They came and they conquered. The Marc Jacobs boutique at Siam Paragon was packed to the rafters early this evening as women thronged the average-sized space for the fall launch of MJ’s new accessories, namely bags.
The Stam was, as expected, a big draw. This season, it came studded. You’d think there’s enough hardware on the original bag, but, judging by the women clawing them, there could never be too many metal parts. The Stam, introduced in 2005 and named after the Canadian model Jessica, who is allegedly Mr Jacobs’s good friend (hence deserving of a bag in her name), is considered by many women as one of the top ten classic designer bags. Enough reason, I suppose, for Thai trend-followers to must own at least one.
Classic status aside, why any pooying would desire a bag that is quilted like another truly classic bag, with similar gold chain for a handle, is quite beyond my ken. The mind truly boggles.
