NYC Fashion Week Show Of The Day… Marc Jacobs


Take a 1940’s cigarette girl combined with a 1950’s lady of leisure, fashion forward her to a high tech future and what you get is Marc Jacobs F/W 2011 collection. Arguably  the hottest ticket of NY fashion week, Jacob’s mainline show  was filled with strong couture references of a bygone era blended with an ultra modern feel.

The key structured silhouette of a form fitting peplum jacket and over the knee pencil skirt can be described as demure dominatrix dressing, ultra sexy in the most modest way. Realized in an array of unconventional materials ranging from rubber, plastic and latex to the classics cashmere, wool and silk, fabrics were enhanced with avant-garde synthetic embellishments to add to the apparent futuristic feel.

Polka dots ruled the collection, offered in an array of sizes, style and  color choices. The juxtaposition of the playful dots worked perfectly with the highly structured precision tailoring. The palette of black brown, burgundy and bottle green served as a fine contrast to the metallic sliver, gold, red and blue bags and boots, while the pillbox hats with an under the chin closure added that final touch of modern sophistication.
