Fendi may have started the odd and offbeat bag craze of last year, but that doesn’t mean they have a monopoly on curious characters, zany faces, and outlandish creatures. Marni has always been known for their way with quirk, and this faux-leather shopper is quirky in a really good way.
Yes, it does look like something the boy drew me in first grade (maybe that kid was on to something)…which makes it even more endearing. It also has a dash of Picasso’s anatomical asymmetry and illogical logic thrown into the mix. With a smattering of magnified polka dots and a flipside that’s good, old plain black in case you aren’t feeling flamboyant, this isn’t fine art. It’s fun art. And at this price, it’s a totally justifiable trendy splurge. Marni Girl Print Faux-Leather Shopping Bag at Neiman Marcus for $340.
Pair with: Contrast patterns without looking cuckoo with Theyskens’ Theory’s skinny-stripe black-and-white pants. On NET-A-PORTER for $295.
