CINCHED AT THE WAIST
wow! i totally agree, at first glance with the dark hues and mature materials I thought LV but then i noticed the geometrical skirts and funky shoes, but alway always genius.
great images I can see down to every texture,(i feel front row)
February 15, 2011 at 9:33 am
It does have this LV feeling, but then again if I see the bag in that first image I'm like "ahh Marc!". Right?
The decor looks stunning by the way!
February 15, 2011 at 9:34 am
Wow!!!!!!!!Such a perfect collection! Excellent looks!.I would just leave hats and gloves out but all the rest are amaaaaaaaaaazing creations.I can't remember liking Marc Jacobs that much.
Thank you for sharing Scott!
February 15, 2011 at 9:35 am
It had some classical Marc Jacobs elements too it, but I agree… The collection resembles more a LV collection! I am excited to see it now though!
February 15, 2011 at 9:39 am
I was thinking the same, how classy it is and how the little white collar thing accentuates it.Cant wait to see the LVYou my favourite daily read:)

I just love polka dot tights!! Founda pair yesterday .. nothing says 'funky' quite like they do!
February 15, 2011 at 9:43 am
I thought Marc Jacobs' last collection was quite refined and elegant, too. The dresses, the greys, the fabrics, the A-line of the skirts and the elegant pointy-toed shoes. I like this, too. Particularly the play on polka dots.
Definitely interesting. Not sure if I love the polka dots. Great photos though.

Wow! Trust Marc Jacobs to come up with such impressive clothes. I hadn't been that impressed by the New York Fashion Week collections so far, but this one is brilliant. I love the shapes & the way he mixes textures together.
February 15, 2011 at 9:46 am
Beautiful! I love the spots, Marc makes them so refined and elegant!
February 15, 2011 at 9:48 am
Wow. Real clothing. It's almost breathtaking.
February 15, 2011 at 9:49 am
i love this collection!shoes and jacket are awesome!!!
February 15, 2011 at 9:52 am
I agree, but the repetitive dot detailing adds playfulness to it, though. I guess that should heighten our expectations for LV? Hopefully Marc can deliver…but I don't doubt him!
I love you fashion week insight, since subtext is a rarity, so insightful! Amazing pictures Scott, as per usual!
February 15, 2011 at 9:59 am
Uhhhhh….Thats amazing collection
I loved this
February 15, 2011 at 10:00 am
love the collection but I totally agree on the LV feel it has. The only thing I just don't get, are these strange hats(head covers) that you see now in so many shows.
February 15, 2011 at 10:03 am
It looks like to much as a Balenciaga collection…..
February 15, 2011 at 10:05 am
I completely agree the collection is very LV, except some of the pieces did make it a sporty version (i.e. rubber wedges).The show was amazing. From runway setup to music.Thanks for great photos.

Wow, I absolutely agree. I though there is an element of "fun" within it with those circle-skirts. I look forward to more shows to come!

Dots are cool.
I'm loving all the polka dots. So gorgeous.
February 15, 2011 at 10:11 am
1950's and 1960's influences.just beautiful, streamlined, sleek and feminine.it does seem more like an LV collection.
polka dot stockings.the hosiery industry is glad to be back in fashion.
February 15, 2011 at 10:13 am
Genius beyond genius! Loving the dots…happens to be a weakness of mine and he does them in a grown up yet playful way. Thanks so much for sharing!
February 15, 2011 at 10:15 am
completely hated the show. but your pictures are marvelous.http://www.wordbyjessie.comxxjj
February 15, 2011 at 10:17 am
i can't imagine it gets better than this. the details are outstanding.
February 15, 2011 at 10:19 am
Love the tights, love that pink dress with the scale like paillettes. I agree this collection has a very "grown up", proper feel, I usually equate Marc Jacobs with more youthful looks.
February 15, 2011 at 10:20 am
Really liked the sophisticated glamour of the collection, still playful with the polka dots motif everywhere.
February 15, 2011 at 10:26 am
If you could only see one show, I would recommend Marc Jacobs, always in a class by itself
February 15, 2011 at 10:27 am
polka dots everywhereeeeee
February 15, 2011 at 10:28 am
Now, this is why Marc Jacobs is my absolute favorite designer! He took polka dots to a whole different level. That skirt with the large blue sequins (if you could even call them that) is gorgeous. Bravo!
February 15, 2011 at 10:36 am
i love the hats, Marc jocobs brings back the frency classy look :D
February 15, 2011 at 10:42 am
I want to like this collect bc I love MJ as an artist but I just can't. It's not scrumptous enough to be LV and not nerdy-chic enough to be MJ. I don't covet any of the pieces. I don't see an overriding statement. They don't look fun or feminine or even cutting edge. All of the rubber makes me claustrophobic (yes, even the button-downs are plastic). I don't see this collection having the impact on the fashion vernacular that most of his others do. 'Meh" for me. (I think we've been programmed to like what he puts out and we just need to be startled out of our comas!)
Polka dots are in for the fall i guess!
February 15, 2011 at 10:46 am
he's so incredible :)
February 15, 2011 at 10:52 am
Didn't quite get the polka dot hats. Guess it was sort of a gimmick. And while I like the longer hemlines, I'm not too sure how well that would translate on people my size. I'm 5'2"ish, rather slim, but probably won't want to go beyond 1" below the knee…maybe 1 1/2".
February 15, 2011 at 10:56 am
While he isn't one of my favorite designers, I can totally recognize his genius!
February 15, 2011 at 11:08 am
In fact I am a little bit disappointed. Of course the collection is rather LV than MJ but after all the general look is rather old fashioned except the use of new materials & the excellent shots by Scott. Let´s wait for the LV collection.
February 15, 2011 at 11:13 am
i love the polka dots. it's inspired by the japanese artist yayoi kusama. i love her!

I agree this collection felt more LV. But so far this is my favorite for NYFW. I love polka dots and the cinched waist silhouette
February 15, 2011 at 11:59 am
It's great…Finally, it's going polka dots.Its very eseay to add to any look and style.Great idea.
February 15, 2011 at 12:05 pm
Я всегда мечтала побывать на таком шоу… Надеюсь мое желание когда-нибудь сбудется =)
February 15, 2011 at 12:08 pm
Everyone is oohing and aahing over this. Well made, no doubt, but I miss the joy.

this collection is perverse. brilliant

loved this collection, with the polka dots on polka dots and all of the different patterns and textures. definitely agree with it having more of a dressed up louis vuitton look
February 15, 2011 at 1:07 pm
this is a testament to the designer's amazing talent. I'm absolutely in love with the textures, subtle pops of color and silhouettes. Kudos to M Jacobs. I'll be looking forward to creating some inspired pieces on my little sewing machine :)

February 15, 2011 at 1:38 pm
Lol, that's a fun take on polka dots. I hope it catches on.
February 15, 2011 at 1:45 pm
The looks as shown are a bit too LV-ish, but each piece could be taken on its own, combined with cooler bits, and re-contextualized into something interesting. Any of the jackets would look fabulous with tatty jeans and boots; the dot skirts would look great with a plain cotton tank…

good colllection……but not in my style. XD
February 15, 2011 at 4:04 pm
LV goes back to basics on this collection with pencil skirts and polka dots. I find the collection very elegant, simple and wearable. I specifically like the skirt with green circles, because it stands out. I find it innovative but pairing it with another polka-dotted leggings may be overkill.
Simple cuts with great fabric texture and a bit of latex.. brilliant reincarnation of classics.
February 15, 2011 at 4:35 pm
Marc Jacobs is always amazing
February 15, 2011 at 4:59 pm
Looks ridiculous.. Who would want to look like that?

I am in love with this. Genius.
February 15, 2011 at 5:50 pm
Noooo!The edge is there. It is Marc Jacobs, definitely!
February 15, 2011 at 6:06 pm
I have a question Mr. sartorialist:What do you consider great when looking at collections? In specific? I'm just curious
February 15, 2011 at 6:57 pm
LOVE THOSE WHITE BOOTS!
They make the weather right now seem much more bearable (20 deg F with 20mph wind. Blah).

What a strong collection. Polka dots are everywhere
February 15, 2011 at 7:32 pm
I love this you got amazing shots– Marc Jacobs is seriously genius, and I agree with you about the LV comment!
February 15, 2011 at 9:06 pm
love your shots, interesting observation – I've always thought to Marc Jacobs as couture…Annahttp://www.ThisIsAYes
February 15, 2011 at 10:39 pm
really nice, but the dots skirts are actually the same as Marni ones, inclusive Anna Wintour wore them at once.
February 15, 2011 at 11:12 pm
I love all the polka dots. Such a great collection.

February 16, 2011 at 2:02 am
Way too bulky for my taste.I wonder if the ready-to-wear versions will be that bulky too…
February 16, 2011 at 4:54 am
Love the photos and the colour of the collection!
February 16, 2011 at 6:17 am
Funny looking, but artistic!
February 16, 2011 at 7:46 am
Love the 1940s vibe and the use of color, shine and texture. (The pink rubber lizard is kind of a mess, though.) I question the combo of the below-the-knee skirt length with shin-high boots. What's left of the leg on most women is the beefy part of the calf. Not particularly flattering on most women, though it works on these extra tall/svelte models.
February 16, 2011 at 9:26 am
I am slightly worried about the huge sleeves in the first pic. I really hated the 80s and all that huge clothing. I prefer the suit with the fur polka dots (sans the dots). It is tucked and nipped in such a cunning way just under the shoulder.
February 16, 2011 at 10:45 am
amazing collection, it's Marc
February 16, 2011 at 11:15 am
These are the best photos of this collection that display the texture in his garments…
February 16, 2011 at 11:17 am
These are the best photos of this collection– they really showcase the texture of the fabric!

February 17, 2011 at 12:30 am
Dear 82Brute (whose comments I often enjoy)–it's the _muscular_ part of the calf. "Beefy" sounds negative–strength is beautiful! :)

I like the second to last one..
February 19, 2011 at 5:55 pm
Photo #1 is my favorite: dots on purse match leggings and buttons on coat. This feels like the look the designer wanted with the leggings on each model. Cool shot too, lights on foot are lined up perfectly for a stream of dark grey shadow in the middle of lighter grey shadow .
February 19, 2011 at 10:02 pm
MJ is tricky enough to make a"summary" out of what other (actually) creative real designers have produced a season before, find the whole thing a faky-freaky mixture…and fans nod accepting without reflection.
February 20, 2011 at 1:44 pm
wow, quite a lot of repeated patterns featured in all of these looks.. interesting!
