Being stranded on the west coast (well not really) I watched the online live show of the Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 runway show. From an online perspective it was really rather quite impressive versus previous years or other shows I’ve seen online, probably due to the fact that the angle of the camera and the full screen version was used to it’s fullest potential. I really got a sense of the magic, a mystical forest presenting his fall collection in an almost fairy tale of sorts. Think Oliver Twist meets Victoriana. A jewel palette prevailed with brocades, faux fur, tinsel tweeds and embellished big-buckle shoes. The hats took the show over the top in a good way that Marc is known for. A fairy tale runway show from a fairy tale perspective. Click here to watch the show (now previously recorded) and here’s a link to a little clip of Marc Jacobs thanking the production team the eve of the show. Update: The collection is now online for reserve, so I’ve added a little slideshow of some of my favourites below.
