New York Fashion Week, Spring 2008: Marc Jacobs


At first glance, Marc Jacob's Spring collection was discombobulated (oh no!). At second glance, it was interesting. At third glance, it was downright creative. Yes, there were hits and misses, but I think the hits make up for any shortcomings.

Though visions of Chanel may pop into your head, the hits were dramatic asymmetrical gowns with floral appliqués, sharp separates and unique mix matched pairings containing sequins, silk and sheer panels. The misses were kinda lame jersey dresses with sports numbers on them, a dress with underwear silhouettes on the outside and a black dress with colorful flowers and ribbons drooping off. But I think in the end, to each his own and some may find beauty in these experiments.

Jacobs dipped into every crayon in the crayon box, from muted retro hues to bright bolds. As well there was obvious lingerie inspiration with visible undergarments, some crazy hats and colorful dramatic gloves.
