Now this is the way to update a design that really doesn't need it. The Groovee Q Satchel from Marc Jacobs' MARC line is the sort of bag that survives season after season without the need for much revamping except in the area of color or finish. However, the subtle yet fun addition of metal nuts and resin beads as tassel pulls is genius. The new embellishments elevate the design to a new level of sophistication. These decorative elements are sure to be a hit among MARC handbag lovers (like myself!). The price is still right at $500, but I do have one major criticism (what a surprise). This bag does not, I repeat, does not need a canvas shoulder strap. Ugh!!! No way. If it ain't leather, don't bother with it. Just shove it somewhere deep inside your closet or give it to your dog to play with. The superfluous strap is Jacobs' way of saying "I had to stick something totally unnecessary on this bag, you know, just for giggles". Other than the strap, this new version of the Groovee Q Satchel is golden and an excellent investment. Available via Net-A-Porter.
