The Marc by Marc Jacobs spirit for SS11 was frivolous, fabulous and free-spirited! Bottom line: girls just want to have fun. Jacobs delivered a pitch-perfect collection of day dresses, separates and outerwear for easy everyday wear. Like his mainline collection, Jacobs sent long, lithe Seventies silhouettes in bold, sun-drenched colour down the catwalk.
It all began with a gorgeous multi-hued stripe silk tank dress paired with casual sneaker wedges. But while the Marc Jacobs collection was disco-decadent and like something straight out of Studio 54, for Marc by Marc he opted for a sportier, casual and contemporary aesthetic.
There were over 60 looks on the catwalk, including a number of jumpsuits, cute bonnet-style hats, loose-fitting cotton-twill cape-like dresses and jackets, and youthful high-waisted mini-skirts and sweater ensembles. All in all, without a shred of doubt, our old friend the ‘stripe’ stole the show in striking, bright summer colours!
