Marc Jacobs: Youth Revolt
This resort collection could not be any more different than what designer Marc Jacobs showed us for fall a couple months back. In his latest 2012 collection, like many other designers, takes us to a sun filled destination where we can just be ourselves. This might be because of the cold winter we experienced and we are now ready to enjoy the sun. The clothes were very organic but at the same time very youthful with easy flowing silhouettes, jeweled crop tops, daisy patters and bright tulle. The girls were primarily in flats which were ballerina inspired or decorated by large crystals. The use of the metallic fabric did bring something different to the collection, giving it a sense of chic that his loyal customers will be eager to get their hands on.
Last night the designer received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) for his work in fashion not only with his namesake brand but also at Louis Vuitton. Overall the collection was fun, easy flowing something we have been missing from Jacobs but I’m more excited to see what he will show for spring in the next coming months.
