Although I'm sure he has tons of assistants and sub-designers working for him, Marc Jacobs created two collections for Fashion Week, one for his eponymous line Marc Jacobs and the second for his other eponymous line, Marc by Marc Jacobs. Both collections were beautiful.
The Marc Jacobs show featured pieced of polka dots and lace (not together!) that defied attachment to any particular era. The basic silhouette, though was high-waisted pencil shirts and full-sleeved tops.
His collection for Marc by Marc Jacobs was true to its form, featuring more playful, colorful pieces inspired by '70s silhouettes. The collection feels somewhere between Mrs. Robinson and Ali McGraw (Love Story) to me. And there was something for the boys!
And you gotta love this matching pair!
