Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 RTW

For the Fall 2010 RTW collection Marc Jacobs suffused the line with elements correlating to his almost twenty year history. The show was not revolutionary; he didn't try to reinvent the fashion code, or look into the future with a 3-D swarovski encrusted telescope; no, he kept it sweet, structured and, more importantly in my opinion, wearable.

Simple grays and pastels dominated the look, with the occasional 3 piece suit, knit dress, sequined sweater, luscious shearling collars, trenchcoat and sheer lingerie inspired pieces. Accessoried consisted of kitten heeled crocodile pumps and sparkly socks, with the occasional clutch and evening gloves adorning the arms of the models.

Personally, I am in love with his latest collection. Yes, it's not daring or "out there", but to me it has a timeless elegance and class which will never go out of style. Let me hear your thoughts, good or bad.
