"80's EXPOSTION" over at Marc Jacobs...

"I was thinking about the good old days in New York," he said after the show, "when getting dressed up was such a joy" said Marc Jacobs backstage. Some of my favorite highlights included a little silver-and-black A-line shifts; party dresses in metallic leathers and floral brocades with flaring, full skirts and monster shoulders; velvet bustier tops and high-waisted over-dyed jeans; and Crayola-bright jackets, capes, and hooded coats. The only filter that separated these clothes from their East Village forebears was the expensive, luxury fabrics they came in. Every girl had a different hairdo, shellacked into Mohawks, flips, and bouffants, and the makeup was straight off the album cover of Duran Duran's Rio. The cumulative effect of all that color, volume, and optimism? One editor called it "A Flock of Seagulls meets Alexis Carrington."

This reminds me of Alexis Carrington from DYNASTY... I think its the 80's hair.
The skirt is amazing and would be fabulous with a simple black t-shirt, tights and boots...

This jacket is amazing!
Look at the way he took a simple gray cashmere pullover unique. I love the cutout on the shoulder

Wonderful pop of color...
