Hey guys, seems that I'm excusing myself for the lack of posting quite often these past few months and I'm really sorry about that, but this time I AM going to make amends and I've already figured out how I'm going to do that: tomorrow there will be a fresh new start with Paris Fashion Week! I'm going to report absolutely everything about it (from the first interesting show to the last) like in the good old days! After the Paris craze will be over I'll also go quickly over the notable shows from London and Milan that I've missed, just to keep you also into the loop! But for now until that happens, let's see some more great stuff from New York: Marc Jacobs!
Marc Jacobs, the true chameleon of Fashion Week is back with a stunning change from last year's romantic lines - this time he reinvented himself in a more energetic way with a 60s mod vibe where the main character were thick, horizontal and vertical stripes. The designer described his collection as "a bit of everything that I love - lots of straight lines, T-shirts" and expressed through the subtlety of his show that "young girls need to learn that sexiness isn't about being naked". I really liked his vision and the easiness that is transmitted through his garments: loose T-shirts and dresses, über short shorts, low waistlines, flats and kitten heels and of course the playful Mickey Mouse intarsia sweater. The styling of the models was taking the mod feel of the garments to the next levels with a clever mix between side-swept 'dos, Beatles bowl cuts and exaggerated eyelashes and make-up.
Among my favorite looks were the Mickey Mouse sweater (of course), the striped tshirt, the short brown dress with a ruffled lower part, the white suit with two black lines and the floor length dresses ending the show. Have a look for yourselves at the most interesting looks and pick your favorites:
