Marc by Marc Jacobs put out a line of vegan faux-ostrich bags.
Slowly, but surely we are getting there. *

I'll take this one:

It took me a few minutes to get over the fact that they look like ostrich, but once I was able to approach them as vegan, I love, love, LOVE that one.

It is more that Marc Jacobs is expensive than the PVC.

ETA: I like a lot of MJ stuff, but I have to admit that ever since he did that ludicrously funny Bang ad, everytime I see his name, that's all I can think of:

That just doesn't scream "take me seriously as a designer!" does it? Then I imagine Ralph Lauren posing for his own cologne ads like that and get the giggle fits. Or, worse, Lagerfeld.

Ooh, I love Marc Jacobs. Too bad I can't afford to buy one of those purses right now, hah.

YES! Apparently he lost a fair amount of weight and then spent a great deal of time in the gym whipping himself into shape and has been extremely pleased with himself ever since (justifiably so, but that ad is so vulgar and over the top, I think that we get to laugh at him, especially since I doubt he cares). See, he even included a tag line at the bottom of the ad to make sure that you know it is him.

Am I the only one who is unusually terrified at the idea of a real ostrich bag? I had no idea there was such a thing!

I know! I have to assume that ad is all in good fun... because if it's serious... well, it just can't be!

I saw the bags last week. I wish they came in different colors. 7 or so years ago he did velvet bags, I bought one but I was not in love with it...
