Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2012
New York Fashion Week
Marc Jacobs transformed the stage into snowy ruined castle for his Fall/Winter 2012 presentation. With such an impressive stage, it is obvious that the King of New York Fashion Week has something interesting and unique to offer. To be honest, I’m not sure where this collection came from. Marc Jacobs normally keeps his garments refined and on trend, but this was totally unexpected. At times I thought I was watching a collection by the great John Galliano. I’m not sure if any one else thought this?
Marc had no limits with this collection, he wanted to go for the “wow” factor and this he achieved. With an array of luxurious textiles such as jacquard and brocade, floppy hats, oversized outwear and fur accents, this collection was certainly flamboyant. The silhouettes throughout were very loose and there was many layers to most of the garments. Marc typically paired cropped pants with an oversized coat for example, then paired the outfit with shoes to match the garment. The palette throughout matched the style of garments, including ruby red, gray, black, pink, blue, purple, almost every colour in fact.
Accessories were very eccentric, including shoes with crystallised detailing or buckles, floppy hats, and gloves. The hats were the main focal point in the accessories. There was zebra print hats, leopard print hats, and hats in all sorts of colours and textures (mostly fur).
Overall a collection for the fashion-brave, not really sure if this is classed as “ready-to-wear” but there are a few pieces I would wear if I was a woman (and had the confidence).
