s/s 2008 nyc: marc by marc jacobs.

collections Uncategorized

welcome aboard marc jacobs airlines! at least that’s what i was thinking in viewing the marc by marc collection. it reminded me of flight attendant uniforms from pan am and others back in the 70s. the colors had a definite shag carpeting look to them (mustard, dark teal, olive, brown, navy, cream), and the shapes focuses on the waist.

the looks included collared popover tops, high waist sailor pants, checked and belted shirtdresses, slick raincoats, knit rompers with matching cardigans, geometric print skirts in silk and box pleated gabardine, cropped jacket pantsuits, and slim ribbed sweaters. polkadot dresses came in silk and in a cotton with metallic thread. the button up “stewardess” dresses and pantsuits had just the right amount of retro styling to not look too done.

the accessories also had cool pops of color. there were chain link flats, foldover purses, grandmother pocketbooks, rolling travel cases, and raffia and leather flight bags.
