it's just celebrities jumping onto the latest designer piece without actually knowing anything about it. you know she's probably hot as hell in that material, since it's meant for fall winter closets, so you know it's a thicker fabric, and it's spring right now...

^i'm sure she's faring just fine on that oh-so-torturous walk from the car to the inside of an air conditioned boite. and beyonce regularly wears runway pieces and attends shows so i think she knows more than most who'd criticize her....i'm just sayin'

while i see all of the reference points here, from the perforation we just saw at cynthia rowley by way of prada, to the architecture of balenciaga, to the japanese influence (that some say he borrowed from in spring/summer 2008), to the polka dots we've seen all over fashion, one must get one thing clear: marc jacobs revels in the mash up. he loves getting under the skin of everyone who takes fashion so seriously that they hold the canons of particular designers as sacrosanct as if those self-same designers don't borrow and re-work the wares of others. scroll back to the prada fall/winter 2008 lace collection, you'll find people comparing it to *shock/awe* louis vuitton, boudicca, christian dior, giambattista valli, anne valerie hash, and helmut lang. and when you saw the lace pieces in the stella mccartney collection and the dolce and gabbana collection, people said they saw the prada collection in it. but let's face it: NONE OF THESE DESIGNERS INVENTED LACE. no one these designers originally thought up to cut a dress out of it!

the genius of this collection remains that it flies in the face of every sacred cow we have in fashion right now. it's not minimal. it's not seventies. there's no hint of austerity or studio 54 or the amish or the yves saint laurent retrospective. and for that reason alone, it's fresh. find one big city woman who can't use an attention grabbing pencil skirt, a perfect pair of fashion pants, or any other number of the genius staples he put forward here. the only thing slightly off key were those boots, but they remain so out of step with the rest of fashion i'm sure they'll become must have in their own right.
Huh..... you made me totally rethink this collection.

hunni when you break it down you break it DOWN FOR THE KIDS!!!! I love your commentary as always.

Point of clarification though... I do think there's a tad bit of Amish reference in the collection.

But yes I also think Beyonce knows a bit more than what people think and of course there's Ty to help her
