OMFG, Let’s Talk Marc Jacobs

Leandra Medine | February 16, 2011

There were aliens on the runway! Aliens, I tell ya. Aliens!

In the most highly anticipated show of New York Fashion Week, Marc Jacobs proved the ever-famous “men are from Mars, women are from Venus” theory incorrect. Reversed, even.

With the first look — metallic trouser pants, a white turtleneck sweater, and what looks like a plastic beret at the tip of the model’s head — the collection promised that we women are likely the breed from Mars and not the other way around. To take it a step further, the intergalactic runway just added one more element of certainty to the hypothesis. Lucky us, it’s one hell of a stylish planet.

We worship Sir Jacobs and quickly devise plans to get the look and accept with glee the truth that date night is but galaxies away. A man will be distracted by the neck-covering top and the metallic pants and question the motivation behind wearing a peewee-size beret off the tip of your head. “It won’t keep you warm,” he may say. Never mind that. He’ll never get it. You shouldn’t care. Let’s work on investing time in someone who understands the art of a plastic beret.

Are you familiar with the polka-dance?

…How about now?
There are alien-inspired polka-dancing fish too, how nifty.

Clicky, clicky. Ready, ready more on The Cut HERE.  
And may Marc’s force be with you.

    Hip hip hooray for the cookie monster coat! as soon as the first images of this show popped up on the interwebs I was drooling on my keyboard, and strangely craving cookies. Does anyone know what platform the Marc Jacobs rocket launches from? I'm so there.

  • Monica

    Mad respect for Marc Jacobs but almost all designers just get a little out there sometimes… I guess if you are afraid to push the boundaries styles never change…
    BUT I'm so glad your blog exists because SOMEONE needed to point out the occasional ridiculousness of the fashion industry and you do it in such a clever, well-worded way.

    Thank you.

    PS: ever looked at Catalog Living( (it's the best interior design catalog basher out there right now)
