Clean-lined and hardware-free: Marc, is that you? Since he crept out of grunge-era Perry Ellis (seems like a lifetime ago) and rose to his position as one of the biggest American designers of all time, Marc has done it all. From the fancifully frivolous to the purposefully dowdy to the witty, irreverent, and not-so-wearable – and now? The Violet shoulder bag, delivered with perfect restraint and in solid-good taste.
I feel like as I age, Marc is growing up alongside my own preferences. This bag doesn’t stand for expressing youthful zeal but a sense of quiet, understated elegance. And I’m all about it! Thickly blocked lines serve as the perfect base for olive, black, and cream color-blocking. A symphony of ease, with a palette of neutral colors that will last you through the heat of the summer and back into fall’s crisp breezes. On Net-a-Porter for $1,595.
