Marky Marc

Well I am continuing to delve further through the SS11 shows and next on my Check list is Marc Jacob. I love Marc Jaob, I always think his shows are a must-see whether is his Main line, his diffusion line Marc by Marc Jacob or his work for Louis V.

Marc Jacobs main collection was good but I felt like it wasn't really him. He clearly took influences from the 70s with long flowing dresses, pussy bow blouses and volumious trousers/ playsuits. This was reminiscent of Gucci, 2 seasons ago; I know that fashion moves around in cycles but I really think that this trend has come around again very quickly. I enjoyed the use of his bold colours with deep purple, baby pink, rusty oranges and mustards weaving their way through the range. Also I love the way that MJ has also used one colour for a whole outfit, with perhaps a flash of something else.

I am totally going to be wearing an all in one colour outfit next season. I'm thinking pretty in pink.

Again I don't know why all of the designers have taken to using a shiny man made fabric which looks alot like nylon or viscose. If I had to shell out the big bucks for an outfit from MJ or Prada I don't want the material to look like its from Primark. I think I need to do some digging and find out whats up with that.

My highlights of the collection was the mustard short suit, the pink pantsuit, and the red show stopping dress, because they are contemporary classics, and I strongly believe we should bring back the short suit. Can I rock it, I think i can!!!

My low lights where the dodgy knitwear, Sonia Rykiel can rest assured that MJ won't be taking her crown as the knitwork guru. The breast targets are soo 90s. My other low light was the random disco crazy print used on some garments...WTF???? that's all I'm saying.

Okay, so I am slightly underwhelmed by MJ (and of course there was Prada as well) which has made me think that I need to look outside my little favourite designer bubble. This bubble usually includes Marc Jacob, Miuciana Prada, Karl Lagerfield, PPQ, Ashish and Richard Nicoll. I am not going to write off the latter three yet mind, as I haven't seen their stuff as of this moment. So you can expect my next post to be gushing about Lord Lagerfield.

Anyway I am off to try and find the prefect I have not dressed up for Halloween outfit. Bye for now!!!
