With all of the weird and wacky designs that I have seen by Marc Jacobs over the years, it is not surprising that I have become somewhat desensitized. Whether it’s the quirky Miss Marc or splashes of neon colors, Marc Jacobs has never been afraid of thinking outside the box. I really admire him for his creativity and boldness. But this appreciation that I have for the Marc by Marc Jacobs line never really prepared me for what I stumbled upon the other day. Can you believe it? A very, very normal-looking handbag has made its way into Marc Jacobs’ diffusion line.
Introducing the Marc by Marc Jacobs Hexi Lafayette Hobo! This lovely bag features a classic hobo shape and signature turnlock closure. I really love the washed leather, which appears to have been polished to give it a gentle sheen. The shape of the bag has been accented beautifully with asymmetrical seams.
Oddly enough, it is this feature that reminds me of Kooba. Hmm… a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag that sort of looks like a Kooba? Sweet! And although this may not be the first normal-looking bag to be featured under the Marc by Marc Jacobs name, it certainly is the most beautiful. Well, okay, the most beautiful I have seen anyway! I think it would make a wonderful everyday bag and it is certainly worth a second look!
The Marc by Marc Jacobs Hexi Lafayette Hobo can be found at Saks Fifth Avenue! It is currently available for Pre-Order in Storm Cloud!
