Runway Report: Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2010

For spring 2010 Marc Jacobs presented a bright, fun collection of the lower-priced Marc by Marc Jacobs line.

Models donned huge bunny ear bows in their hair, not unlike those in Jacobs' fall 2009 show for Louis Vuitton and as worn by Madonna in the brand's ad campaign. Explained by hair maestro Guido Palau backstage, the look "is a Fifties up-do with an Eighties edge."

The same could be said for the collection itself—a lively cacophony of color and mixed prints (dots, spots, plaid, gingham and tribal). Looks were for the most part polished, hence the Fifties, with an oversized sweatshirt here and denim jacket there, obvious Eighties.

Marc's girls were pulled together, in the most charmingly mismatched way, wearing shades of blue and red neatly cinched in at the waist with striped belts. Accessories are always important in this show, and Jacobs didn't disappoint with metallic wrap sandals, colorful pop jewelry and a parade of shoulder bags.   

The Marc by Marc Jacobs guy was, as ever, looking very cool—this season in rolled pants, blazers and printed shirts and wearing great velcro-strapped deck shoes in teal and clay.
