Marc Jacobs’ uncanny ability to correctly guess today what people will want to wear tomorrow has brought him success and admiration since his student days at Parsons in the 1980s. A celebrity in his own right, this New York City-based fashion designer and bon vivant is known as much for rebelling against the fashion establishment as for reverentially referring to beloved styles of the past. As part of Marc Jacobs, his signature high-end fashion line, Jacobs offers a collection of handbags that epitomize taste, quality, and big-city sophistication. Those who seek the ultimate in luxury will adore the Prince: a sleek 100% ostrich bag with a five-figure price tag (Jacobs also makes a significantly less expensive calfskin version) and an interior roomy enough to hold a change of clothes. Other popular Marc Jacobs bags include the quilted lambskin Stam and Little Stam bags, the leather Victoria structured tote, and the Bitty — a classic crossbody purse with a fold-over flap. Even more bags are available through Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jacobs’ diffusion line.
