I love the Louis XVI shoes!!!!!! Don’t like the Japanese youth hats. Like the tulip shaped skirts on those dresses. All together not so sure. I guess I like. The hats are just so distracting. They make it hard to figure out what the outfit really looks like without them.
Fashion is, as a matter of necessity, about curiosity and the desire for more. If we didn’t have people like marc jacobs who were brave enough to throw out new ideas without worrying about if they are conventionally ugly women would all literally still be wearing corsets.
I would not consider this a “new idea”….
I too, feel there is nothing even artistic about these cloths and the combinations.
Perhaps, putting the collection together like this makes it just seem like a “JOKE”!
I love models background, it semms like lots of papers layers…aaaaaah i wanted to be there to write about the arrangements…
Nice lights for the models and outfits (from different sides) and nice colors!
But soon i will be in Milan fashion week to talking about the catwalks set-up.
at this point, i think he just tries to see what he can get away with & call it fashion–and everyone buys into it, regardless of what it looks like.
seems like he sorted through circus trunks & an old folks’ home for inspiration, & hired Dr. Seuss to be his milliner…
Quelle MESS!! Last year it was MJ knocking off Chanel with quilted bags with chains – now he’s knocking off homeless former nannies, who are wearing their entire closets of Park Avenue grande dames castoffs from the 1950′s, all at once…
I liked this, for a number of reasons. One, the silhouette. I love that tulip shape, wore it in the 90′s and it was very flattering. Two, I love the hats, period. If you’re going to wear them, wear them. Three, his coats are to die for. And finally, where can I get those shoes?
The coats and shoes are lovely, the hats a wild, untrammelled delight. I take it they fold away neatly into handbags, motor car side-pockets and come with personal liability insurance in case you bump into someone and knock them cold.
Over here, we think it may be a parody on Street Style in general. Marc Jacobs said back stage that he took inspiration from the likes of Anna Piaggi and Lynn Yeager. Plus the crumbling castle back drop? Is he trying to tell us something? Could it be a fall in taste on the street? We just posted an article about it.
Miss Patty Pace hits the runway! (Bonus points if you get the 19th-cent lit ref.) I actually mostly like this. The ensembles as shown are OTT, esp the unfortunate Pamela Anderson hats, but I can see the best elements of this collection–gorgeous fabrics, longer structured skirts, funked-up “lady” coats, 19th-c & Edwardian references–translating well into “everyday” clothes. And those shoes… as the young ‘uns would say, squeeee!
Hats are in style… feel free to visit Bonnet based in Portland, OR for all of your chic headwear needs. We now have our own handmade cloches crafted with fur or velour felt. So lovely! http://www.etsy.com/shop/bonnetboutique
it’s one thing to gain inspiration from a cultural moment. it’s another thing all together to produce work that looks like that of a living and working contemporary designer (Vivienne Westwood for at least one). even worse to select materials that make the collection look like a fashion school freshman endeavor.
if you must copy make it better other wise it’s not a swindle – it’s a shame
in a world where imagination is driven out of the collective house and into the cold night this collection stands as a call to arms against the current conservative version of china’s cultural revolution…. good bye mad men
bringing the pimp hats, pimp jackets, and pilgrim shoes back… where’s the cane? the pimp pilgrim- i like how that sounds… in all serious it is however exciting and entertaining and full of textures and layers which are absolutely delicious.
It’s truly inventive in shapes. It’s a couture construction , with large and easy proportions. And also a bit Christian Lacroix nineties inspiration mixed with Victorian period. Today, with Miucci Prada and Ghesqui√®re, Marc Jacobs is once again the best. He gives us new ways to wear and makes us dream.
I agree with une chatte grise; [and the gold shoes are ace]. The clothes are like dolls dress ups in their scale and materials, ie: the scarves.
People calling this derivative or a rip off – would you say the same if it was to your taste? I never read comments like that about more conventional clothes.
I can appreciate the whimsy and art of the coats and hats, but what strikes me is how some of the most lovely and flattering silhouettes I’ve seen in quite a while are buried under too many statement pieces-per-ensemble. The dresses are so purely womanly, and I wish, a little, that they’d been let to stand on their own.
This is, I fear, what happens to a great deal of fashion designers who pride themselves on creating zany collections.
The only cohesion is the uniform, garish chaos of each individual ensemble.
I have never been more disappointed nor appalled.
Interesting. I like it. I like the era he’s drawing from. But this is very “through the looking glass”. The size of the hats and the shawl with gigantic stitches and gigantic pin reminds me very much of dressing up Barbie in clothes from the “craft bazaar”.
Those hats are soo Pamela Anderson & Tommy Lee. They wore those all the time. The hat maker is Ivy Supersonic, ivysupersonic.com The shoes are very 80′s “New Romantic” movement. Very John Fluvog from that era. Not a fan of either of these looks.
I am loving this collection! All of the textures put together make for a warm look! I can see where people can think that the hats are too much but I actually see it as a statement peice along with the shoes! Marc Jacob really did an amazing job!!!!
Hello! Does anybody know where to buy these hats? I’ve looked high and low, checked the Marc Jacobs website and no luck! Please if anyone knows, please let me know! I LOVE the hats….thanks in advance, Letia
