Watercolor Daydream


Marc Jacobs SS10

Marc Jacobs is tired of seeing young girls wearing black and studs. “It’s not such an individual expression,” he said after his terrific Spring show, the underlying message of which could’ve been, duh, be an individual. “If last season was a trip back in time to the eighties,” he continued, “this was a trip to the theater, the ballet, the opera.” But which shows?

That’s what’s so genius about Jacobs. He can take the most uncool accessory, spin it around, and give it instant fashion cred. Likewise, he can pull references from everywhere and nowhere, and, filtered through his febrile imagination, they have the shock of the new.

[…] In any case, Jacobs might say, it beats another tired lineup of black leather and studs.

Everybody and their mother seems to hate this collection. But for me, I couldn’t agree more with style.com’s review; not to mention Marc Jacobs himself. The black and studs thing was fun and fresh in the beginning; but then it just got tired and worn out. Everybody does it. To the point that it’s almost like the only thing that “looks good” to anybody these days.

This collection is crazy, and girly, and looks like it jumped right out of The Nutcracker in some alternate dimension. I adore it. The creams, pinks, and pastel blues; sheer fabric and ruffles galore. These are a few of my favorite things.
