MARC by Marc Jacobs Bombay Satchel

Whoever said "A picture speaks a thousand words" was one smart cookie (apparently the phrase is attributed to a Chinese emperor that lived almost four thousand years ago). My reason for saying this is evident when you look at the photos of the MARC by Marc Jacobs Bombay Satchel above. This chic and practical design, qualities particular to the MARC handbag line, is about 99% error free. By examining both photos, you can deduce what I believe to be the 1% that is wrong with the bag. Why did they put that ridiculous padlock on the front of a perfectly fab bag? I don't know, and I don't care. What I do know and care about is the fact that I would have easily added this almost perfect bag to my growing MARC handbag collection if it wasn't for that stupid padlock. Just look at my altered version of the 'Bombay' on the right to see what the bag could and should have looked like. If only I were a designer..... Marc, baby, hire me pronto before your MARC design team starts screwing up a good thing.

    I have to disagree; the padlock is a charming little detail

    I have to disagree also. The padlock makes it a statement bag, young and cute. Without the padlock, it looks like another boring old woman's bag. Having said that, I wish the black bag came with a red padlock, or maybe both red and black (so that you could change them depending on your mood/outfit).
