Autumn-Winter 2012/13 – It was fun, fanatical and fantastic; things we love about Marc Jacobs. His Disney-fied edits of the fables of the Brothers Grimm allowed for heavy, over-the-top styling. A conglomeration of fabrics and layers made for the perfect autumn-winter clothing: combining practicality (layering) with fashionability. Set in an icy warped village, the models were weighed down with oversized fur hats in a compilation of colours. It was a dotty collection in its more-is-more approach. Contrasting fabrics, skirts worn over cropped trousers and puss-in-boot shoes. A juxtapose of shimmering skirts, fuzzy fur shrugs and wooly knit wraps went alongside appliqué and embellishment strewn onto everything. The collection evoked poetry, beauty and ugliness; a conglomeration of textures, ideas and styles had been throw into the pot, given a good stir and poured out onto the catwalk, but, in all, it was fantastic.
