|Mod Squad Finale @ Marc Jacobs Spring 2013|
Just when you thought Marc gonna do things, he blown you away with something more unique and unexpected. The last two season-Spring and Fall 2012-he went glamour and uber sexy, but this time he keep it simple yet show you FASHION.
The influence of 60's is really strong-"twiggy-esque" hair for the model, and the mod style. Jacobs was arrowing back to the Factory, the icy pinnacle of New York cool where Edie reigned as the archetypal It girl, and the monochrome, amphetamine-sharp brilliance of the designer's vision cut a precise swathe through all the uncertain murk that swirls around pop culture right now.
The collection consists of T-shirt, coat, slip, skirt, suit, bra, etc., etc., etc. No embellishment needed. Jacobs distilled a radical moment of transition in style, between the suited young ladies of the early sixties and the free spirits of the later part of the decade, passing from preppy-proper to pilled-out style icon in her patent leather and leopard spots, petaled hems and smudgy mascara-ed eyes. And stripes. So many stripes, parallel lines, black and white and sequined, like Lou Reed lyrics coming to life.
