Luxury Week Day 3: Marc Jacobs

By Butterboom Writers  /  August 29, 2008

80’s rebellion and Sonic Youth were on the style agenda.


Day 3 of the Mastercard Luxury Week Hong Kong 2008 has just wrapped, with daytime showings from Paul & Shark and BCBG MAXAZRIA, but the fashionistas and celebutantes of Hong Kong were out in full force for the Marc Jacobs fall collection show last night.

Clearly inspired by the 80’s rebellious punk era with Sonic Youth blasting over the loudspeakers. There were short little dresses in black with dashes of muted colours like yellow, green, pink, red and purple in graphical plaid and cubic cuts worn with a lot of attitude. Everyone was checking out the boots at this show. The black ankle boots with coloured leather trimmings looks like a potential best seller this fall. The Marc Jacobs show featured both Marc by Marc Jacobs, the brand’s younger line and Marc Jacobs. But what was up with the one model with the cloth mask/bag on her head? See what we mean in the photos below.

Marc Jacobs fall collection is the complete contrast of Marc, very minimalistic and rather austere. Jackets and dresses in very pale pastel colours were elongated and everything was purposely oversized outfits and loose.
