look awful styled on the model at NAP. Do you agree? Buy via NAP for $860.
