Resort! Resort! Resort!: Marc Jacobs
In Jacobs' extensive Resort 2009 collection, we saw a bevy of experiments in shape color and proportion. The collection started with an incredibly strong coat with a large bow in black along the neck. It was all about the love. Mr. Jacobs used a heart motif in many of the 38 looks. Victoria Beckham even wore one of the heart dresses at the CFDA Award Monday night. Jacobs worked immensely on this pant that created a feminine yet strong and tough look. It was reminded me of the Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2008 collection, and yet I saw a lot of the Spring 2007 collection by Jacobs. I saw Arabian Nights meets Studio 54. His use of colors like eggplant and gold, as well as an amazing trouser made his collections THE collection to look for in stores. I'm excited to see how the man you brought us such a calm tranquil, modern collection for fall, will grow on this idea for Spring in September.
