BRIGITTE Marc Jacobs bag
What are your thoughts on the new season Brigitte Marc Jacobs bag?

Saw it on net-porter.com!
I'm thinking about getting it, but I don't think you can put it over the shoulder..

Thoughts?

I'm having mixed feelings about this bag. When I first saw it at Neiman Marcus, I gravitated towards it. I like the tassle thing and the overall shape. I don't know if I like the perferations on it. And I think it would look better with longer handles. Those handles definitely don't look like you can put it on your shoulder, it looks like a slightly shorter handle drop than the balenciaga motorcycle bags.

Just thinking out loud

It's an attractive bag. But you definitely can't put it over the shoulder. I'm just wondering if those "holes" could get old...

I personally dont really like it, it's just not my style. If you decide to get it though and you are in the US, barneys has it online so that you wouldn't have to pay customs and intl. shipping fees

Personally, I think the perforations are too distracting and I think the overall design just does not suit the shape.

But if you really like it a lot, I guess you'll be able to make good use of it?

I liked it when I saw it on Jessica Simpson and generally despise her clothing choices, its a cute bag but it doesn't seem practical, it also seems like something one would tire of after the novelty wears off. Its cute though and the white would be nice for spring/summer but I at that price its a tricky investment.

I saw this bag in real life, its bigger than waht I thought it was. I dont like the design, I only like the classic "speedy" shape though.

I like the classic shape and white is very in now, but I can't say the holes do anything for me (and the fact that jessica simpson carries only makes me like it less).
