Time to talk about fashion week. The shows, not the street style, although over the next week I may continue adding in some of my favorite shots from Tommy Ton, Mr. Newton, Style Tao and the like. Because, you see, it’s almost as fun watching what’s going on outside the tents as is in them. But not today. Today we begin talking about the shows. As I looked over each Fall/ Winter collection as they were, and continue to be, released this fashion week, I began wondering how I would share them all with you. These shows publicize the best that fashion has to offer this coming fall, and I want to do it right. And so, I have decided upon a method that will highlight both my favorite collections and the trends that they are leading us to, and will group the designers' collections as so. So brace yourselves, because that crazy fun-ness will start tomorrow. But today, I’ve decided to talk with you all about one low- key collection in particular.
… If you can consider this low-key. Because I can’t. And the reason I’m showing you this here Marc Jacobs F/W collection alone and without a specific trend or genre that I think it’s hinting to is because, well, I simply have no clue what category to put it under. This group of clothing is wild, and crazy, and cannot, under any circumstances, be compared to anything else I’ve seen come down the runways thus far. Consisting of shoes reminiscent of olden Irish days coupled with calf-length socks, fuzzy hats, skirts and tops that look as if they were created by fabrics pulled out of a fourth grader’s arts and crafts box, and so, so many colors leave me wondering where to go from here. I guess it’s also just as important to take a nice hard look at the many examples of simple black pants under these wild and amazing outfits. Perhaps they’re the perfect pieces necessary to tone down the rest of the clothing, give the looks some semblance of realty. Anyway, I’m not sure what I think about this Marc Jacobs collection. The whole thing seems like street style went and took a stroll into a costume shop, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I think I love it, but could very well hate it. So weigh in. I want to hear what you think.
