clutch and wallet: marc by marc jacobs 2015
what's the answer to life, the universe and everything? 42.
the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy by douglas adams is one of my favourite books ever. it's incredibly kooky, weirdly wonderful and outrageously sarcastic. douglas adams is a genius. i would often catch myself giggling on the bus amidst suspicious sideways glances. my favourite part would have to be where 2 missiles are turned into a whale and a pot of petunias - "hello ground". i read it aloud once for a public speaking group and people gave me very blank looks.
it's a world where mice are the most intelligent life form, earth has been destroyed by poetry-reading vogons, the most important thing a hitchhiker needs is a towel and my favourite character is a depressed robot called marvin ("here i am, the brain the size of a planet, and they tell me to take you up to the bridge. call that job satisfaction? cause i don't.")
marc jacobs is releasing his resort accessories for 2015 which are emblazoned with the words "don't panic". the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy is an actual guide in adams's book and "has the words DON'T PANIC inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover". i love that marc jacobs has referenced one of britain's great literary icons in his new collection.
my husband is a massive douglas adams fan. every night he listens to adams reading the hitchhikers series to put him to sleep. maybe he won't put up too much resistance to me purshasing the clutch...
