Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2009 Collection

The Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2009 Collection takes a more sophisticated viewpoint on late 1970’s and 80’s street style. Timely updates to classic vintage influences lead to more grown-up sensibilities as our hip Marc by Marc girls get ready for the Fall season.

Divorced from the coquettish main line, the collection proposes a light ocher and brown palette with an accent of jewel tones of purple, red, green and teal which are highlighted with gold details, Marc adopts a clean approach to this season’s pattern design that fits well into the retro preppy style. Plaid of various sizes hit the centre stage, among them the intellectual Argle, simple and straight forward “Multi Abbey Plaid” and “Molten Lava Sketched Plaid”.

Stripe is another motif. Rainbow stripes appear on sweaters, dresses, scarves and tights. For the brand’s most famous printed tee, look for “Forest Friend Tee”, “Patchwork Cat Tee”, “Cloud Nine Tee” and “Houndstooth Miss Marc Tee” in this season.

Loose fit and the brand’s signature mix & match style are keys to this collection. Scarf, leg warmer, tights and hiking sneakers are ingeniously used to dress the carefree student in you. Pointy shoulder is another highlight of the collection. By blending 80s quintessential structured shoulder and feminine puffy sleeves, the designer proposes an exquisite twist to the highly wearable dresses. Colored leggings are also must-have of the season. Wear with clean-cut one-piece or playful A-line skirt to give femininity a vivacious and girlish interpretation.

Creative juice flows sumptuously at Marc Jacobs. Each season, the brand proposes an array of ingenious designs. In the season’s men’s collection, retro preppy reigns.

Effortless, clean pieces dominate the collection. Blazers and trousers are matched with printed shirts and striped muffles, proposing an exquisite, women-envied aesthetic. Wear with the popular “Factory Tee”, “Boy Tee”, “Mr. Marc Tee” and “Fireworks Tee” to bring out the little boy in you.
