I have looked at so many handbags over the last year it is like being on a hyper-speed carousel when in comes to picking just one. Well I’ve chosen the Marc Jacobs  Absinthe tote. Like absinthe, its unforgettable and addictive. The quality is typical of a Marc Jacobs…its second to none, personally I have only one Marc Jacobs’ handbag to my name, but it is a collectible, in that it was once owned by Selma Blair, perhaps some of you will  remember when I acquired it as part of the a cancer charity auction on Ebay a couple of years ago. A deep red leather handbag and signed by Selma Blair as well…that said the Ostrich leather gives you that distinctively marked leather, and the metal work is just enough without it looking too much like “bling”.

I only use the handbag for special occasions and then it is put away in its dust bag. I hope someone puts this Absinthe  handbag up for auction this year, I don’t think I could stretch to three and a half grand, mmmmm.

Marc Jacobs at home

Posted in American Fashion Designers by Gregory on September 16, 2010

Marc Jacobs is at home, and as a  New Yorker he is doing his town proud. New York has now seen his SS/11 collection and there is something  here for everyone in this collection. I don’t think there was one piece that stood out as “I wouldnt wear that if you paid me!” I truly felt spoilt for choice in his ready to wear selection.

Marc by Marc Jacobs New Army Handhack Backpack

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on August 22, 2010

When it comes to the great outdoors, I am one who normally grabs hold off my Karrimor daysack and off I go without a second thought as to my “bag”. Until I came across this new Army Handhack Backpack by Marc Jacobs…take a look.

Marc by Marc Jacobs handhack backpack, great outdoors,designer accessories,voulue.comMarc by Marc Jacobbs,handhack backpack,designer outdoor clothing,rucksacks,This designer outdoor clothing accessory retails at around £190.00. So I took a look at several oline camping  stores to see if they carried any fashionable bags that would be a match for the Marc Jacobs. The short answer was no. They had lots of excellant designed and colourful bags, but no retro canvas, stylish daysacks. Therefore, if I was planning a gap year around europe, and having to  travel light, then this MJ would be stapped on my back.

If you prefer, I did find one backpack from Prada, the “PradaVela Backpack”, it maybe what you are looking for, what do you think?

“BANG” Marc Jacobs nude and spicey

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on August 1, 2010

Marc launches his new perfume range “Bang”, and Im sure the launch party also went off with a….Yes, I know, that’s enough!  His new mens cologne will steam up the bathroom mirror on its own. As for Marc, he is as slippery as the preverbial “greased hog” as he poses for the photographer. With all that oven foil it would take long to serve up this dish.

“Add a little spice and pop in the oven for twenty minutes”

Helping  Marc to make the party swing, his guest list  included; Daisy Lowe, Mischa Barton,  Anita Pallenberg, Pixie Lott, Henry Holland, Eliza Doolittle… to drop a few names. I’m sure he had a great tan for the party shots! Though I’m not sure many men would like to look at that image first thing in the morning…perhaps the fragrance is a greater pull!

“Gaga, give Marc the pen”!!

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on April 22, 2010

Marc then adds a little colour and moves graffitti to scribble, at least these bags have been  “designed” rather than an impulsive act, but thinking about it, it could be the other way around. Either way, what do you make of Marc’s “naive” style?

Or perhaps the coss body “Miss Marc Spot” at around £80 is this your thing, cute isn’t it? Maybe your preference is for a cheeky “Mabel Lace Miss Marc,” at £90.00 with a lace print design, giving you a very girly feel for spring.

Whether he is designing for his own label or Loius Vuitton, Marc does know how to turn up the heat when it comes to originality.

From his earlier season of fluffy fox tail bags, I would have expected something similar, but no, he has used long red leather ties at the side.The envelope flap with metal charms set on rings is a nice finish…perhaps its a wind chime!

Comes with an adjustable fabric strap that can be tucked in so the bag can be carried as a clutch.Will this be a summer of Bohemian style, lets wait and see.Width 11″ / 27cm x Height 9″ / 22cm x Depth 5″ / 13cm. Handle Drop 9″ / 24cm.
