Marc Jacobs really did bring something fresh during the recent New York fashion week. Rather than just taking some cue from so-and-so era, he actually tried to do something out of the box by playing with various fabric and texture. There were lots and lots of polka dots, latex button-down shirts, lace, 'rubber to look like sequins' dresses, cashmere taut chin straps for vinyl berets by Stephen Jones, patent leather and rubberized leather wedge heel snow boots, skirt studded with plastic cabochons, peplum tops, sheath dress. He had said, "I wanted something strict and severe." And with the vision you get his Fall Collection for 2011.
Jacobs has used Polka dots with such generosity and in such variation that you cannot help but agree that dots will rule the coming season. Come fall, people are going to speak in dotted code language and your time to start learning the language starts... right now.
