Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2014
Has Marc lost his design mojo!? I am a MJ fan for life! Love him! However, this collection is NOT one of my favorites. In fact, its probably one of my least favorite collections to date. This collection is team too much. There are so many different statements weaving through this collection, I can’t differentiate the inspiration….it looks like a mash-up of grunge, 70’s, space age, sports-inspiration…it’s just too all over the map for me. There’s no cohesion, which might be intentional. I can’t even deal with the white moon-inspired sneakers. In true Marc from he didn’t disappoint in the handbag area….love the black and red stripe bowling bag.
Jacobs is true visionary, he was the brain-child behind Louis Vuitton ready-to-wear collection. He’s no longer the creative director for Louis Vuitton, which means he’ll have some spare time to dedicate to his own collections. I sure hope so anyway. I would hate to see Marc lose his design mojo….he’s brilliant in my book.
