i slithered my into one of the skirts from Marc Jacobs' Fall/Winter 2010 collection recently...so i thought i'd share.
here it is on the runway...
in all truthfulness, i took the picture while wearing another Marc Jacobs top, but i also paired it with a black modal cotton tshirt, knotted up at my ribs, and it was even more chic. the skirt is a very sophisticated cut, but it's actually more stunning when paired with a very casual top. in real life, on the streets, i will pair this skirt with a charcoal grey crew-neck tshirt, knotted at my ribs, a chunky black boot or wedge, and a black, oversized chunky knit sweater. i think it's more modern to pair something so tailored with such an 'uptown' shape with other pieces that are more relaxed, more 'downtown.'
all in all, the verdict? it's an amazing piece, no doubt. it's very form fitting and it makes a statement. not for the faint of fashion heart, for sure. but if you have the heart - this skirt would delight Bill Cunningham as you ran across 5th Avenue!
