Snob Essentials

Madonna “Material Girl” Bags


Madonna’s “Material Girl” collection available exclusively at Macy’s August 3: I’m not buying it. The clothes I can actually see on young girls as they have some definite stylish appeal, but it doesn’t look like Madge and Lourdes spent too much time on the accessories–at least where the bags are concerned. Granted, nearly the entire collection is priced $12 to $40, so for that I will cut them some slack. Maybe I’m a Bag Snob and would rather spend my $20 on a suede eraser to maintain my saddle shoes, but I was expecting something a bit more visually appealing in terms of the accessories. Is that big metallic bag supposed to be a yoga bag? A gym duffel? It remains a bit unclear how the bags sync with the clothes, which have a much clearer cut correlation to Madonna’s iconic outfits over the decades. But, alas, it’s not my dollars Macy’s was after in investing millions into this project. I have no doubt the tween market will eat this up.

  1. Since this collection is for JUNIORS, I won’t be purchasing anything. I saw some of the clothing online. It’s defnitely for teens. It’s a perfect price point for them and their parents. For real adults, not so much.
