(NEW YORK) If Marc Jacobs' signature collection paid an homage to golden age of 80's subculture, Marc by Marc Jacobs felt like a confusing artifact found in a thrift store thirty years later. Sixty looks were on display, just like during the main show, but the clothes looked unfocused and less edgy. With the exception of satisfying women's bags, wholesomely tailored men's suits, and a few attractive party dresses, the effort was oversized and piled-on. At least there were few appealing separates and ski boots to keep young Marc faithfuls crawling back.
