Designer Marc Jacobs may have gone quite serious for winter 2011 with plenty of grays and other neutrals in classic cuts, but with his 2011 Spring and Summer handbag collection he adds shots of color that will be more than welcome during those gray March days that precede the sunshine. Styling is still very classic, and many of the choices have a definite Chanel influence, but colors are bold and unexpected. Here are three great choices.
The Paradise Vera bag can be worn as a long shoulder bag or a cross body bag, and it’s not too big, not too small. It’s available in a lovely Green, as well as Black, Blush, Taupe, Cloud, and Fuchsia. It’s not too soft, not too structured – in other words it’s perfect for most of us, and has lovely touches like studded details, and studded zipper pulls, that keep it from going full-on prissy.
The Baroque Sullivan bag is Marc Jacobs’ latest take on the classic quilted flap bag, and it has a long gold chain for a strap. You could wear it year round in any of its colors: Black, Blush, Taupe, Cloud, or Yellow. This is the type of classic bag that you can add to any outfit from jeans to date wear and have the confidence that comes from carrying a bag that totally rocks!
The Day to Night “Single” bag is a quilted flap bag too, but it’s the flirtier sister of the Sullivan bag. With a long gold chain strap, it can be worn as a cross-body bag or a long shoulder bag. You can get it in luscious colors including Black, Blue, Blush, Bright Pink, and Purple.
