We’ve all heard about the drama surrounding Marc Jacobs recent spring 2008 show, and still the designers designs can seem to cut a break. Fully Chic is reporting that British customs seized a black patent vinyl Marc Jacobs handbag charm in the shape of a gun. It measured 14cm long, and was seized because “it contravened some new terrorism law.” Apparently a Giles Deacon for Mulberry bag charm shaped as a mace was also seizure in a separate incident.
First our handbags supply of lip glosses are to be held in a small clear baggy, along with other beauty essentials for a long haul international flight, now our designer bag charms are coming under inspection? It’s a good thing that when I went to the US last month I had no bag charms on my Chloe bag then. Not that I own a gun shaped or mini mace bag charm. One can dream.
