Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2010 RTW

Leave it up to Marc Jacobs to change the tone and mood of New York Fashion Week; while everyone was busy sending out flirty cock-tail dresses filled with embellishments, Jacobs decided to send lovely ladies down the catwalk in tweed, suede or boucle coats.

His models looking like women from the late 50's looked like they were either going to work, or out on a date. For day, there were several suits, including a three-piece menswear plaid one and a gray-flannel culotte version- yes, culottes.

While for evening, it was all about lush and opulent furs. Heck, even Jacobs himself got all dressed up for the occasion- he came out in a sharp gray suit and tie (word is it was Bottega Veneta), a departure from the kilt he had become so fond of. The designer, who called the celebrity culture 'boring', opened the show in spectacular style, tearing down a brown paper curtain to reveal his 56 models on a stage behind.

Like the true fashion savant and pop chameleon he is, he's turned a new leaf from his more recent party-girl '80s-influenced collections evidenced by Madonna's and Lady GaGa's front-row or backstage absence.
