Marc Jacobs brings the spirit of 70s at New York Fashion Week Fall 2011
Marc Jacobs is doing it to us again. Yesterday, the designer presented his uturistic-meets-ladylike main line A/W 2011 NYFW collection, which is typical of his unique design aesthetic — something old made new thanks to his eclectic fashion references and wild imagination.
Prim polka dot skirt suits were given a futuristic makeover via high shine wedge moon boots, floral lace appliqué peplum skirts were worked back with furry clutches, rust coloured lace dresses worn with industrial looking gardening gloves and patent breast plates, and disc-linked pencil skirts were dressed down with lurex zip-up hoodies.
After his main collection, it's his Marc by Marc Jacobs runway show that's giving us goose bumps today.
Jacobs sent his women to work in the '70s, with calf length skirts, long sleeved shirt dresses, delicate knits and a muted colour palette.
Accessories include brown stacked-heel oxfords with tassels, wedge shearling booties, bags in every iteration, from hobo to bucket and sturdy leather top-handle, plus clutches shaped like books. The colors were burnt orange, mustard, bottle green and camel with some refreshing retro prints.
