Calvin Klein Collection
click on for MARC JACOBS RESORT 2012!
a complete 180 from his severe, s&m-esque fall 2011 collection, Marc Jacobs' resort looks are light, playful, floral, and even metallic at times! the whip straight, calf length polka dot skirts and dresses are replaced with micro mini shorts in muted beiges and blues and tank dresses littered with metallic flower appliqués. the sweet, girlish oxfords and flat sandals give the collection even more youth, and sweetheart neckline frocks, nipped at the waist with white belts, add sophistication but still give the air of a gal on vacation. the matchy-matchy baroque and flower tops/bottoms were a bit much at times, but all was forgiven at the sight of the last two looks - a frothy pink tulle skirt with neon pink flowers (paired brilliantly with a slate striped short sleeve sweatshirt) and an equally ethereal seafoam green tulle dress...both paired with matching tinted PVC heels. Jacobs continues to redefine himself, keeping us all eternally guessing (and interested!).
