“I like romantic allusions to the past: what the babysitter wore, what the art teacher wore, what I wore during my experimental days in fashion when I was going to the Mudd Club and wanted to be a New Wave kid or a punk kid but was really a poseur. It’s the awkwardness of posing and feeling like I was in, but I never was in. Awkwardness gives me great comfort”- Marc Jacobs. With that awkwardness in mind Marc went on to design this year´s resort wear, and it is one of my favorites to date.
Marc by Marc Jacobs was launched in 2001 and is a mainstay in chic, young closets from New York to Tokyo, it hardly seems fair to call Marc by Marc a diffusion line. More than just a priced-down, mass version of the primary collection, Marc by Marc has its own sensibility. Whether it’s slouchy layers or retro prim, the look translates well for everyday, street, cocktails, and a stylish workplace. The silhouette is always key and ever-changing, and the brand boasts mix-and-match cheek that in less experienced hands might not look as serious.
