Glancing at Marc Jacobs’ appetizing new collection feels like a cheerful trip to the candy shop. Rather, the snob’s candy shop! For the Spring ready-to-wear season, Marc displayed a plethora of cellophane-like PVC, transparent gingham, and off-kilter pastels down his rock-a-billy-chic runway.
Now the bags have arrived to lift our spirits, with the same young, fun-loving attitude in mind. I always love his classic quilted chain bags for young girls. The Baroque ($895) is the cool alternative to a trademark Chanel bag, especially in spot-on hot pink (a must-have color this season). Marc also proves colorblocking is not going anywhere. The chain-strapped Brighton ($1,495) looks refreshing in blue hues and metallic gold – and I didn’t even recognize theVenetia ($2,195) in its new dual-toned incarnation!
But what really gets my sweet tooth going? My absolute favorite is the Sojo Victoria ($2,995), a wonderfully clean-lined hobo that comes in white, yellow, and blue. But it’s most certainly the mint calf-hair that steals the spotlight and incites a craving. It is so fresh, in more ways than one!
