Swag Talk: Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Perfect Fall 2012 Handbags

by on September 22, 2012

Every time I’ve walked my way through Bloomingdales’ handbags department, I’ve been consistently impressed by the sophistication and elegance of Marc by MJ’s Fall 2012 Handbags & Accessories collection.

The rich colors, genius color blocking, and mixed-materials seen in Marc by Marc Jacob’s Fall handbags really drew my attention to the collection. I wouldn’t say that I overlook Marc by MJ, but I will admit that I try to steer away from the brand because of how intensely popular it’s become. It seems like everyone and their little sister has either a MJ backpack, tote, cell phone case or other accessory. I can’t say I’m surprised and have to admit that I’m a supporter as well – MJ’s cute colors & designs have basically taken over the chic school bag & tech accessories market. This grown-up, ladylike collection is what’s on my radar at the moment, though.

Some of my favorites from the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 handbag collection.

I love the functionality of these beautiful bags – they’re roomy enough for the girl-on-the-go to hold her notebooks, iPad, and change of shoes while still looking extremely chic. The snakeskin-texture on so many of them is another selling point for me, as it makes them look that much more luxurious with a hint of exotic. Last but not least, the fact that all of these come with a cross-body strap is brilliant, making them even more effortless!

These are all in-or-around the $500’s, give or take a fifty or so, and available over at bloomingdales and Nordstrom. Check out the full line and be sure to tell me what you think of them!
