Marc reintroduces whimsy and wonder to winter dressing.
If we were to base it on his past collections, Marc Jacobs has never been one to pay attention to the trying times of the economy. Now, more than ever, we see glimpses of his escapist nature in his latest Resort collection, as he seems to want to fly away to the world of fairytales and gamely takes us along.
Everything in the collection bears a nod to a happy ending, from the light and jewel tones of salmon, cobalt blue, gold, green and the occasional maroon, to the ruffles which are exhuberant in almost every piece from your basic shrunken cardigan to pinstriped slacks and voluminous dresses. The ‘Brave Soldier’ and ‘Prince Charming’ personas could be seen in the military-inspired jackets and, if you were somehow doubting this world of fantasy up until now, the models’ clown-like maquillage was more than enough to give us a clue.
While this collection may not appeal to everybody, Marc knows it will be a sure hit to those most like him – child-like at heart and willing to believe that anything is possible.
