Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 Collection
Although we don’t have much ripping to do. Why? Style sez:
“As ever at Marc Jacobs, the references and ideas came fast and furious. You could see Old Hollywood in the cropped jackets worn with bathing suit tops and high-waisted satin shorts, a touch of chinoiserie in the silk lamé pajama sets, perhaps a bit of Carmen Miranda in the toucan-print wrap dresses, and even a little of his home away from home, Paris, in the marinière tunic sweaters accented with flowers at the shoulder. The overall effect? Bright, upbeat, and equally suited for island or city.”
It’s just a pretty, modern, chic little collection; all prints and colors and textures, which (to us, anyway) is what a resort collection should be all about. Even better, it doesn’t lapse into the “tropical print caftan” trap that designers often get into when dreaming up resortwear.
