Full Frontal Fashion

img_5418as.jpgHey – I went to the Marc Jacobs show last night. He started on time again – or nearly so – for the second season in a row. I actually miss the days when he used to make people wait for an hour or so. The bleacher seating at the Armory already makes it feel like a gym – the waiting around and running into old friends made it feel like some sort of crazy high-school reunion. This season was one of my favorite MJ collections ever – I absolutely loved it. I loved the little straw boater hats, the plaid shirts that were shot through with metallic thread, the massive espadrille-meets-stiletto hybrid shoes that most of the models were wearing. I really loved the way that the stylist had piled everything on top of the other – brilliant styling. I’m calling it “Southern Depression-era picnic girl gets kidnapped by a gang of gypsies”. Stefan Beckman’s “Hall of Mirrors” runway/set design and Frederic Sanchez’s choice of an all-instrumental Gershwin soundtrack contributed greatly to the dreamy, cinematic, late 20’s/early 30’s-era feeling. If this sort of masterful collection was somehow inspired by our own current economic downturn then I’m hoping recovery is a long time coming. – xo eddie

    I loved it too! To me, it was “Southern-Depression era picnic girl gets kidnapped by a band of gypsies — and straightened up by Mary Poppins.”

  • That’s Perry Farrell the former lead singer of Jane’s Addiction and his plastic Barbie. Not that into the new Posh haircut…short-n-sleek can look great but her new hair is short with chunkiness. There was totally some Mary Poppins in that Marc show – you are so right!

    eddie! where is that fab dress kelly osbourne is wearing from? i want it! she looks so good!

  • You would think Kelly would be wearing Marc since she was at his show – I don’t think that’s a Marc dress though. I will likely see her this week – I’ll ask her.
