MARC by Marc Jacobs Fall 2008 Collection: MJ Loves The 80s


As I browsed through the mostly ho-hum creations featured up until now during New York Fashion Week, I was literally blasted out of my chair by the chic, youthful and retro-fabulous fashions from MARC by Marc Jacobs' Fall 2008 collection. A mixture of neon colors and strong silhouettes are a throw-back to the awesome 80s.Not to worry, ladies, there is nothing "cheesy" about these looks. Even if you have bad memories of lime green sweatshirts and black tube skirts lingering in the back of your mind, Marc Jacobs' reinterpretation of the once trendy fad will certainly erase them. The lengths and silhouettes will mostly appeal to younger women, but we can all appreciate the vision and spot-on execution which brought this collection to life.

As if the fashions weren't enough to get me out of my NYFW funk, Jacobs' continues to delight MARC lovers with practical handbags that are short on excess and long on style. Revel in the complimentary neon colors, chic blacks, functional totes and feminine clutches displayed on the runway, and say a little prayer in the hopes that his signature collection will be as bold and inspired as its' younger counterpart was.

    The Gucci Bamboo bag is my favorite handbag line in the world. It beat any other handbag line from any other designers. All the colors featured on the vernis alma make them look simply amazing. As louis vuitton speedy bag think so highly of the aaa designer handbags , there is no surprise that I will also think highly of Gucci Icon Heritage Top Handle Bag. The louis vuitton neverfull mm belong to Gucci 2010 S/S handbags collection. I often feel astonished of the pricy tag of some designer handbags, but in front of this one, I have no doubt because I think it deserves the large sum of money.
