.. ~ ..This collection was a look back at Marc personally and professionally over his entire career. The clothes, however, did not come down the runway in a 'greatest hits' parade. The show began as a spotlight showed both Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy tearing construction paper off of a wooden 'cage', revealing Marc's lineup of smart girls. An instrumental version of 'Somewhere over the Rainbow' began to play as Marc's first girl made her way down the runway in a simple pale blue sweater and skirt, socks tucked into her heeled slingbacks. The show progressed from simple looks, reminiscing the nineties, to full on coats of fur over light tulle skirts. A finale of satin and velvet embroidered gowns kept the fashion world at a hush of beauty as they caught the hit of nostalgic serenity slowly fading through Marc's Fall 2010 collection. The show seemed, as always, a personal inflection of Marc Jacobs right now, and what he's feeling. Longing for home in the Marc Jacobs archives, perhaps? Who knows, but through Marc's designs, It slowly became clear why the industry has survived this economic downfall. Not because of our further progressing technology, but because of the pure emotional love we grow to have with fashion.
