|Marc by Marc Jacobs s/s 2013|
Nobody is as cool, creative and original as the wonderful mr. Marc Jacobs. Come to think that each year he designs 12 -that is TWELVE!- collections, four for each of the brands he is head of design, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton and Marc by Marc Jacobs, makes him the hardest working person in the fashion industry. The fact that he somehow manages to have a different vision for each brand, makes him the most talented designer of his time. My first purchase was a Marc by Marc Jacobs denim logo printed bag, back when the logo was Marc -in bold letters- Jacobs. I loved it and felt so special wearing it, and that was only the beginning. Lots of pairs of shoes came afterwards, flats, flatforms, pumps, rain boots, lots of tshirts too, bags, perfumes and somehow I always felt that Marc "gets me" and I get him.

"... nor for stripes", he must have thought afterwards and designed his amazing spring/summer 2013 Marc Jacobs collection, with the striped, two piece skirt suits, simple cuts and those four "I-would-easily-wear-this" maxi long sleeved dresses (now available for pre-order through moda operandi ). In the same graphic spirit his Marc by Marc Jacobs line (also available through moda operandi clothes and accessories), came out more young and playful, with mixed patterns and those lovely scarves wrapped around the waist or worn as turbans. So although they were two totally different collections they were somehow coherent.
Looking forward for the Louis Vuitton show later in Paris, especially after last season's train station extravaganza, I have a feeling this one will be toned down luxury.
