I love Marc Jacobs! And I love his diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs! His designs are always so fun and quirky. Season after season, I love checking out his latest creations. Nothing really surprises me anymore and very rarely do I see something I don’t at least sort of like. What can I say, his quirkiness kind of grows on you! Unfortunately, this appears to be one of those rare occasions. Yes, I definitely found myself raising an eyebrow when I gazed upon the handbag you see pictured here. Meet the Marc by Marc Jacobs Regine Velvet Drawstring Bag.
What we have here is a classic drawstring bucket, something I would normally say you can’t go wrong with. But something about this bag just isn’t doing it for me. Perhaps it is the color palette that is throwing me off. Or maybe it is the velvet. I don’t know, for some reason I just picture an old rug that has been unraveling. This bag definitely isn’t for me! However, that doesn’t mean someone else won’t find it charming. To pull this bag off, I’m thinking it would fit in best with a 1970′s retro look. Perhaps a floaty top in the same color scheme and a pair of broken in bell bottoms will bring out that Marc by Marc Jacobs charm I have come to know and love!
