I just don't think you're trying, Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs has been designing handbags for Louis Vuitton and has been credited for breathing new life back into the line. And granted, he has made some amazing contributions. But lately, he just seems to be phoning it in.

Take his latest creation for Vuitton, the Manhattan bag, aka the Sac Bowling:

Sultry Uma pose notwithstanding, I can't help but notice the resemblance of this latest bag to Marc's own successful line of handbags. Take, for example, his ever-popular Venetia bag:

Really, Marc, did you actually expect us not to notice this? Did you just think to yourself, "Well, everyone likes this two-pocket look, I'll just do it in monogram canvas and it should sell like hotcakes!" Well, sadly you're probably right, but I'm watching you, Marc Jacobs, and I'd better see some improvement ASAP!

    It's incredibly similar to the MJ Blake bag too. The first time I saw it I though "Wow, even LV is ripping off Marc Jacobs." Doy. But really, did he just sleep-walk through that design or what? "Blah blah blah, top handles, blah blah blah, doctor bag, blah blah blah, front pockets."
