I should admit right off that I'm something of a Marc Jacobs loyalist from way back in the Perry Ellis grunge days. But his eponymous line almost always exceeds my expectations nonetheless. This ladylike Minetta bag is a great example of where his design sensibility is at right now.
The gray-brown leather on the Minetta is really interesting. It's something between a dusty brown and a mouse gray. There's something old-fashioned about the color and its combination with the diamond-shaped quilting that is super feminine and also really wearable. The slight texture and gloss make it instantly sophisticated.
The Minetta's shape is also really old-fashioned. Not in a stodgy sort of way, though; it's just got a lot of old world charm. The triangular shape is well-balanced by the dual straps, and I love the convenience of the short hand strap combined with the longer, more elegant chain and leather shoulder strap. The luggage-style clasp is both beautiful and secure.
The only possible drawback I see in the Minetta is that while the color is versatile, the style is a little bit limited. This is not the kind of bag that will pair well with hard, edgy designs. This is the kind of bag that looks best with sweet dresses and granny boots. At $1,295, you might want a purse with a few more options, but you certainly won't find anything prettier for the price.
