I really don't like this. I just do not think that any woman wearing this on the street would be looking good. I don't think it's money in the bank this time for Jacobs. But I liked those final dresses though, not that I see anyone wearing it

it's like the bigger and sloppier marc jacobs himself looks, the more disjointed and frumpy his clothes become...these clothes are as disappointing as the chanel offerings from fall...and i can't imagine who this appeals to (and why would he invite li'l kim to the show when there's NOTHING she'd even be seen in court in)...where's the attitude we saw last season? those two pics kimair posted say it all.

Yeah, pretty boring stuff until the evening section. There was not one distinct look that defined the season. No highlights.

Aside from the usual vintage vibe, Marc Jacobs is however pretty ambitious with volume this season. He experimented with amorphous jackets, circle skirts, and most notably, short gowns with pleats in candy colors. A little Oscar de la Renta, esp. Erin Wasson's gown.

His FW collection was much stronger (though still can't quite compare to the European greats). He seems to do FW better anyway. There was a school girl themed collection back in either 2000 or 2001 that I really dug--nice cuts, wonderful blend of retro and modern influences, and the style is consistent and very Jacobs.

yes, sure. i see that but it was just the first that came to my mind. the looks just look a lot alike. even the shoes does from a distance. i think they're horrible btw.

Doesn't he have a habit of building up good collections, good years and then sort of pi$$ing all over it in a follow up collection? Like the very weird 60s mod collection? This could just be another attempt of his to relieve the pressure...it's almost as if he's saying he doesn't really want to be...legendary, he doesn't want to be the trendsetter and the yada yada yada that fashion makes him out to be. But it's so very odd, I went to the store recently to check out those new gowns and they are wonderful; nothing brilliant going on in the tailoring or the construction but they're still great, MJ pieces. This new stuff doesn't hold up but MJ is far too...intellegent (?) to flip flop like that without it being on purpose.

I loved this...the colors were so beautiful

all of the sparkly jackets/dresses/skirts were nice & great for mixing up with jeans etc. the cocktail dresses were just gorgeous

hate the shoes

I agree that it's shapeless, the clothes just don't flatter the models' bodies. But I love the dress that Angela is wearing.

of course the show wasnt spectacular, i think he should work more on his presentation 'techniques' but some of the clothes (mainly the skirt numbers and the evening dresses) are absolutely adorable.
i can certainly see all the links mentioned above (more Marni than Dries in my book and true, a tiny touch of CDG) but i dont mind, i really dont.

loved the shoes but i would wear them in more unexpected colour combinations if i had a chance..

sum up> it will sell like hot cakes, in europe it will

I adore the sweaters and the skirts. And the colours are perfect as well, as are the shoes! (as always). I do however think that Marc seems to be getting a bit lazy. More and more it seems to be the case with him that I can just buy an item of clothing and keep it for the next season, only dye it another color.
I still love his clothes though, but it just seems to be getting less original each season.

i liked these: and the layered skirts. not much else though. it really is unoriginal knockoffs of everyone else's designs w/ a bit of alterations.

I just read in the Instyle issue Marc Jacobs saying LIL KIM is his muse!?????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!????????

I am still in a state of shock. And no it's not a joke. The article is about the Fashion Group International's night of Stars awards Gala. Marc Jacobs selected Lil' Kim as his muse. I am quoting Marc's words: " Not a day goes by that I don't listen to Kim's music in my design studio. She's an inspiration."

He also added:"Getting an award is one thing, but I feel like the prize of the evening was escorting Kim to this event."
