Termed a modern ‘classic’ by the SA from the Marc by Marc Jacobs boutique at DFS Scottswalk Galleria, I guess I never saw the beauty behind this bag till I chanced upon it for myself yesterday. Yes it was plain-looking, with very little bells and whistles, but for those amongst us who choose to be wallflowers, this may be the perfect bag. The quiet admin girl who secretly wishes to be as colourful and loud as her colleagues in Sales. The newly working graduate who wants a bit of luxury without attracting too much attention from her frugal parents. You get the picture.
Perfectly slouchy, the soft and supple grained leather hobo measures 32 cm by 36 cm. Retailing for SGD870, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Totally Turnlock Faridah also comes in Elderberry, Cranberry, Blue and Neon Green, besides the one in Cream shown above.
But if you are none of the above, and want something on the ‘wild side’, check out the very cool and very hip Marc by Marc Jacobs Tote-ally Graffiti Tote. This coated canvas tote is currently not available in Singapore yet, but when it comes I will be sure to check it out. Measuring 48 cm by 25 cm, I just love the enamel logo plaque in Red. Don’t you?
