I'll never truly know whether my love for each new season of Marc by Marc is at least in part due to a deep bias. If you've read this blog at all, you should know by now that Marc is my main man. The art he created changed me, and that's a fact. His original eponymous line is legendary, and always will be. However, his diffusion line is what really resonates with me on a more personal, wearable level. The girl I aspire to be always has a little Marc by Marc in her.
One of my favorite aspects of the brand is that no matter what the fabric, cut or design is, it always comes out looking new and sought-after. Nautical stripes are certainly not a new concept, but they were prevalent in this collection and were presented in a way that made me fall in love with them all over again.
Say hello to spring's answer to fall's camel coat rage, and there are no words for the straw cross-body bags with neon detailing. I'm crossing my fingers for a price tag below $300 on the bag.
Floppy, oversized bows at the ankle have been done on a viral level with Pierre Hardy x Gap, but these shoes take that idea to a luxurious level of aesthetic joy.
In the words of Mrs. Zoe, I die for this blood red / orange color. I wish I could tell from the pictures what fabric the dress and shirt are made out of. The high-waisted shorts remind me of a pair of navy Marc by Marc shorts I have, so needless to say I covet these as well.
More great bags, a fresh collarless military jacket, and the classiest pair of hot pants I've ever seen.
Another season, another job well done. I salute you, Mr. Jacobs.
