Runway Reviews: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Sophie Théallet
(NEW YORK) Marc by Marc Jacobs
Marc by Marc Jacobs gave his military-themed collection a thrifty and youthful spin for Fall 2010. Combat khaki twill coats and belted army red jackets were made charming and child-like with mid-calf dress socks, patent leather oxfords, striped nubby knits, and over-the-shoulder bags appropriate for platoons and pep squads alike. If you're looking for something a bit more feminine, hone in on the Bronte lace blouse with high-waisted wool trousers, the balsam gilded numbers, or any of the ultra-girly A-line little black dresses.
Expectations were high for the newest CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner, Sophie Théallet. Major EICs lined the front row as Coco Rocha, Tanya Dziahileva, and their leggy peers glided down the runway wearing slouchy Manolo Blahnik suede boots and one fairytale frock after another. Breezy prairie prints were warmed with easy everyday cardigans and butter-soft belted shearling jackets (it is Fall, after all). Without a doubt, her tour de force consisted of one or two filmy floor-length gowns that gave a respectful nod to the seventies.
