2009 Fall New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs went back to the future for Fall. His color shock collection can best be described as the future . . . in the '80s. You follow? Aside from the news items leading up to show — the downsizing in invites and just saying no to celebrities — the show went down as so . . .

Pepto pink ponchos, jagged edges, shiny jewel tone pencil skirts, comical brocades, cutesie florals, suede thigh high boots, and enough folds, pleats, and oversized shoulders to fill a hot air balloon. Oh, and each model had her own unique beauty look. They looked like characters from a comic book, at times over-the-top, every time entertaining. When you dissect, there are some wearable pieces, but together they're severe. Pants were tapered and pleated, tops were cut out and couture-like, and dresses were stand alone statements. Like me with the '80s, it's a love/hate relationship.

Personally, I adore MJ's collection/runway show, as usual. The clothing was bold yet when broken down, can easily be worn (with confidence otherwise it will fail.) Images 3, 5, 8 and 17 are my favorite looks. Yet there are seperate items from each look I would kill to wear (the thigh-high plum boot!). His show was fab. :love:
