Spring 2007 Fashion Week Notebook | Marc by Marc Jacobs

Key Takeaways: With themes ranging from 20s glamour and the mod 60s, the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection felt like a microcosm of Fashion Week.  Just as the Spring 2007 season is all about pieces–not outfits, the Marc by Marc collection is all about specific looks, not a focused message. 

Color Palette: All over the map.  Neutrals–olives, whites, and greys–were accompanied by celadon green, grass green, orange, turquoise, yellow, and purple.

Silhouettes: Key silhouettes included mod 60s shifts, drop waist styles, trapeze style coats, cuffed shorts, voluminous sleeves, and oversized tops over dresses. For men, loose pants, shorts, cuffed styles, deep v-neckline styles, three piece suits, and trenchcoats.

Accessories Report: Oversized top-handle bags, caps, long, thin scarves, white-rimmed glasses, long necklaces,  and sneakers for women.  For men, caps, suspenders, nerd glasses, and sneakers.

What’s Wearable: An indigo-navy drop waist shift with a curved waistline ruffle (pictured).  For men, we love the three piece suit with sneakers.

What’s Not Wearable:
For women, a patchwork hippie print dress that confuses the eye with its multitude of patterns.  For men, a  white deep-v shirt that would feel right at home in the women’s collection.

    [...] Spring 2007 is all about pieces–and about continuing, not departing from, the big trend from Fall 2006: volume.  Bubble silhouettes, trapeze shapes, and puff sleeves all graced the runway.  Neutral colors continue their run as well as designers combine shades of black, white, and grey with accent colors from royal blue to fire engine red.  SILHOUETTESControlled VolumeAshleigh Verrier, Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, Y & Kei, Proenza SchoulerHigh Waisted StylesDerek Lam, Cynthia Steffe, Zac PosenDrop Waist StylesMarc by Marc Jacobs, Doo Ri, Ports 1961Babydoll ShapesJay McCarroll, Derek Lam, Peter Som, Cynthia Steffe, Ports 1961, Atil KutogluBubble SilhouettesMarc Jacobs, Ports 1961, Sass & Bide, Tuleh,  Oscar de la Renta, AraksTrapeze ShapesReem Acra, BCBG, Peter Som, Ports 1961Tulip SilhouettesPeter Som, Ports 1961, Atil Kutoglu, Y & KeiDouble Breasted StylesY & Kei, Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen, Marc by Marc JacobsDETAILINGRufflesPorts 1961, Betsey Johnson, Zac Posen, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Y & KeiCuffed StylesZac Posen, Manuel, Trovata, Kai Kühne, Jay McCarroll, Peter SomTops with PeplumsAshleigh Verrier, Tocca, Carolina HerreraTuxedo DetailingDoo Ri, Oscar de la Renta, Marc by Marc JacobsWide StrapsAshleigh Verrier, Reem Acra, Sass & Bide, Proenza Schouler, Peter Som, Narciso RodriguezDresses with PocketsSass & Bide, Derek LamPuff SleevesReem Acra, Tuleh, Y & Kei, Peter Som, Doo Ri, Marc by Marc JacobsNautical Ashleigh Verrier, Trovata, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Cynthia SteffeEyeletCarolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Jenni KayneOversized CollarsCarolina Herrera, Jenni Kayne Grecian DrapingCarolina Herrera, Doo Ri,  Zac PosenBlack and White ColorsAraks, Carolina Herrera, TulehAccent Color: RedCostello Tagliapietra, Reem Acra, Atil Kutoglu, Zac PosenFlutter SleevesBCBG, Narciso Rodriguez, Atil Kutoglu, Jenni Kayne, Zac PosenKimono SleevesBaby Phat, Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam, Ports 1961Off the Shoulder SleevesCarolina Herrera, Calvin Klein, Ports 1961, Proenza Schouler, Y & KeiDotsMarc by Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Jay McCarrollWild GraphicsDiane von Furstenberg, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Tocca, Oscar de la Renta, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jay McCarrollKnits & CrochetDerek Lam, Ports 1961, Marc by Marc JacobsStripesJohn Bartlett, Ashleigh Verrier, Peter Som, Atil Kutoglu, Zac Posen, Jay McCarrollChevron StripesJay McCarroll, J.
