One of my faves, Marc Jacobs, debuted his Marc collection in London this time around and it was a sweet finale to London Fashion Week. Why London? Possibly to celebrate the opening of his first London store ? I think so.
With models resembling urban ice-skating princesses, this collection got my Spring-anticipating self back in Winter mode. Some Fall trends showed up: plaid , fur, velvet and grey , while Marc added his own youthful flair with pom pom berets and cozy layering. Warm woolies and Nordic prints are sure to be bestsellers as well as adorable, yet grown up, coats. The color palette managed to be both warm and cool; textures were mostly heavy but an ivory silk lightened the mood. I don't think the cropped high waisted pants (especially with suspenders) will go over as well as say, the flirty pleated wool skirts or hands free bags. Although Selma Blair looked pleased, sporting a platinum-do in the front row. A chili pepper tailored dress with tied belt was a standout and I am a sucker for toggle closures and cropped sleeves. Oh! And check out the cutie patootie ice-skating-esque boots.
