The Marc Jacobs Mood In 2009

Call us boring fashion conformists but Louis Vuitton (by Marc Jacobs) and Marc Jacobs were two of our favorite collections from the Spring 2009 season--Marc Jacobs is king of creating an aesthetic motif that crosses both of his lines without so much overlap that they feel part of the same collection. Because he is so skilled at creating these threads between collections, and because his collections are so often well-received, it feel likes Jacob's dictates the fashion language for each season with Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton anchoring both sides of the spectrum. 

What's lovely about his mood this season is that, unlike Fall for instance, there's a great deal of mix and match that consumers can continue to play with. This opportunity couldn't come at a more appropriate time as many of us, from all incomes, will have to swap out our more expensive purchases for more affordable ones.
