Marc Jacobs Gets Playful With Paisley And Prints

Jun 8, 2011 By Amy

While other fashion brands went formal for their resort collections (see MaxMara and Armani), Marc Jacobs kept it casual for his eponymous line and his more youthful extension Marc by Marc Jacobs.

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.
