Is this a Marc Jacobs Bag?

Usually when one refers to Marc Jacobs, I expect to say how chic, stylish or cute. However, when I saw this nylon tote for Marc by Marc Jacobs the other day, I was speechless. The color was quite attractive, it is a fuchsia-purple that is quite fun for summer days. The actual color is bright than the picture above but not as brilliant as the picture below. Other than the color is attractive, I don't know what else good to say about this tote. Up close and personal, I just want to say why Marc, why?
The tote measures 12 x 12 x 4 inches and retails for $158 which is rather cheap for designer. But, I think I will pass as it will sure be a sale item in my opinion. What do you think, savvy or sloppy?

  1. I adore purple, quite prone to pink too and have a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag of my own too...but I have to agree. These bags are not very appealing and no doubt have a not-so-nice pricetag too!

  2. They look a bit too casual to me. Not loving the Marc Jacabs tote...

    This tote is not attractive at all. You are right, it is a sale item.

  4. Sloppy. Although the shade of purple is lovely.

  5. I saw these at Nordi's too. I think they are ridiculous!!! I mean really...who wants to carry a name brand label such as Marc that looks like a flimsy beach bag?

  9. I would like it if it got really, really tiny and you could stick it in your bag to carry stuff when you need an extra!

  13. It's OK. But I would rather buy something similar at Target.

  14. I have a hang up with quilted bags. I don't even care for the Vera Bradley bags. They just remind me of ...left over material, thriftily being used again as a hand bag. Which is great for other people. But that style is not for me. I would probably use that bag as a craft project bag/tote instead of a handbag.

  15. I think your sale item reference is right on. I'm not a huge fan of these.

  23. For someone famed for designing just what people want, I think he's losing his touch. Nice colour though.

  24. The colour of the bag is really fun, but I dont like the style.. And its so not the chic style of Marc Jacobs.. I also think why would he do this!

  25. Personally I reckon the Marc by Marc Jacobs diffusion line of bags have never been all that', so I'm not surprised this purple thing is on the market.

    Much prefer his original MJ line of savvy bags.

  26. Love the color, in defense of the bag I have to admit that it would be a good gym or beach bag.

  27. Ugh. I'm right there with you. It looks as if someone hunted down Barney the Dinosaur and turned him into a bag.
