Now we have to go ‘Haute Couture’ upon visiting fashion week. And my choice designer for that category is Marc Jacobs with his fall 2009 collection. To the large assembly of freezing paparazzi outside the Lexington Armory, the Marc Jacobs show kicked off with a portrayal of sculptured designs. And of course a lot of fashion composition and flare. But what are we seeing here? Fun 80′s fashion being revived? With a touch of color desperation? But wait a minute. Those colors do fair well, and bravo Marc for going all the way. I am enjoying the combinations of crushed purples, mixed with greens. Or those very bold gold and yellow numbers. But hey it works, especially for dressing the ‘young’ elite of Hollywood. This collection is bright and electric. And really what more do we expect from Marc? Then these over the top and daring designs. He really has never played it safe. But with such international recognition in the fashion world, we just could not over look this playful jester’s world.
