Marni Patent Leather Bag: Love It or Hate It?

The clothes and accessories from the designer label Marni are very hit or miss, often veering between truly unique and frighteningly weird. This Marni Patent Leather Clutch Bag, available for $1,269 here, is no exception. On the one hand, I think it's stunningly original in the way it combines shiny khaki leather, white piping, and a tortoise-shell chain strap. I particularly love the big, button-like clasp that dominates the front. But the purse is also pretty unorthodox in its look, so I'm wondering: Do you guys love it or hate it? Tell me what you think below.

As a kind of piece for decor, kinda like it, it would be something cool to be a conversation starter, but it looks like it would be uncomfortable

Hate it. Too much shiny, clinky stuff going on here.

I don't like this at all, but I am not a bag freak either. BB the price is right below the pic, it's $1269.

It's okay. I do love patent leather and chain handles, though. But, for the price (not really I'm assuming it is expensive...don't have time to check in the middle of a manicure again) plus, I really don't like the tortoise (sp) links.

Love the bag and the idea of the tortoise shell, but I'm not a fan of chains on my bags...

Ummm, yuck. But, the patent leather can look cute on some bags, like the Beijo bags. ~Bonnie~

take out the metal links in the strap and it might be more appealing

It's ok... wouldn't lust over it by any means. ----------- “Buy me a dream: Shopping for clothes isn’t about the things you need, it’s about the woman you’ll become when you wear them.”

This purse just looks like it will make too much noise.

Hate is such a strong word, but the handle is larger than the body of the bag. Dislike it. Peace
