Marc Jacobs Spring 2012

I was very excited to attend my first Marc Jacobs show which closed New York Fashion Week.

The Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 show started (on-time) with curtains drawing back to reveal models lounging on chairs Fosse-style before taking the runway one by one which was timed to perfection.

Marc Jacobs presented an interesting mash up of 20s and 60s style pairing 20s flapper dresses with plastic cowboy boots and cellophane coats.

We also saw futuristic materials with interesting cuts, bold shapes and experimental textures.

The colour palette was just as varied with pretty pink, mint and lemon pastels, mixed with jewel tone and metallic hues.

I can’t wait to see who will be the first to wear this sporty, youthful, fun collection.

I loved the cellophane skirts and dresses as they are so daring and unexpected. We often say that certain stars would look great in a trash bag, now let’s see that rings true on the red carpet.

Key accessories included turbans, cowboy boots, fringed lady-like totes and clutches, plus bi-colour bowling bags and Mary Jane heels.

    “I can’t wait to see who will be the first to wear this sporty, youthful, fun collection.” – My bet is Leighton Meester.
