For fall, Marc Jacobs abandoned all the frills and spectacle from spring, and showed an achingly beautiful minimalist collection that brought to mind the 90's in a dreamy, hazy shade of winter. This long shift dress in a shimmering shade of ice blue is a little bit retro and a little bit from the future. The little taupe flats worn with matching socks and white opera-length gloves are such unexpected touches of whimsy.
The just-below-the-knee length is going to be the new thing, and I'm so psyched because they are totally my jam. The mix of prints in this look is perfectly mismatched. I don't know how Marc manages to inject such a level of secret sophistication and self assurance to his clothes, even when they're so unassuming.
Witchy woman look! Love the sleeve-shape on the shirt and the sheer-striped skirt that I will DEFINITELY try to get in my closet. The look is always slightly-less-than-perfect but in the end manages to BE perfect.
ps. I don't know if I'm ready for pointy shoes to come back just yet?
The sequined pieces were definitely one of the best things about the collection, especially when put against the dark gray jersey(?). Opera length gloves keep moving higher up (no pun intended?) on my list of fall must-haves.
I swear this whole show was like one big love letter. My heart kind of melted a little bit when I saw this dress which reminded me of a dress that was in a Seventeen magazine Prom editorial when I was little. (That sounds horrible but it is actually totally awesome, as Seventeen magazine used to be a totally rad mag with cool fashion, but you know, by that I also mean that it just seems like the kind of thing I wished I could wear when I "grew up" and now I can?!?). I will even suppress my dislike of ruffles to don this dress.
Long hair, a fur and iridescent floor length velvet.
But THIS one, this one was made for me.
I can't get over the beautiful shade of mustard-yellow/green of the sweater and the beautiful degrade effect on the skirt.
Formal clear raincoat with fur collar worn over a long velvet dress.
This is crazyladytalk, you know what I mean? BUT ITS SO GOOD.
It's weird to put into words how much I loved this collection because I think mostly it was all just a visceral reaction. A new girl would walk down the runway and something in my brain would just ache for a weird part of the past/my childhood that may or may have not existed.
