my favorite show from new york so far. the clothes look amazing, I love the styling! I'm not crazy about the footwear, though. the collection feels so 2005, in a good way.

it seem like something new is going on in this collection and it feels like a safe collection too. also; the way the looks are accessorized refers heavily to prada in my opinion.

What I love about Marc Jacobs' collection is that they stand out from all the others, particularly within New York. His stuff is different, he works to different rules, and creates different trends. No typical pops of cobalt blue, orange or red here, no grey fur, no 70s boringness.. I love the polka dot madness, the lace, and the beautiful fitted shapes.

I hate the dots, but I actually hate them anywhere.

Besides, I'm excited for most of this. Gimme some time and I'll love it for sure

I know how important a fixed identity is for a brand and that customers very much like to know what they can expect from a certain designer, but I think that is the special thing about the Marc Jaobs woman: Women change their style all the time - two years ago, I was permanently covered in ruffles and bows, then I had a phase where everything had to be super tight and clingy and then I had a super grandma-style - but Marc changes with them, without losing what makes him in the basis, the core values, so to speak (oh God, I know, my English...)
Though I have to admit that there have been collections that I despised with a passion: the eighties one, e.g., and I'm only lukewarm about this one here, too... But usually I count on him to hit the ball out of the park.
this is a nice referential statement, thanks for posting. this collection is a bit uptown for my tastes (i seem to be categorizing this way lately ) but i can warm up to the ankle boots and quite like boxier looks best.

Blah, too conceptual for me. Others have worked with the same themes and have done it better.

I have a question... why can't the music choice be discused here? Music is a vital part of a show, no? - and part of the 'shock' of this show - I can understand the model talk but music helps to give a message in a collection. Is it just strictly aimed to discuss the garments? ...

NEW YORK — The dress was straight as a die — a strict and slim case for the body. But on its surface were baubles of pattern, as round and voluptuous as this Marc Jacobs outfit was severe.

It is back to the straight and narrow in New York Fashion Week. No more loose and sloppy casual clothes, easy sportswear or girlish frills. Women — grown-up women — are being asked to smarten up.

And they surely will when offered the winter 2011 Marc Jacobs collection. Last season the designer had followed the hippie de luxe trail, rich in color, forged by Yves Saint Laurent in the 1970s.

This time Mr. Jacobs had gone linear, with graphic silhouettes outlined against a shiny runway, where quilted white pillars looked like the columns of a lush padded cell. The outfits were pencil slim — give or take a full raglan sleeve or a peplum — and fell to just below the knee. A helmet, hinting at the 1960s space-age style, completed a look of chic severity that was reinforced by the dark palette of burgundy, pine green, navy, brown and black.

“Strict, disciplined, uptight, everything covered up — I didn’t want the girls to look anything like casual or sloppy,” said Mr. Jacobs backstage. But since he was wearing a rubber shirt and latex gave a dash of sexual perversity to the collection, his remarks seemed ironic.

Despite the sobriety of the cut, it was lightened up with circular patterns that ranged from balls juggling across the surface to pinpoint dots of sparkles and full-on polka dots on the hats. The designer’s skill is to change tack with fashion’s wind, yet make the new look always his own, while setting the compass in a new direction.
