Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail! Hippty hoppity… oh wait, I guess Easter isn’t on it’s way. Oh well, you can’t blame a girl for trying. Just looking at the clutch pictured here puts me in a bunny-loving mood. Meet the Marc by Marc Jacobs Rabbit Clutch!
Marc Jacobs has long been known for his love of animal motifs. From Louis Vuitton to Marc’s very own diffusion line, animals have always managed to find their way into his designs. Personally, I have always enjoyed all the animal motifs. I think they are adorable! However, I am feeling particularly partial to this lagomorph-themed clutch. After all, I have a soft spot in my heart for furry little bunnies. So, of course, I was immediately drawn to this piece. Made of cowhide leather, this clutch is basically the cut-out silhouette of a rabbit. You can see his feet, his ears, and his bunny nose. He has an enamel eye that stares back at you, much like a real rabbit would. Marc must have wanted to add a little extra expression to his face, adding some embroidered streaks surrounding the eye in almost a sunburst pattern. It looks a bit unusual, but it really makes the eye pop. I suppose you shouldn’t expect anything less from Marc.
