I feel like I am going crazy. Well, just a little bit. I keep seeing transparent handbags popping up in random places. Forgive me if I am wrong here, but I thought transparent handbags were dead. I mean, they were never really that popular to begin with. They were a very brief trend, I guess you could say. So I don’t think anyone can really blame me for being surprised. The latest transparent handbag to cross my path is pictured here. Meet the Marc by Marc Jacobs Clearly Bag!
Okay, okay. This IS Marc we are talking about here. He does have a distinctive quirkiness to his style, so a transparent handbag is not completely unexpected. And if anyone can pull it off, it would certainly be him! I wanted to write about this particular handbag because I found it interesting. It isn’t completely transparent, like those transparent jelly totes. The back, bottom and sides are all made of leather. It is just the front and the flap closure that are transparent. Well, I do like the flap closure. I also like the white leather. I guess I am still a little apprehensive about the whole “everyone can see your stuff” thing. Marc seems to have a solution to that though. The interior features some function pockets on the back wall. I suppose if you had any unmentionables, you could hide them in there. This bag looks very light and airy, so I suspect it would look best paired with casual pieces.
