Marc by Marc Jacobs - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2008
The adorably modish looks were more accessible than the designer's signature line but no less appealing. "Puzzles, youth, energy and graphic sort of cartoons. Stuff like that," Jacobs explained of the collection, which touched upon a wide array of references while still managing to feel cohesive. Looks like a red nylon trench with an extra blue flap riffed on the deconstructed theme of the Marc Jacobs collection. Breezy knee-skimming frocks could have come have been lifted straight from the closet of a Braniff air stewardess while tailored cordoroy pantsuits had a retro '70s vibe. Eye-popping prints and a saturated color palette served as unifying elements. Accessories like two-tone patent leather sling backs and kooky Lego belts were the icing on the cake.
