One of the biggest trends for spring 2011 is the mash-up of a flat and a platform. Everyone from Christian Louboutin, to Marc Jacobs, to Prada has made them..and surprisingly, they have been flying off the shelves! So what is the fascination with these bulky, slightly awkward "flatforms"? I'm guessing they must be wildly comfortable, and they do look sort of cute with short spring-y dresses and shorts...but the flatform fad just comes across sort of puzzling to me.. What do you think??
Denim and chambray are both huge trends for spring 2011! Trendsetters are beginning to pair denim on denim to create effortless, chic daytime looks. What do you think of this denim on denim craze: fabulous or faux pas??
Gold glitter platforms, loose maxi-dresses, high-waisted silk pants, and a psychedelic color palette- all making up one of my favorite Marc Jacobs collections of all time.
This season Marc Jacobs took a total 180 from last season's collection, with exciting, lively, and 70's inspired pieces. I am in love with the glamorous easiness of this collection. The girls all look so amazing and electric, but they still have that 70's laid-back attitude. Marc mentioned, "I was at Naomi Campbell's birthday party in Cannes and all the girls wore these long dresses, and after dancing all night they hitched them up to the waist."
This collection obviously took its inspiration from the type of girls he encountered in Cannes: Girls that wanted to go out and have fun, and wear something that is just as glamorous and fabulous as they were. Thank God playfulness is back this season! I can't stand it when fashion trends get in too much of a "classic" rut. Leave it to Marc Jacobs to bring something new and daring to the fashion world after a season of seeing far too many camel sweaters.
