Marc Jacobs Suede Flower Handbag
Can you Bagista’s recognize this handbags creator? Apparently, I couldn’t, and unless you already know, I bet you all are wondering the same thing. Meet the Suede Flower Handbag by Marc Jacobs for his Collection. Are you ladies somewhat shocked to find out? I sure wasn’t expecting this bag to be by Mr. Jacobs, I mean, he truly is a fashion genius! Now, don’t jump into conclusions, I don’t hate it nor do I think its ugly, I just find it a bit plain. Marc Jacobs never fails to express his likes for flashy hardware and sophisticated silhouettes on his handbags, so when I came across the Suede Flower Handbag, it seemed a bit on the opposite side of his recognizable ingenious works. This bag seems a bit flimsy and rather boring, definitely something I can pick up at a thrift shop, not at a premium designer boutique. The combination of smooth grained leather and suede gives off a vintage vibe, that I’m not even sure that I’m feeling. Amber is the only color you can find this handbag in, which isn’t too appealing for my likings, and as for the price tag, the $1,495 retail price is nowhere convincing for this Flower bag. What do you all think, do you like the Suede Flower Bag?
