Sometimes I find that runway looks can be just that, only suited to the runway, but these are lovely. I can imagine wearing all of these pieces. The lines are lovely, especially the long coats over skirts. These are great photos, and considering that I will probably never see a fashion show in person, it’s fun to experience it vicariously. Thanks!
These styles are very accessible. In fact, photos 1,2 & 4 approximate get-ups that I’ve been wearing for 30 years. Very much a rainy weather/professional, yet relaxed vibe. This has been happening in the Pacific North Wet (s excluded on purpose) for a loooong time. Did Marc Jacobs hop around among Seattle, Portland, London? Just wondering.
I think it is difficult to distinguish whether the egg or the hen was here first.
i.e.: I am not sure whether Marc Jacobs is affected by smart and cool streetstyle (as photographed and brought to the limelight by yours and other blogs) or whether streetstyle has evolved to meet the designer’s view of fashion.
In any case, I think extreme volume is overrated. And this applies to the Marc Jacobs collection too.
I’m not usually a huge Marc Jacobs fan; while I love some things he does sometimes, I can’t say that I’m always across-the-board thrilled, but this was an awesome show. That first look? Head to toe perfect. So fun!
Well, this show is just SENSATIONAL and would want to wear just everything ….. pretty much! The DM style shoes look so cool but you do need to put them with something ultra feminine to get away with the look. Tried them once and felt like a bloke! Here they look just fabulous – might give it another go! x
Anyone else notice how the boot (and maybe shape of the skirt and coat) changes the gait of the models? Look at the length of the stride and the angle of the ankle and knee in the looks 1, 2, 4, 5 – pretty uniform between the models. These are women on the move. Super refreshing.
I remember wearing these looks in the early nineties at Uni – DM’s and your Dad’s old coat. I love the second-hand feel to the way the looks have been thrown together – a look you can replicate at any decent vintage clothes shop if Marc Jacobs prices are out of your league.
This looks like a “real-life” work-up of some of Jacobs’ key ideas from the MJ collection, esp. in the first two photos (cool coats and not-mini skirts in rich fabrics). I like a lot of these pieces, love the shoes, and appreciate Jacobs’ refusal to be tethered to traditional ideas of femininity! (@ Ladyofletters–thumbs up to your comment!)
