Native New Yorker Marc Jacobs began his design career in 1981 when he attended Parsons School of Design. On the evening that Marc Jacobs was showing his senior collection and receiving some of the school's highest honors, a fashion executive in the audience took immediate notice. The conversation that followed led to the creation of a partnership based on two very simple concepts: a love for fashion and a commitment to quality.
Two years later, Marc Jacobs ventured out and designed his first clothing collection bearing the Marc Jacobs label. In 1995, he launched his first full collection of men's ready-to-wear clothing. 2000 saw the launch of the first Marc Jacobs handbag collection.
In 2001, Marc Jacobs and his business partner, Robert Duffy, introduced their secondary collection, Marc by Marc Jacobs. It was established on the basis of providing a collection of comparatively affordable, edgy, and retro-inspired mass-market pieces. Since then, the collection has continued to grow exponentially to include Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes, Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags, Marc by Marc Jacobs jewelry, Marc by Marc Jacobs eyewear, Marc by Marc Jacobs hair accessories, and Marc by Marc Jacobs watches.
Each season, the Marc by Marc Jacobs collections are created with the aim of providing quality shoes, handbags, accessories, eyewear and watches with high fashion designs incorporating the signature quirkiness and unique sense of style that Marc by Marc Jacobs has come to be known for.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Francesca
I usually carry a bag a few times before I write a review but this time I just couldn't wait. This bag is fabulous. It is simple, well-designed and keeps it's shape -- I love the pleating at the bottom and the shape the bag has when the clip is fastened. However, I do not like the bag with the longer shoulder strap or with the clip unfastened. The strap seems a little too thin for such a large bag, but I don't carry bags crossbody anyway so for me it is a moot point. The pebbled leather is scrumptious, and I hope it holds up like the leathers of the older MbMJ bags. I got the bag in Reef Blue, and the color is great for spring, but it is saturated enough that the bag can be carried through the fall season. Be aware: the Reef Blue in the Zappos picture looks a little washed out (on my monitor). I had to look at the bag on another website to get an accurate depiction of the color.

I have been carrying this bag for almost a week now in the color Faded Aluminum (soft dark gray). This huge bag is gorgeous and VERY sturdy - the rolled handles are TOUGH. It's made of a very soft pebbled leather and slouches nicely. The handles make the bag very versatile (has magnetic closure to expand it and has the ability to clip together to make it smaller). I like that it's very roomy (almost looks like a slouchy suitcase) and can hold a lot. The bag itself is 3 lbs, which at first I thought was way too heavy, but the whole bag is pure leather and the hardware is a little heavy (brass). I use this bag for everyday, work, school, going out, anything. At the heaviest, my bag weighs 7 lbs. But the comfort of the bag makes carrying this easy. Price is a bit hefty, but I can assure you that this bag will last for a long time to come. You pay for what you get, and this bag, with its size, and quality, is very much worth the price.

Gorgeous bag - but it's huge! I went back and forth between the Fran and the Francesca, and ultimately found that while the Fran is more attractive (because it's smaller), it didn't fit everything that I needed to carry with me. I bought the Francesca to use for work travel, so I need it to be able to hold everything - laptop, notebook, iPad, chargers, magazines, wallet, phone, etc. And it does, and still snaps closed! I use it with the shorter straps and it's comfortable even over a suit and winter coat. For me, the main con to this bag is that there are not enough pockets inside the bag for little stuff (my laptop and phone chargers, gum, lotion, etc), so I have resorted to putting that stuff inside a big ziplock bag and then putting it into the purse! Not so classy, I know, but I am still trying to figure out a better solution that doesn't cause me to dig around for 10 minutes trying to find things at the bottom of the bag. It really only has one little zipper pocket and then the pockets for your phone and keys - which is not much for such an expansive bag. The other con is that after using it for only a week, I already saw scratches in the leather. It's beautiful leather (and granted, I am taking this bag all over the place, on planes, etc and am not super careful) but I was sad to see that the leather had already scratched in a few places. All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and think it's a great looking bag that's very functional for work.

I got this bag from my bf's parents and I must say I LOVE IT. I am 5'1" and this big bag isn't too much for me. I have it in black, and it fits everything: a computer, iPad, binder, etc. all at once. I usually use a Longchamp bag but I love this one so much more. It has held up extremely well without wear and tear and still looks brand new. I get complements on it every time I wear it. I love that you can wear it over the shoulder with the short straps or long strap or just hold it in your hands. The only negative thing I would say is the beautiful leather makes it quite heavy--but well worth it for it's gorgeous look. Do not hesitate because of money as all of my MBMJ bags have lasted me forever! Buy it you won't be disappointed. :)
I'd also recommend: Longchamp, Michael Michael Kors, Cole Haan
