Marc by Marc Jacobs Rubber Bag Collection
Marc Jacobs has released a small rubber bag capsule collection for spring/summer 2012, comprised of three traditional silhouettes; a backpack, a duffle bag and a tote. The pieces in this range juxtapose fabrics in the way of high quality rubber and fine mesh, with each style available in two colour ways of an on-trend blue or a gritty smokey grey. Overall, these contemporary designs are well in keeping with the often experimental Marc by Marc Jacobs off shoot brand.
The mesh on rubber combination creates a snakeskin like effect, whilst simultaneously offering a tactile element. The backpack features padded straps/back and a chunky plastic zip, adding to the already practical nature of the bag. The duffle and tote bag on the other hand, come complete with two fabric handles.
Whether you opt for summery tote bag in blue or a durable year-round duffle bag in grey, they are all striking investment pieces that are built with practicality in mind. Priced between £85 and £105, the range is available to buy at both Oki-ni and Mr.Porter.
