Clever Couture: Marc Jacobs from catwalk to high street
Published 02/09/2011 | 05:00
Marc Jacobs loves a retro vibe to come coursing through the veins of his Marc by Marc collections. This season it was a '70s /' 40s medley but nothing too overt. Hints and whispers from the decades came together with gusto. Case in point with this look: a wide-brimmed hat, bug eye amber shades and a tight, long sleeve tee in that oh-so-important shade of mustard yellow.
It may remind you of bananas and being five but either way, you better make your peace with it now, because this colour is destined for stardom this season.
If you're having difficulty, take a leaf from Marc, couple it with bronze for a touch of opulence. This leather midi skirt from River Island is the perfect high-street alternative. It's a tricky length, so pair with heels for optimum impact.
