Marc by Marc Jacobs Catwalk Fashion Show New York FW2010
The models at Marc Jacobs’ second show were as loosely styled as the ones at his first show this week. The hair and make-up stayed natural and even the clothes looked as if no one bothered to think about it too much.
The Marc by Marc Jacobs collection had a very youthful vibe. The careless models looked somewhat like rebellious teenagers who just came out of school.
The first few girls wore striped dresses, skirts and tops combined with neutral pants and jackets. The boys wore wide pants with shirts, cardigans and winter coats with fur collars. All coats and jackets had some military influences, which we’ve seen in many fw2010 fashion shows already.
The first half of the show we saw hues of red, olive, khaki and beige, which looked perfect for fall. Then during the second half of the show, after a few tartan designs, the clothes mostly turned black. The models, who wore dark shades, looking as if they were going to a funeral.
Overall the collection was very tame and serious. With most skirts and dresses at knee-length all looks seemed appropriate for wearing to a family dinner.
Marc Jacobs clearly wasn’t in the mood to scream and shout, but hopefully next time he brings back some fun to his fashion.
