At first glance, I didn’t realize that the Marc by Marc Jacobs Nylon Q Percy Crossbody Bag wasn’t leather. Now, I’m sure that would be clear in person even if it’s not immediately obvious in photos, but the advent of an attractive nylon bag always piques my interest and brings to mind many questions.

Chief among them: how much is a nylon bag worth? Would you use a nylon bag every day, or just when the weather was bad? When you think about buying a non-leather bag, are designer names important anymore?

Marc by Marc Jacobs Nylon Q Percy Crossbody Bag

One thing is clear – Marc by Marc Jacobs has done a great job of making sure that the material isn’t too shiny or chintzy on their new nylon line. The finish is matte and the colors are on the dark side of medium, so they look a tad more luxurious than a bag made out of a synthetic material would otherwise.

Because of the easy design (the soft gathering is my favorite part) of this little bag, I could see myself using it more often than I would most nylon purses – maybe not every day, but more frequently than just when weather allows it. I would love if it were closer to the $100 mark, though. Buy through ShopBop for $138.

    It’s okay, but I wouldn’t buy it. It’s a shame it’s nylon, I would generally avoid that material when it comes to handbags (accessories are okay, obviously). I agree the price should be a little lower too.
