Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2012
Translucent metallic fabrics, beehives with headscarves. 1920's Chicago style dresses, statement bags with pearly embellishment and calf length sheer socks. Neon and pastels surface in clashing forms. It's Gossip Girl meets sports luxe meets Broadway theatre - an orchestra of influences. Provocative, funky and classy combine. I'm not a fan of the pointy- toed footwear though. One model resembled a muted disco ball with eighties styling. The coats are all very Audrey Hepburn, in a modern context.
The opening and conclusion of the Marc Jacobs S/S 12 Catwalk show reiterate the idea of broadway, specifically the musical Chicago.
Overall, the sneakers were my most coveted item
