My Fair Marc

Marc Jacobs has done it again with his new collection under his own line. One thing I love about Marc is the fact that he does not care about trends and follows what he imagines women to look like. For Spring/Summer 09, the clothes remind me of Mary Poppins and Eliza Doolittle partying at Studio 54. The collection was very Victorian-style but with an edge. So far, Marc is the only one to use plaid and gaucho-ish pants. He stuck with his signature layered look by putting vests on top of tops on top of t-shirts and what not. But in this collection, it still seemed very refined and elegant instead of the grunge look that he was famous for creating in the late 80s/early 90s. The accessories were absolutely fabulous. I would want to wear that hat forever. And the shoes, although beautiful, looked a bit tricky to walk on. All in all, I think this is the first collection that everyone could wear, no matter height, weight or age. The only thing I was underwhelmed about were his gowns at the end that looked quite matronly. To watch the full runway show, click here and here.
