Marc by Marc Jacobs Standard Supply Overlay Tote | Large and Casual Muted Floral Handbag

Posted on: Apr 23

There is something that seems so odd about paying almost $230 for a handbag that has a description of itself plastered on the front. As quirky as always, Marc Jacobs actually chose to have the words "Type: Big Tote" printed on this Overlay Tote.

Of course, fans of the Marc by MJ brand will probably recognize the designer's Standard Supply logo, which has appeared on other items like shopper handbags and cosmetic bags with their own appropriate descriptions. The signature utility-like print is simple and very plain when on a canvas tote, but it becomes something much more on this floral version.

The Standard Supply Overlay bag is not your typical spring floral, though. This is very different than the bold look of the Dooney & Bourke Cindy Tote, which is the kind of print I tend to prefer on a flowy top or sundress rather than a purse.

Instead, the flowers here are much more muted in soft pinks and gray-ish blues. The pattern almost disappears from afar due to the clouded PVC overlay. The coating also makes the tote doubly practical because of its water-resistant, durable texture. It still seems a little strange that a handbag with canvas straps could cost so much, but I suppose it will never be boring when Marc Jacobs is involved.
