Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite designers, not necessarily for his designs, which aren’t that brilliant, but for the impeccable styling of his shows and for the straightforward American spirit he sends forth.
Marc is a great stylist and I always find out new ways to wear basic wardrobe pieces or new color combinations. His Fall 2007 collection has a retro vibe, straight lines reminding of twenties Art Deco fashion and of the late eighties high society. Or so it seems to me.
I especially like this outfit because of that spicy red leather pleated skirt. I looked for a similar one but all I could come with was a straight red leather skirt I found on eBay.
