Marc by Marc Jacobs is personally one of the top shows I get excited to see during New York Fashion Week. Marc Jacobs seems to never disappoint, and he continues to top himself season after season after season!
This season Marc showed a fantastic 40s/70s fusion for both guys and girls for his Fall 2011 collection. It was sort of the more laid-back and effortless long-lost sister of his Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 collection (http://dressingupindaisies.onsugar.com/Marc-Jacobs-Spring-2011-RTW-Highl...). Like the previous collection, the Marc F/W 2011 collection showed amazing high-waisted pants, big floppy hats, and adorable jumpers in fun prints.
While mixed with an element of the forties, this collection fused the bold with the classic, fitted shirts with long skirts, and modest basics with a 70s sexy appeal. While flipping through these looks my mind just screams,"WANT, WANT, WANT...WANT!" This collection is so modern and so on point with what I think is going to be on trend this fall. It's so freaking cute in a sort of upscale Urban Outfitters-y way. The collection had a lot of fun and flirty pieces, but they all had FLAWLESS proportions and were worn in a very cool-girl, I'm-not-trying-too-hard way. And that goes back to the 70s-inspired attitude that Marc Jacobs did and excellent job of capturing for his show.
I couldn't talk about this collection without giving praises to the men's clothing. I LOVED the sweaters, coats, and awesome shoes that Marc dressed his boys in! Like the girls, the boys clothing was modern and urban, while still giving a stylish salute to past decades. Everything in this collection just pulled together and flowed so nicely from look to look. It was a perfect follow-up to last season, and has proved to be one of the most cohesive, modern, and wearble Marc by Marc Jacobs collections yet!
