Marc by Marc Jacobs Staples & Studs Large Satchel
Now isn’t this interesting? Leave it to Marc Jacobs to put staples on a handbag! Introducing the Marc by Marc Jacobs Staples & Studs Large Satchel. It is Marc’s lasted interpretation of the punk-chic look. All I can say is that it’s… well… um, different. This large black leather bag features stud detail along the top and sides and a huge tassel zipper pull. And no, that isn’t a zipper running down the front of the handbag. That is actually a row of staples that is straddling the center seam. Personally, I would never carry this bag. At best, it offers a look that one might call “unique”. But I just can’t get past those staples. The studs? Sure. But staples? What happened Marc?
The Marc by Marc Jacobs Staples & Studs Large Satchel is huge when it comes to satchel standards. It measures 15″ x 12″ x 5″. The bag features rolled double handles as well as a detachable shoulder strap. What puzzles me, however, is how one would actually use the shoulder strap. The handles don’t appear as though they fold down. They actually look like they would be in the way. This bag retails for $528.
