Marc Jacobs Crosby Perry SatchelMarc Jacobs Crosby Perry Satchel

The Marc Jacobs Crosby Perry Satchel is made from grey grained calfskin leather, and trimmed in smoother brown calfskin leather. It has gold tone hardware throughout, including the handle square rings, the textured hammered semi circle decorations on the front of the bag and the round feet on the base.

There is a small, shield shaped tag on the front of the bag embossed with “Marc Jacobs” in gold lettering.

The bag has two top handles for you to carry the bag in your hand or wear it over your shoulder. It has a zip top fastening.

Inside, the Crosby Perry bag is fully lined and there is a zip pocket and a slip pocket.

This bag comes with a Marc Jacobs dustbag.

Measurements: 30cm / 11.8″ x 38cm / 14.9″ x 12cm / 4.7″; handle drop 19cm / 7.5″; all measurements are approximate

Material: calfskin leather

Style note: This bag has a seventies aesthetic and is bang on trend for the new season style towards all things retro. Nevertheless, and somewhat curiously, it also has a streamline aesthetic to perhaps start a new trend all of its own. The two tone leather makes the bag versatile, and it could go well with everything from a smart casual designer jeans and blouse outfit to a smart, tailored suit at the office.

Even though this is a retro inspired style, there is something modern about this bag and its appeal will endure for many seasons. It’s a good looking, modern day retro classic!
