While I love, love, love Marc Jacobs, I'm just not feeling this collection. I'm afraid that I'm one of those who has been "spoiled" by his previous collections...that mix of edginess with a dash of "dazzle." Oh well, since this is just a preview, maybe the "dazzle" is yet to come.
Marc Jacobs has turned to the past in his fall ’11 women’s footwear collection. Much like the polka-dot ready-to-wear offering that pays homage to his collection from 20 years ago, Jacobs’ fall shoes channel yesteryear, with Victorian-inspired mid-calf lace-up boots color-blocked in midnight blue, ruby and the occasional hunter green. In addition, suede ankle boots with circular toggles in the same color palette and in white are reminiscent of days gone by. But Jacobs also looks ahead with futuristic booties and boots on white wedges. The collection will retail between $895 and $1,795 at high-end accounts, Marc Jacobs boutiques and Marcjacobs.com.
