Yes, he’s done it again. Keeping it fairly simple yet a casual elegance, Marc Jacobs presents a rather silky, shiny and sparkly collection for Spring Summer 2014. Admittedly, some of his designs that feature excessive amounts of satin and silk do resemble pyjama bottoms; nevertheless It works and I like it.
Along with the silky trouser suit, Jacobs goes for the 118 look with a red and white sporty shorts and jacket ensemble. Continuing the all-in-one trend, Marc Jacobs also has a few jump suits in his SS14 collection; some that follow his silk/satin theme and others that lead with sparkle, glitz and glam. Of course the fabulous collection was not complete without a classy knee-length long-sleeve dress; bringing a touch of mono chrome to the catwalk.
Although it is not usually my cup of tea, partly due to the pyjama “look” but also for the simple fact that I can not sit in silk; without either naturally sliding about the place or at least having the urge to; it is growing on me. Its interesting and I’m intrigued to see it worn off of the runway and more to the point it is MARC JACOBS!!!
More often than not, fashion enables us to read people; often like a book, sometimes like Vogue but most of the time like a free newspaper.
I know they say you must not "judge a book by its cover" , but When it comes to fashion, its too easy to make assumptions and pass judgement. Whether you're eyeing up some one's bag, shoes, entire outfit or just their general sense of style; there is always a question, remark, comment or compliment in mind.
I am definitely guilty of this. Guilty of starring at someone's bag; either trying to figure out who designed it, how much it cost and why they have it instead of me. Guilty of seeking out the perfect Chanel bag; hanging on the arms of strangers. Guilty of looking at people from head-to-toe when I think an outfit is either hideous or fabulous. As much as we shouldn't judge people and as wrong as it is; its something we are all guilty of. Lets face it, when it comes to fashion, it just can't be helped.
Check out these kool homemade clutch bags, that look like books. As cute, quirky and unique as these clutches are, they also come with a unique and not so cute price tag. But hey, if you got it, flaunt it. I know I'd rather have a book for a bag, rather than a book in my bag. Looks over books eh?!
