When my fellow Bag Bliss blogger, Deysa, posted about the Marc by Marc Jacobs Animal Wristlets I thought they were kinda cute. Not something I would use as a wristlet, but I thought they would make adorable little makeup bags. I did, however, question how good ol’ Marc came up with the idea of animal-shaped wristlets. Were they part of something bigger? Well, as it turns out, they are actually part of the Flights of Fancy Collection which is new for this upcoming Fall season. The collection includes handbags, wristlets, coin purses, key chains, and even jewelry.
But wait just a minute! Cute little woodland creatures? Patchworks of fabrics seen in other collections? The Flights of Fancy Collection reminds me so much of Marc’s collaboration with artist Julie Verhoeven back in 2002. Does anyone recall the Louis Vuitton Conte de Fees Collection? Just in case anyone has forgotten, I have pictured below the Louis Vuitton Conte de Fees Beggars Bag.
Hmm… it seems to me that perhaps Marc has taken a little trip down memory lane. What does everyone else think? Personally, I think Marc Jacobs definitely took inspiration from the collection. And although the animals are cute, I think I will stick with just a small accessory and forgo adding one of the handbags to my collection. That mouse key chain is so freaking adorable!
