Undoubtedly, anyone claiming to be a part of the fashion set has likely watched one particular film: The Devil Wears Prada. We all have our favorite scenes from the flick, but for the sake of this story, only one is top of mind. About 38 minutes into the movie, Andy Sachs meets her boyfriend Nate and friends Lily and Doug at a bar bearing gifts. As she doles them out, she lifts a Marc Jacobs Mercer Blake bag above her head, to which Lily replies, “Gimme, gimme, gimme.” The film may have been fictional, but it encapsulated the fervor surrounding the brand at that time.

In honor of that, we’ve done a deep dive into the brand’s history to identify the 18 best Marc Jacobs bags. From archival versions to newly released pieces, these styles are sure to make you say “gimme” out loud too.
