Summary: Yes, Marc Jacobs began his show on time, isn’t that what you really wanted to know? The designer could literally send a paper bag down the runway and everyone would still think it’s the best look of the season. Again, Marc Jacobs proved victorious to a star studded audience last night. Jacob’s show was pure Americana through the decades…a mish-mash so to speak yet somehow he pulled it off. I would never have thought of metallic gingham, yet it looked femininely chic and eclectic. That is the beauty of Jacobs. He pushes the envelope in surprising ways and everyone loves a risk taker. Does it all work? Hell no. But, rest-assured, by the time the collection hits the stores it will be sellable. It always is.
