M.I.S.S. NYFW: Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2010

When I graduated college, I got what I still consider to be the best present I’ve ever received in my life (other than the Hannukah gift when I was 7) from a random rich uncle. A black leather Marc Jacobs bag. Oh, what a beauty to behold! I think I slept with the bag cuddled up next to me for the first week I had it, proud to be the owner of something so exquisite. Ah, memories!

That said, it’s obvious that I have a soft spot in my heart for Marc Jacobs. His namesake collection–and the Lady Gaga afterparty–proved that recession or not, Marc still reigned supreme! And his fashion-lite Marc by Marc Jacobs runway show only made him a bona fide Fashion Week superstar!

Colors were electic and prints were bold, namely tribal. Paired with more 40s-influenced items, such as silky polka dot blouses, high waisted shorts, and the most adorable A-line dresses. Although the models, styled with ankle-strap platforms and collossal bow headbands, were rocking a variety of shapes, the constant theme of the night seemed to be the cinched waist. From a flannel skirt to a mini sheath-esque dress and a detailed trench, everything was belted and nipped in. The celebrity designer, who’s been quoted in more Jigga jams than I care to count, also sent a plethora of jumpsuits down the runway– my favorites were satiny early-80s full length one and a sweatsuit type-number. Suited combos also dominated, an assortment of mix-and-match cropped trouser-and-jacket looks and skirted polka dot numbers.

It wasn’t all bold and the beautiful, however. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2010 collection also brought back a strong undercurrent of the 90s, which is a huge trend this fall already. Flannel skirts and button downs discreetly popped up, although they were mostly paired with elegant pieces such as slim-cut high waisted pants. One can only wonder if Marc, famous for being the first to bring grunge to the runway, is making a return to his wild-boy designing days of the past. Personally, I would NOT be hatin’ if some models came stomping down the runway in docs, ripped tights, and a good flannel.

All in all, Marc proved he’s still got it, still the big man on campus, and all-too deserving of all the hip-hop name drops!
