NYFW: Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2011

If, like me, you’ve always wanted to be magically transported back in time to 1940’s Paris, than the Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2011 offering is sure to be as close as one can get to doing just that. One of the highlights of NYFW, Jacobs ensured another show-stopper with his usual blend of vintage fits  while also appeasing our appetite for something fresh, with a somewhat futuristic bite.

With quirky polka-dot motifs splashed on two-piece suits, Parisian slanted berets and lady-like 40’s style silhouettes, Jacobs swept us up in a whirlwind of glamour and seduction with a sprinkling of historical references which emanated from the puffed-up sleeves, form-fitting knee-length shirts and sophisticated jacquard jackets, all inspired by 1940's fits. 

It was another classic Marc Jacobs moment - as each design flickered past, his vision was immediate, possessing you in a vise-like grip of awe. Without putting his designs on a pedestal, it is his work that gives us as women something to aspire to be - to be a Marc Jacobs woman is to embody elegance, to enchant, to be glamorous, dazzling and most importantly, powerful.
