    Ok This may be a little odd, but I was wondering what kinda of glasses Marc Jacobs wears? Also does anyone know where I can find them?

    Thx a lot! I had emailed the company before I asked you and this is what they said:

    Hi Jared -
    Thanks for your email. Marc's glasses are vintage Cutler and Gross. I
    believe he found them at a Paris flea market. In case you're not
    familiar
    with the brand they are sold at specialty boutiques and your best bet
    would
    be to try to their website. They did launch a vintage shop a couple of
    years ago.....you never know.
    Thanks and good luck.

    Please let me know how the skirt with the red velvet trim looks in person ... :flower: As far as I can determine, there is no Marc Jacobs trunk show happening here for me to see it myself :(

    Caffeine and Kimair - please report back from the trunk show. Let us know if you've put your name down for any of the pieces...I would be curious to know how much some of the coats are - in particular the grey cashmere side tie coat with the leather skirt detail.

    i went to the trunk show in sf this past weekend, and many of the pieces were stunning in person...:heart:

    i forgot the lookbook today though, so i can let you know prices tomorrow...
    the pieces i tried on were: (all pics from style.com)

    silk velvet floral skirt and taupe cashmere turtleneck

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    silk panne velvet leopard print dress; metallic leather skirt

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    the cashmere dress (on diana) i loved, love, loved!! :wub:
    i do remember it being a bit pricey for what it was though...not sure if i'm going to get it...

    overall the collection was gorgeous in person...no models, just clothes hanging on the racks...
    i was also very impressed with the evening gowns (the last few looks from the show)...there was a woman trying on the strapless gown and she looked divine!

    Thought someone might be interested in what I learned about the skirt I kinda liked ... it's not silk velvet, but rayon/silk blend velvet, $3200 :smile:unsure:smile:, the red is a true red not burgundy as it appears to be from runway pix, it also comes in black felt/brown velvet, and it's a faux wrap skirt. Also, you must be an established customer for them to send you anything on approval. Otherwise, it's store credit only ... quite a potentially big one in this case ... :huh:

    i'm definitely not fond of all the hot pink and gold leopard silk or velvet? dress freja and stam wore. it's a lot like last fall's taffetta dress that gemma ward wore except it was hot pink and black flower print, and i didn't like that one either. but i adore the heavy looking material he used for the pants and some shirts. most of this fall's pieces reminds me of turn of the century turkish male wear and the bavarians, i believe, that visit hogwarts in the goblet of fire.
