Marc Jacobs Gets Playful With Paisley And Prints
For the Marc Jacobs collection resort show Jacobs delivered uber-bold prints in green and blue hues which were used for shirts, skirts, and more. The paisely-like prints were pretty overpowering in some of the head-to-toe looks. Typically, I’m a Jacobs fan, but I felt some this collection went overboard with a print that’s not too flattering. The designer did win me over with a white frock that had silver embellishments and a teal asymmetrical tulle dress…I’ll take them both, thank you.
Taking things to a more playful level for Marc by Marc Jacobs, the designer was inspired by the city of Miami and his ideal Marc girl taking a trip to the sunny destination. Polka dots, bright red, and a tropical floral piece all part of his Miami girl aesthetic. For Jacobs’ men’s looks he drew ideas from Jim Jocoy’s punk themed photo book “We’re Desperate” and while I do enjoy his formal looks I’m not a fan of any guy tucking his shirt into his underwear–even if it is designer.
