Marc Jacobs Snapshot Bag A Closer Look

A crossbody bag in appearance, the Marc Jacobs Snapshot presents itself in a structured silhouette that maintains an almost cuboidal shape. For those who like to travel hands-free and not have a large tote weighing them down, the Snapshot is an option that is compact and most definitely stylish. Due to its size, it succumbs to the category of small bags, but it is so much more!

The Marc Jacobs bag is equipped with two zip compartments, with the zipper pulls opening in different directions and hanging on either side of the bag. Other than adding a playful touch, this tiny detail also helps in accessing essentials stored within easily as it mimics the natural direction in which we tend to open bags. (Remember all those times you turn your bag so that you can have the zip on the right – well this neat trick makes sure you don’t need to!) 

The crossbody bag has chunky hardware details that catch the eye & the light and make sure the small body of the Snapshot is secured to the adjustable shoulder strap. The hardware is engraved with logo details, so if you ever want to just attach the shoulder strap to another bag, you can still enjoy a signature touch.
