Editors Note: What sets Nordstrom apart from the rest? -Their commitment to the craft (fashion), and continuing to embrace the specialists they employee with a bevy of onsite product knowledge outlets/training. While visiting the Downtown Seattle Nordstrom Flagship store this week, FYM had the chance to meet an incredible Marc By Marc Jacobs representative- showcasing the best of Marc By Marc Accessories for Spring 2011. FYM delivers their commentary below on a few of our favorite pieces:
This year the brand Marc Jacobs is celebrating their 10th Anniversary. And this years Marc By Marc Jacobs Accessories product-line for Spring 2011 is marvel from conception to completion. Inspired by: Bianca Jagger, the collection features nostalgic impressions- channeling 70's Monte Carlo with lush leathers, warm colors, intricate details and nautical flourishes. It's a contemporary stamp on classic style.
Kitty Saint James Baladine $278:
Available this April the Kitty Saint James Baladine, features refined corners and a convenient exterior pocket (perfect for your phone or other timely items). With classic hardware (Logo Dot Lock) and modern style, the Kitty Saint James Baladine (named after a cat found on Saint James St in NYC) is a sweltering FYM essential for Spring 2011.
High Tide Bangles $58-$198:
Featured on the runway 38 times, these bi and tri-colored, layered-resin bangles are the perfect cocktail party accent to compliment that martini in your hand (FYM prefers the 4-olive Bombay Sapphire Gin Martini, Straight Up).
These High Tide Bangles, and their nautical feel- will create an effortless bold statement in your spring wardrobe!
Blade Bracelet Watch $225:
At an extremely reasonable price for newfangled class, the Marc By Marc Jacobs Blade Bracelet Watch is a versatile timepiece, that works for a number of occasions. FYM is in love with the simple elegance this watch carries.
Totally Turnlock's Backpack $428:
The Totally Turnlock's Backpack came out in February, and is definitely our favorite Marc By Marc Accessory for Spring 2011. Featuring a unique faded khaki-leather, this backpack is a dynamic wonder. Through thoughtful design ingenuity, the backpack with a few adjustments converts into a shoulder bag (perfect for journeys to the gym, followed by a healthy night out on the town).
