Why Marc Why?

I liked what Marc Jacobs did for his own line of handbags, but it should have ended there. Marc cannot apply those same rules to a classic like Louis Vuitton. This fugly work makes me wonder if he's been smoking crack with Whitney Houston. How else can one explain Marc's update to the Monogram Speedy with... perforations! The result is pure fug. The bag looks like it got attacked by a pirhana or should be housing Paris Hilton's next puppy. The perforations looked great on Marc's own Brigitte bag, but the same does not apply to a classic like Louis Vuitton's Speedy.

This fugly bag is available at eLUXURY.com for $1,200.

YOU really hit the nail on the head. It looks more like a bag to carry a dog in than a cool purse. It's completely 100% FUG.

YES it looks quite literally like a doggie bag with the little holes on the side and everything.

Not only it looks more like a bag to carry a dog or a camel:)but what is up with that pocket? It reminds me of prisons for some reason.

you know what the craziest thing about lining in that pocket is, is that is comes in different colors, green, red, hot pink, take your pick. Louis must be rolling in his grave.

eww. I think opinionated made a good point - what's the use in getting these overhyped name brand bags when the knock offs are carried around by every tween and her mother these days? I think I'd rather spend the money on an unknown designer, whose look I liked.

This bag is hideous.
