Marc Jacobs’ Uptown Grunge

Marc Jacobs returned to his grunge roots for inspiration this fall. The result is a surprisingly fresh mix of his new high fashion status as head desginer of the largest fashion conglomerate in the world and his old street punk sensibility. Who else could make flannel could look so chic and elegant? He showed it all with ladylike handbags with a rock n’ roll edge and we love it! The tortoise shell chain details, subtle hardware, and exotic skins like rich suede and python make us wish we could bypass summer and go straight into fall. It’s obvious the boy genius who was once fired from another large French Fashion House is having the last laugh. It may also be the reason he saves all the best for his own line and mocks the “House of LV” with the crap he doesn’t want.

    I agree, it’s as if he is kissing off the LV brand. Hm.

    And these bags are looking better than the past seasons!
