Marc Jacobs has an extremely extensive style repertoire. Somehow he manages to run the gamut between edgy elegance and ladylike traditionalism without ever sacrificing something signature. This Billy handbag is a great example of a more minimal Marc Jacobs.
Smooth-grained navy leather is sort of the epitome of classic to me. It's as dark as you can go without going black, so it has the benefit of being both versatile and also conservative. I'm not always a fan of conservative, but preppy looks like this can add great punctuation to edgier styles. The straw tassel adds a tiny pop of color to the look without making it too much.
The small size of the Billy is right in line with the trends. That's right, ladies, bags are getting smaller. It's good news for your aching shoulders, but bad news for women who refuse to give up the kitchen sink. In any case, the size of the Billy makes it perfect for throwing over your shoulder or across the body without weighing you, or your look, down at all.
At $950, the Billy is a little bit pricey for its small size, but it's so beautifully made and timeless that it doesn't seem exorbitant.
