When the bigger budget designers tackle a classic and timeless 20th century look, there's nothing quite so effective thanks to their access to luxury fabrics and master tailoring. This Wool Angora Collarless Coat from Marc by Marc Jacobs captures a sixties look that does simplicity with undeniable style.
Sophie Messenger Bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs
Among the satchels and Chanel-a-likes, current designers can often forget the myriad of other retro influences available to them in bag design. Tapping into something a little less seen, this Sophie Messenger Bag from Marc by Marc Jacobs is a cute little piece that will last through many seasons to come.
It's appeal comes from a sweet simplicity, with a bubbly and rounded messenger shape creating a borderline kitschy feeling. In a stone grey leather, the gold hardware keeps the colour palette classic and timeless. With a simple rounded handle to finish, this is the sort of handbag you'll be wearing with everything.
