I don’t know about you, but I don’t use the word “perfect” lightly, particularly when it comes to handbags. It’s a superlative of the highest order (redundant, I know, but go with it) and should only be reserved for objects that truly achieve some sort of harmony of design. Does this bag meet that burden? I’m not sure.
Based on the name, though, the designers sure seem to think that the Marc by Marc Jacobs Saddlery Perfect Purse does. Sure, it’s cute and functional, but perfect? Not so fast, my friends.
This bag does not venture much in the way of challenging aesthetics or unorthodox ideas, so in that regard, it seems to achieve all of the goals that it presumably set out to attain. I don’t know if that means it’s perfect, but a handbag blog probably isn’t the place that you want to have a very heavy discussion about the nature of perfection and whether or not it exists (does our consciousness of imperfection prove that perfection has to be out there somewhere? Maybe!). So I’ll say this: it’s perfectly cute. Buy through Saks for $278.
