Punk Rock Meets Glamour at Marc Jacobs Spring 16′ RTW

Marc Jacobs is a legend.

End of post.

Kidding, of course. Not about him being a legend. About this being the end of the post. I could honestly go on and on, discussing the icon that is Marc Jacobs. But I’ll keep this post sweet and straight to the point. During the unveiling of the designer’s Spring 2106 Ready-To-Wear collection, the designer introduced some extremely interesting concepts.

Sparkly and patriotic would be my overall description of the collection. But dig a bit deeper, and one will find there’s much more. The collection combined Jacob’s quirky aesthetic, sticking with a color palate reminiscent of the American flag. Red, white, and blue dominated the runway, as models waltzed down the catwalk wearing pieces inspired by punk rock and old Hollywood glamour.

Prints were plaid, texture was glittery, and there was even the occasional, embellished letterman jacket thrown in. Odd combination, no? But sprinkle it with a bit of the ole’ Jacobs artistic talent, and somehow it all works.

I am a journalistic enthusiast, born and bred in Washington, D.C. When I'm not busy meticulously constructing posts, I can be found burying my head in an epic novel, cooking a delicious mess in the kitchen, scouring local thrift stores, and spending way too much time binging on Netflix (Arrested Development anyone?). I cannot live without a good playlist (Billy Holiday is preferred), working wifi (sometimes not always working), and Dunkin Donuts coffee (caramel swirl is my go-to flavor). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to the email below. Happy Reading!
