(please excuse our pics taken from the 7th row — we tried our best!!)
We couldn’t believe our luck, that we were able to actually be at Marc Jacobs’ show (again!!) this season, and felt even luckier when, for two seasons in a row, the show started at a reasonable time – about 20 minutes after the “start time”! What was first observed was a column of mirrors, domino style, on the runway — we know this was going to be spectacular right off the bat. Marc didn’t disappoint — the initial vibe was circa 1910 granny/Pollyanna/My Fair Lady/Little House on the Prarie chic, which evolved to more complex, eclectic looks. Ruffles, bustles, butterflies — oh my! These were the major trends we saw, alongside lame’, and the continuation of quilted handbags. There were Harlequin-style oversized sequin pants, sweet printed shirtdresses, and florals paired with ever so bold horizontal-striped skirts. The new body part du jour is the hip, and Marc made sure to make it the focal point with thick ribbons to do the cinching, geisha-style, while everything else ballooned above and below it. So ladies, get those waists ready, because what Marc says, goes.
