Marc Jacobs Fall 2010 Collection: A Masterful Tour de Force

I can hardly find the words to describe the brilliance of Marc Jacobs' fall 2010 collection. I suppose I could open up a thesaurus and type every word that means the same as amazing and perfect, but that would bore you all to tears. Instead, I'll let these pictures from Jacobs' runway show do the talking.

This collection is Jacobs' tour de force as far as I'm concerned. Conservative silhouettes and a muted color palette are a sound choice in today's economic environment, but there is nothing boring or predictable about this collection. In fact, the entire tone of the collection goes against what we've seen from Jacobs for the past couple of years. When we compare it to season's past, it becomes clear that Jacobs has finally "grown up" as a designer. We all know he's extremely talented, but that talent was wasted on a slew of throw-away designs. There isn't a "throw-away" piece in this entire presentation. If you're as impressed as I am with Marc's RTW, then you'll be positively giddy when you see what Jacobs has done with his handbag line.

Marc has given his loyal clientele much to be thankful for this fall when it comes to handbags. From lady-like handbags to everyday (but not ordinary) hand-held totes to sleek, modern clutches, Jacobs has covered all his bases. He focused mostly on using grey in several different textures and finishes with resounding success. Embellishments in the form of attached padlocks and classic push-lock closures were everywhere. I actually love the use of the padlock in this collection because it looks functional even if it isn't. Even fur-trimmed bags, which could have been absolute disasters, were well-executed and quite appealing.

Final Analysis: Marc Jacobs hits a peak in his prolific career with this masterful lesson in classic ready to wear.

Handbag Pick: Grey, textured leather flap bag with dangling padlock detailing.

    WOW! This is the best handbag lineup of all the Fall 2010 collections! Every piece is wearable, original and timeless. I can't believe the new design even got YOU to support the padlock detail. The fur bags scare me, but I'll just pretend like I never saw them, because the rest of the collection is AMAZING! I think he might even snatch up some die hard Hermes fanatics.

    "I'll just pretend like I never saw them".

    Ha, ha, ha...

    I'm not a fan of fur on bags, but at least Jacobs was kind enough to keep his fur looking nice. Some other designers use fur that makes Britney's hair extentions appealing by comparison.

    Designer handbags are the handbags which are manufactured by us keeping in mind the best designs of the well known brands but the raw material and designers employed are our own. Hence, these are available at reasonable prices. The quality of these Designer handbags is also competitive in the market.
