We’ll whip out our credit cards for Marni, virtually anytime. The shoes, the clothes, the accessories – they mostly make us swoon. We have to literally stop ourselves from clicking the ‘Buy’ button on all the Marni goodies we see. But then we saw this Marni bag which stopped us in our virtual tracks. We’re used to the vintage vibe of Marni – think chunky platform heels; mod dresses in earthy tones; bright, ballooned-body bags. And while this Marni Medium leather bag does fall into the latter category (it’s slightly ballooned), the etching on the front is what throws us off. It’s of a person (not sure of the gender), in what looks to be some sort of swimwear, along with a swimcap. If it was a beach bag, we might ‘get it’. But given that it’s made of calfskin leather, it’s not really beach-appropriate. And we don’t ‘get it’.
What are your thoughts on this Marni Medium leather bag? Haute or not?
