Marc by Marc Jacobs Quilted Lydia Lock It Up Purse
Marc Jacobs is at it again! Pictured above is just one of his many new creations. Introducing the Marc by Marc Jacobs Lock It Up Quilted Lydia Bag. It’s big, it’s bold, and it’s… blue. I guess Marc decided to actually go for a color other than dark purple (which, as we all know, is oh-so hot for this coming Fall season). Don’t get me wrong. I think dark blue is a great color, especially when it comes to handbags. However, I don’t feel that the style of this Lock It Up Quilted Lydia Bag is as appealing as the Lock It Up styles of the past. For example, the Lock It Up Magazine Clutch was simply adorable (read about it here: Marc by Marc Jacobs Lock It Up Magazine Clutch). This new style has the same adorable little lock on the front, but I personally do not care for the overall shape of the bag. To be honest, the shape reminds me of the back of a chair (you know, the kind you would find in a restaurant). Yep, this one definitely is different!
The Marc by Marc Jacobs Lock It Up Quilted Lydia Bag measures 13″ x 17″ x 4″, which may be large enough to actually hold a laptop. The bag is constructed of quilted nubuck with contrasting leather trim. And don’t let the cut-out handle deceive you, the top of the bag actually opens up very wide, thanks to its wraparound zipper. It retails for $528.
