At first, this collection comes off as quite plain; personally, I thought it to be too heavy with the baroque prints and too basic in its styling. However, at further glance, there is a lot going right with Marc Jacobs Resort collection. From the tailoring, to the details (sequins, crystal embellishments, metallic leathers), to the accessories — this collection makes subtle statements which are uniquely directional. While I don't disagree that Marc Jacobs is starting to lose some of his charm and star-quality that once made him the talk-of-the-town, he's a talent which presents intelligent clothing — it's marketable, thoughtful, and shows his maturity as a designer. Full collection after the jump.
