Marc Jacobs Resort 2011: 1960's St. Tropez

 Marc Jacobs says he is sick of seeing women wearing black and studs, and so he has created the perfect solution with his resort 2011 mainline collection. Inspired by the glamorous looks of the 1960’s, most likely taken from somewhere like St Tropez, a place renowned  for it’s link to French fashion and luxury. Marc created polished, classic looks, given a slight update.

Double-breasted jackets with large, rounded lapels accompanied tailored shorts and colourful, face-covering straw hats. Other looks included girlish, printed dresses - one shirt dress looked particularly 60’s, while other dresses were teamed with embellished tweet coats, or were covered in fluffy, floaty tulle.
Polka dot was one prominent pattern, featuring on one stand-out, below the knee dress, with a large A-line skirt, quite “1960’s mother around the house”, but more dramatic.

Overall, the collection was typical of Marc’s assertive design skills, and the result was an ageless collection, with mass appeal, and sophistication. The complete opposite of those studded black pieces he hates so much.
