Marc Jacobs Alice Bag
In reference to the Marc Jacobs Collection, nylon isnâ€™t the most popular material found coating his handbags. The majority of Marc Jacobs exclusive handbags tend to be made out of smooth and distressed leathers. Look what I recently discovered; itâ€™s a totally different couture newbie. One of Marc Jacobs’ latest design is the Alice bag, which happens to be a piece off his Pre-Fall 2008 collection.
Unlike most of Marc Jacobs leather pieces, this handbags body is made out of nylon, (with an exception to the leather handles, straps and linings). I strongly believe that nylon is a tricky material to apply on handbags and other accessories. It must be done â€œrightâ€? in order to grab attention. Whether itâ€™s giving the handbag a bright fun hue, adding pleats or spicing up the bags silhouette, if the handbag fails to have some type of character, then it will succeed as just another simple boring nylon bag.
Two sets of handles allow versatility in carrying this bag. Do you Bagistaâ€™s remember the S/S 08â€™ Marc Jacobs â€œranaâ€?? If so, the glittery-eyed frog is back, found right in the middle of the roomy Alice. Discover the Alice in simple black nylon (which has an extremely sharp look to it) or in the light hue of grey.
