Marc Jacobs Fall 2012


 A madcap theatrical extravaganza marked by a wonderfully contradictory explosion of colour, fabric and print. There was an Eliza Doolittle-meets-Helen Bonham Carter-meets-Dior New Look eccentric sensibility-meets-The cat in the Hat, which stamped the Marc Jacobs collection as one of the singular statements of the week.
 An extraordinary collage of almost couture-like fabrics with tooled leather, patchworked duchesse satin, exaggerated houndstooth tweed, tufted tweed, fur with metallic overlays and sequinned or jewelled trims.
