It’s not as if Marc by Marc Jacobs is not worth mentioning. It’s just that its bags lack imagination and always feel like an afterthought. Take this saddlery bag for example, it’s not bad for the price, is in sync with the current trend of military messenger styles (especially the ever so popular PS1 bag and Mulberry Alexa) but it just doesn’t do it for me. Something is missing and I can’t quite put my finger on it (though the giant plate on the front flap we could do without). The only thing I can come up with is mediocrity; which, in my book, is worse than being bad. At least when you totally suck you’re evoking emotion in me, this bag is neither here nor there. We’ll just call it blah and leave it at that. What do you think?
