Walking past Marc by Marc Jacobs today at Ngee Ann City I spotted this sitting in the window display: the Marc by Marc Jacobs Sophie (SGD890). Looking like MJ’s answer to the PS1 and the Alexa, I am glad the similarities ended at first glance. Staring at it for a good five minutes, I noticed the subtle differences.
Firstly, it is rounded around the bottom, a nice curve that gives it a really cute butt profile. The top handle is also adjustable, meaning you can either make it short to hand carry it, or longer to tote it over the shoulder. What I like most is the long adjustable tri-coloured strap, a nice touch to an already interesting bag.
Measuring almost 32 cm across, it’s a satchel that’s worth a second look for F/W10. Check it out in Black and other colours at either Mandarin Gallery (the flagship) or Ngee Ann City.
