Marc Jacobs Continues His Handbag Push with Military Vibes for Spring 2015

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Handbags 10

Marc Jacobs is not a man of opaque themes; he’s preternaturally talented when it comes to a lot of things, and among them is letting his spectators, fans and clients know what he’s thinking during his seasonal shows. For Spring 2015, Jacobs clearly had his mind on the military, and the show contained the dusty olives and khakis that go right along with that, down to the bags.

Since leaving Louis Vuitton, Jacobs has put a clear emphasis on revitalizing his once-dominant accessories business, and he’s released several strong bags in aid of those efforts. The familiar one that popped up in this collection was a theme and variations on the Trouble Bag, a simple flap shoulder bag with a signature disc closure. The collection also included a number of oversized silk-satin knapsacks and totes in the style of traditional military bags, and although those supported the theme, they’re unlikely to be big sellers. Check out the full collection below.

Prada Vitello Lux Flap and Double Flap Tote Bag Reference Guide

Other Brands

Introducing the Prada Vitello Lux Flap Tote bags from Prada’s Fall / Winter 2014 collection. The new style appears in two versions, one with a large front flap and two double flaps on opposite sides. The interior on both styles remains the same with a single divider and small interior flap. The interesting part about this bag is that the front of the bag does not have identifying markers of a typical Prada as the logo plate is located on the back of the bag. The front turnlocks do not include the signature brand logo, which is an odd way to position their current season’s newest style.

The double flap tote version is more desirable since the logo ‘Prada Milano’ is featured prominently on the back flap. The bag features a shoulder strap and a single top handle that is fastened on metal hardware making it extremely durable for everyday wear. Check-out the new styles featured in the Prada Fall / Winter 2014 ad campaign.

Modeled the Givenchy Antigona Small Bag Versus Antigona Mini Bag

Other Brands

It’s been a while since the Givenchy Mini Antigona bag was first released earlier this year. There were some errors when it came to the sizing differences when the bag was first reported in a previous post, which has since been updated.  As a result, here’s a better analysis of the differences between the Givenchy Mini Antigona bag and theGivenchy Small Antigona bag.  Pictured is a side by side comparison of the small and mini when carried to get an idea of the differences in size.    Givenchy Antigona Bag Versus

The most noticeable difference is the length of strap, the mini can be worn cross-body at 37″ in length while the small is similar to the classic Medium size where the strap is only shoulder length at 22″.  The option of carrying the bag cross-body is only available in the mini size.  In additon, there is about a 2.5″ difference in height and width that make the mini substantially smaller than the next largest size. The size measurements in inches show that the Givenchy Antigona Mini is also much closer to aCeline Nano bag (ie. 8″ x 8″).

In terms of features, both do not differ very much other than the variation in the strap as the Mini has an adjustable buckle.  The hardware decoration and interior styling remain relatively the same.

This pink version of the Antigona bag is currently available at Lane Crawford for a limited time. Note that the small size is already sold out in the pink.  Also, the prices listed vary as the listed prices from Lane Crawford include all import duties and taxes to the United States as the store is located in Hong Kong.
