And I've just seen something jawdrop unexpected elsewhere which we'll see later.
Nope its retro alright , retro 90s

The only collection for this line that I like, probably because it resembles something else lol.

This has to be the worst Marc By Marc collection I've seen in years.
No substance whatsoever.

Why even have a show for this? Just send the shipments over to Target and let them handle the advertising.

Indigo Clarke in her ShowStudio review made a tenuous attempt to say it's 60s influenced. (Hurry back Alex Fury). Care to elaborate on why it's 90's?

Rhetorical question. This trying to link everything to the past is a disease of fashion commentary. Sometimes it's unavoidable. Oftentimes it is unavoidably there in a collection or look but a lot of the time, it seems to me, it's just fashion writers attempting to show off that they know a bit of fashion history or because they've nothing else to say. It's a part of the problem. Inducing nostalgia isn't healthy.

I agree. But then you could say the same for probably around 50% of the NYC shows.

I love this look. The rest is quite boring.

Agree with you Wollfolk -feels kind of phoned in or rehashed. I am underwhelmed. Sure, there are pieces I like. But nothing new or groundbreaking.

i think he's still selling the 60's swimsuit, inspired by miu miu spring 2008 & prada spring 2010.

Nothing changed. I feel like I'm seeing the same show from the past years.

Boring indeed, to me it looks a bit like Lacoste collection. Nice colors though.
