Marc Jacobs- What’s In His Birkin?

Although he designs some of the most sought after handbags for his own Eponymous label and for Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs eschews all of them as his handbag of choice and instead carries an Hermes Birkin. Mr. Jacobs famously toted a Birkin on the beach of St. Barts over a year ago while flaunting his toned physique and canoodling with–then fiance–Lorenzo Martone. While carrying a Birkin as a beach bag shocked some and left others feeling oh so bourgeois, Createurs Deluxe begs to ask the question: What was in his Birkin? Here are a few things we think Mr. Jacobs may have stashed into his glamorous “beach tote.”

1. Mr. Jacob’s uniform of a crisp white button down and Commes Des Garcons kilt are at the ready should he decide to go to dinner after a long day of laying out in the sun (Shirt from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Kilt from Comme Des Garcons)

2. Should inspiration strike a journal and set of mini color pencils are on hand to sketch ideas for next season’s collection (Journal from Marc by Marc Jacobs collaboration with Moleskin available at Barneys, Mini Color Pencils from BookMarc)

3. Hydration is key to staying in tip-top shape and maintaining an Adonis like body a la Marc Jacobs (Water Bottle from Marc by Marc Jacobs)

4. Skimpy brief-cut swimsuits are favored by Jacobs and this turquoise speedo is for when the need strikes to wear a more colorful suit (Swimsuit from Marc by Marc Jacobs)

5. A sexy swimsuit and stunner shades are all the outfit you need on the beach (Sunglasses from Marc Jacobs)

6. Even though it will not fit in a Birkin what better way to round out your fun in the sun than bringing along a surfboard you designed yourself to ride the waves? (Surfboard from Marc by Marc Jacobs)

7. Adding a decadent touch to Jacobs’ beach outing, this luscious Louis Vuitton monogram beach blanket is perfect for laying out on while soaking up the sun (Beach Blanket from Louis Vuitton)

8. A pair of flip-flops to keep those perfectly manicured toes from getting scorched on the hot sandy beach. (Sandals from Marc by Marc Jacobs)
