After 16 years of leading Louis Vuitton to the iconic brand that it is today, Marc Jacobs is now solely focused on his namesake brand. The designer’s single-focus is quite apparent in his Fall 2014 collection of handbags. From the exquisite materials and fabrications to the stunning structure and attention to detail, the Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 handbag collection is truly something special to behold.
My favorite piece is The Bunny, featured at the top of this post. (It’s also a favorite of Nina Garcia’s, Creative Director at Marie Claire, who describes it as “touchy-feely” in the August issue.) Constructed from shearling, with a butter-soft lambskin interior, The Bunny is the exact kind of comfort a luxury-loving fashionista needs on a chilly fall day.
I know you’ll also fall in love with Trouble and Big Trouble, featured below. These impeccable clutches can be worn three ways. You can tuck the chain strap completely inside and carry by hand. Or, you can pull the strap completely out and wear it long. But, you can also double the chain strap and wear it short. So really, you get three bags in one!
The strength of the collection can be found in Incognito (below). It’s a modern interpretation of the doctor’s bag and comes in two sizes, in smooth or textured Italian leather. Don’t let the frame of the bag fool you. It’s an illusion. While Incognito comes off very structured, it’s actually very pliable. Didn’t you know that Marc Jacobs is a magician?
While you can carry Incognito by the top handle – and check out the belt detail that you can use to secure the two handles together – you can also attach the included removable strap and wear the bag on the shoulder. According to Jacobs, Incognito was created from a powerful place, but designed in a fresh, non-aggressive way.
Purchase Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 handbags at Marc Jacobs boutiques beginning in August, or you can pre-order them now. Prices begin at $2,000. In Las Vegas, there’s only one place to get them: Marc Jacobs at The Forum Shops, 3500 South Las Vegas Boulevard.
