It has been a long while since I covered anything from Marc by Marc Jacobs, since besides the bags from the Classic Q line which I fell in love with many years ago, everything of late has been rather ho-hum. And if they weren’t blasé, they were made for a really young audience, what with too many prints and too many colours happening altogether at once.
Now for the good. With Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley now firmly in charge of the American brand, here’s hoping they bring back the fun and the whimsy while also taking it towards an audience that’s more young at heart as opposed to just young.
Which brings us to the subject of today’s post, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Heart To Heart Quilted Leather Shoulder. Looking like the lovechild of Chanel and Moschino, the 23 cm by 20 cm heart-shaped bag isn’t half bad; part-biker chic, part goth-romantic and all whimsical fun, the leather bag is lined with burgundy fabric and comes with a really long sling that allows you to wear it across the body.
Priced at GBP405 and now available via Net-A-Porter, you’ll also find a decent selection of bags and accessories via Shopbop which ships internationally as well. Just one more thing. For a brand that’s all about being affordable, is it just me or have prices at MbMJ risen quite a bit over the last few years?
