Fashion Review: Marc Jacobs A/W 2013

So I just got the press pack for Marc Jacobs’ Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection.

What it is:

  • a reinterpretation of 1970s retro
  • inspired by paintings of artist Otto Dix, a famous German New Objectivist
  • replaces the usual bold palette with dark tones like burgundy, deep blue, and deep green
  • Silk and sleek fabrics

I only covered the women’s collection here, but you can shoot me a message/comment if you want looks from the men’s collection.

What I love:

Printed Dresses

FW13_Marc by Marc Jacobs_01

specially designed geometric pattern “Etta”/”Luna Patchwork”

FW13_Marc by Marc Jacobs_31

specially designed floral pattern “Marieka Tulip”

FW13_Marc by Marc Jacobs_37 FW13_Marc by Marc Jacobs_40

…and Plain Dresses

I love the effect of the shorter dress under the coat

I really need to get myself one of these…

Good separates to mix up your wardrobe

What I didn’t like:

unflattering cuts. I know it's supposed to be 'retro 70s' but... I wouldn't.

maybe I’m too girly/not statuesque enough for outfits like this. oh, and I’d probably look really ugly with this hairdo…

really awful shoe collection
