    Smile Marc Jacobs Castoro Beaver Shoulder Bag


    Marc Jacobs and his collection makes it on my top three of my all time favorite designers. Most of his goods are a win in my book… and then there is his “other” stuff. Feast your eyes on the Castoro Beaver Fur Shoulder Bag, a piece that arrives as freaky as any fur bag could possibly get. Although a handbag with fur on it would never make my collection, I can admire a piece that’s reasonably attractive for its exotic appeal… but this is simply horrid. This style is definitely wild and needs to remain in its natural habitat or at the zoo and away from the runway. I can’t find anything attractive about this piece, and the attempt to create a masterwork by combining a classic flap design with padlock décor and beaver pellets is quite bothersome. Where to carry this chained beaver to? Definitely not in my neck of the woods, but even if there was an appropriate place to carry this to, with the $2,250, the Castoro bag would be the last piece I would consider splurging that much on. So ladies, what is your input on this fur piece, and would you actually carry this?

    To be completely honest I don't have a problem fur bags, but this one is just not my cup of tea.

    I would never carry a fur piece .

    While the workmanship of the bag on the leather handle and flap is beautiful, it looks like taxidermy. A gutted animal turned into a bag

    Ugly. I hate it when a beautiful animal gets killed and their fur wasted on such awful bags like this one. It makes me cringe.

    I don't like it. But I'm not too big on fur either.

    I'm not a fan of fur. Especially on tacky bags like this one.
