My relationship with Mr Jacobs has been an emotional one of ups and downs. Of course, the Marc line has remained a loyal friend, but the main line has increasingly left me amazed and enamored then confused and downright hurt all at once.
Fall 06 was the breaking point, not only was everything so layered and frumpy but the fashion world LOVED it, leaving me feeling less than hip (horror of horrors).
But even so, I have to admit, Marc Jacobs is significant in the world of fashion, even if I don't love it. But this spring – I did love it. Well not the crazy pleated pants, but the rest was as pleasing as the peaceful green and gray runway. And the Marc line's patched dress was about the greatest thing of NY fashion week.
