Ok, for the most part I'll give it to Marc Jacobs as being something of a genius. Not in a smart way but in a razor sharo way. He (well, his people) have read the market well and consistently deliver exactly what the customer wants. he has got to have the most diffusion lines on the market right now AND he's still creative director at Louis Vuitton (more on that later)
But the huge (its huge, I can easily hide behind one) metallic tote is only $64!!! And that's why people will buy it.
Metallic totes, look like foil and feel like rubber but at $48 and $54, what do you expect. And the interesting thing is I'm sure it's going to help boost sales of Marc by Marc Jacobs...which is targeted at younger people. Who doesn't love a bargain? But the key factor is who doesn't despise cheap cack with a passion?
