NYFW Spring/Summer 2010: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein
Marc by Marc Jacobs
Giant bunny head bows and pink lips were only two of the elements that made Marc by Marc Jacob’s Spring 2010 collection absolutely adorable. Cute, playful, and true to the brand’s quirky aesthetic, the collection featured a lot of bright colors, zany mixed prints, and 40s-style dresses that came together to create youthful, wearable pieces (especially considering the absence of sky-high platforms!) that somehow manage to fit together perfectly.
Francisco Costa retained Calvin Klein’s signature minimalistic aesthetic for Spring 2010 with garments that truly looked like works of art. He was inspired by California fiber artist Ferne Jacobs’ basket work and Calvin Klein’s spring 1994 collection; Costa’s take was very relaxed and natural, giving the garments an organic feel. Loose-fitting dresses, light fabrics, flat Japanese-inspired sandals, earthy tones and crumpled textures all came together to form a refreshing and seemingly simple collection, though the textures and structure were anything but – the needle-punched detailing and subtle layering made this more than your standard minimalistic 90s-throwback collection.
