NYC Fashion Week: Fall/Winter 2011: Marc by Marc Jacobs

So mad that I am just now getting to post NYC fashion week started last week and I had major computer trouble. But I am back and with a vengeance...Starting with Marc Jacobs, my future husband, Walking into the Marc Jacobs show tonight, a retailer remarked, "We have to come here in order to find out what we'll be seeing next season." His point: The lush colors and Lurex that have been everywhere this week were inspired by the ode to the 1970's Jacobs delivered last time out. Well, come next fall, you'd best prepare yourself for plenty of polka dots, a good deal of latex and lace, and a much more fitted silhouette. Backstage, Jacobs himself said the new collection was a reaction against the loose, fluid feeling of his Spring outing. "I wanted something strict and severe," he said.

A collection about sex appeal and creativity out of this world. And truthfully a Marc Jacobs show is truly a history lesson. I love the latex pieces, I want them all. His use of texture and shine in the fish-skin looking skirts are just marvelous.
