Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2011

In the fashion circle, it's always been said that Marc Jacobs is one of the very most important designers from New York, or anywhere for that matter. And having witnessed his new collection last night during New York fashion week via livestream, I was reminded why. 
After channeling YSL for his last collection, Jacobs decided to keep things closer to home- “I thought about all the things I’ve done in the past, and perennially loved,” he said in a backstage interview with Women's Wear Daily. "That’s my description of classic- from the trompe l'oeil to the polka dots to the glam collection that had the rubber, and the sweats that we’ve done, all those crazy American classics.” And "classic" is definitely one word that can be used to describe this collection. With couture-like precision, his usual over-abundance of tongue-in-cheek kitsch and a demure girly-ness, Jacobs fused fur (fake and real), fabrics, embroideries and prints into one audacious collection with one overarching theme- more is more.
Marc Jacobs is a showman, and this was a collection that only asserted that; one ridiculously OTT, hyper-modern and altogether chic, riffing on everything from sex shops to equestrianism to Cruella de Vil.
