I have just realised that first letter of the brand name of my Bag of the Month so far matched the first letter of the month it was featured in. April was for the Angel Jackson sweetheart and this Marni tote stole the spot in May.
Why, after my long-winded speech on discovering new and unknown, I went for Marni?
I love the brand and its quirky and playful attitude to fashion. I feel this is how everything great is made – the process seems effortless and the result doesn’t need numerous magazine editorials to be appreciated.
This tote, crafted from soft calfskin leather, is a great example of what I call an investment buy. It’s simple, but not boring. It’s eye-catching and memorable, but, unlike some well-known brand bags, isn’t epidemically carried by every “fashionista” and celebrity, so it neither hurts my eye nor causes allergic reaction.
I love this tote.
It’s sophisticated and timeless.
And currently on sale.
Which makes it absolutely, 100%, totally and utterly perfect.
