Marc Jacobs S/S 2012

Posted by kevin | September 16th, 2011

As the last show on NY fashion week calendar, Marc Jacobs was given the arduous task of ending things with a bang. No easy feat, given the jaded editors filling the seats of the Armory, but Jacobs managed to move his audience by showing one of his best collections to date. Staged with theatricality worthy of a Broadway Fosse revival, the collection was a thoughtful melange of influences past, present and future. Everything from cashmere sweatshirts, Stephen Jones crafted lamé du-rags and silicone dresses appeared on Jacobs’ runway. In the hands of a lesser designer these quirky touches might seem haphazard, but Marc managed to create a cohesive look. Somewhere between futuristic flapper and urbane fashionista lies the Jacobs girl: this season there are no literal references, and as such each piece took on a life of its own. Clothing with personality is what Marc Jacobs is all about and spring’s offerings are filled with the charm, grace and wit we’ve come to expect from America’s current fashion king.

    Great show, the end was fab with model statues.

  2. Subnormal Magazine says:

    great photography, and great looking show with amazing clothes and awesome lights and set design..that transluscent ringed dress is amazing…cool to see Sofia Coppola and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth here too..some of the models here however do not look like runway girls at all, and some of the hair and make up does not do justice to the great collection

  3. Rini says:

    It could be the spirit of Cabaret that’s influencing my thoughts, but something about this collection is so very Weimar Berlin to me. 🙂

    No one would wear these looks on the street or to work. Even the individual pieces seem passe and rushed. Marc has too much on his plate.

  7. Suki Menkiss says:

    A lot of pieces looked they were torn out of Prada last three seasons. The color blocking socks over heels, the neon paillette dresses, the checks and dots, etc.

    Probably one of MJ’s least original collection in years.

    Nice pics. May I borrow two of them for my blog(I want to put it in an article whereI comment on the collection.)? I’ll give full credits+include a working link.
    Thank you.
    p.s(e-mail me back?)
