Marc has dropped the bomb
I have been busy uploading new images from the latest collections to TFS , you know, I am as eager as everyone else. Nothing beats Day 4, looking at the schedule it has to be one of the biggest days with Herrera, Thakoon, Peter Som, Proenza Schouler, and wait for this… MARC JACOBS.
The inspiration seems to be an old Hollywood movie (can’t remember the name but…), the biggest hints are the hats and the checkered shirts. What ‘modernizes’ the entire collection are the accents of metallics and the bold stripes definitely add youthfulness. All the looks are very strong, very wearble… many individual trendy pieces were ensembled into a statement look. I like the fact that he is not doing what many other designers have been showing so far at New York— no chiffon, no pastel colours, no girlie dresses… it’s just a very solid collection.

Can’t wait for Marc by Marc Jacobs!
Stay tuned for more reviews.
