    I thought this collection had a lot of different sources of inspiration.
    There were trucker-chic jackets,a bit of Grease-lightning,
    tromp l'oeil sweaters and cute artschool silhouettes for the boys and girls.
    Again,easy clothing that look like it was just grabbed out of the closet... :wub:

    Sometimes it felt a bit rehashed, but overall I liked this collection, the women's much better than the men's. Some of the mini-coats, like the last one in trean's plate, are just completely adorable. :eek:

    This stuff is cute, but somehow doesn't say "designer" to me. Seems like stuff you could pick up and put together for much less, I'm sure, than he'll be charging. I do like a lot of the styles. Very "indie" which I personally really like, but again, can be put together yourself.

    I totally agree with you. Nothing really stood out in my mind as being from a top designer. I could pick up a lot of this stuff out of my own closet or a local vintage shop.

    i agree w/ everyone else about the vintage appeal, but ive always felt that way about the marc line. honestly every season, watching his show is like watching my closet on a runway. [ i wear mostly vintage ] even down to the quirky little details. all the looks remind me of loner girls in school.
    a lot of trendy girls who buy the marc line are the ones[not all] who missed out on the whole grunge-sonic youth movement, which marc reminds me of.
    [he was actually in a sonic youth video ages ago!!]

    i really loved the jackets though! the undersized leather jacket :wub:
    i also liked the checkerboard looks [ retro punk---also with luella :? ]
    i think marc always has a whimsical, quirky collection which i always think is cute :wub: 8)

    I've always adored marc by marc jacobs, but...this collection just didn't do anything for me. so sad, because I always anticipate his collections. I don't like the colours, and the prints just left me cold. :| granted, there are a couple of cute things here and there, and at least it's better than his fw 03/04 marc jacobs collection... :cry:
