More like 46 years ago... with the stripes and the hair/makeup/eyebrows, this show seemed to me to be obviously inspired by/a tribute to Edie Sedgwick.

I found it entertaining though, and pleasantly trashy. I like the low-waisted skirts with short jackets and bare midriffs.

I just feel like NYFW is reviving a lot of trends from S/S11. Remember all the white? And the stripes were more popular in Europe yet a lot of designers are re-hashing it.

I saw this and immediately thought:

It kind of looks like he didn't even put much of an effort into a lot of the pieces. Other pieces looked over the top. For me, this collection was a miss.

I actually really like this. It's very him of the early-Aughts, taking vintage and making almost a caricature out of it. It's 60s, but in an almost clownish kind of way. And honestly, it feels much truer to what made him a big name to begin with. The lack of theatrics is a nice change of pace, honestly.

It's probably not destined to be my favorite collection of his, and I don't know that it'll wind up being among the best of the season, but I do like it.

I really hope those low waisted skirts don't trend. It looks so vile even on the models who have the body for it.

Oh definitely Edie - first thing I thought of. She was "the girl in the black tights" with no bottoms! Just tights and a top, and the model wearing that look even had the short silvered hair.

I also like your phrase "pleasantly trashy" LOL! :p Somewhat of an oxymoron. Weirdly, too, I think MJ would like it.

Wolkfolk, cool idea about the bar code!

I want to like Marc Jacobs but this is really bad. I haven't loved a collection of his since spring 2007 back when he did pretty vintage things. This is just ugly vintage.

Completely agree. This felt very Marc Jacobs. No crazy theatrics, nothing that took away from the clothes. I forgot where I read this (I think the FB MJ page), but Marc really wanted to convey that you can be sexy without showing an excessive amount of skin. Honestly, I agree. Some dresses had those sexy cutouts in the back, the bare legs, the almost tight hugging striped gowns..it all had a quite subtle sexiness without being vulgar. I loved that someone brought up Edie Sedgwick. The mod 60s/Edie look was absolutely present here, but with Marc's spin. Nostalgic and quirky.
