Marc Jacobs S/S 09 Bags: Puts Everyone Else to Shame

09 September 2008, 21.30 | Posted in Accessories, Art, Design, Fashion | No comments »

If you want, you can see photo stills of Marc’s collection over at Style, which has a cool feature that enables you to zero in on one or two of the model’s accessories. That’s where I pulled this bag image from.

MJSS09bag Marc Jacobs S/S 09 Bags: Puts Everyone Else to Shame

Marc is to bags like Nike is to sneakers. He does what he does so well that he makes it look simple. Like he was born to do it. And okay, he doesn’t always hit a homerun–the Rolls Royce bag springs to mind, but he usually does. (And to be honest, this photo doesn’t even do the bag justice and it’s not even the best one in the collection.)

Marc Jacobs: S/S 09 Fashion Week: Shoes and Schvitzing Only!

09 September 2008, 16.57 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

I’m not sure why, but at WireImage, the only images featured from the Marc Jacobs show, aka the most-coveted NY Fashion Week ticket in town, were some shots of shoes and the rich and famous backstage. Oh well, when it comes to Marky-Marc, we’ll take whatever shreds we can get!

MJShoes2 Marc Jacobs: S/S 09 Fashion Week: Shoes and Schvitzing Only!

^^Interesting. The ones in the center remind me of a praying mantis for some reason.

UPDATE: Marc has a video of S/S 09 on his site. It’s beautiful. The overall look is a tad buttoned up for my tastes, but almost every outfit includes an item, whether a jacket, bag or skirt, that is highly covetable. I think he got yelled at by critics for being too conservative in his last show so maybe this is an answer to that.

On the flip, images of Vic Beckham sporting her new pixie, plus her, Marc and Jennie from the Block all schvitzing. Even the rich and famous sweat.

Marc Jacobs Rolls Royce Bag: Total Mixed Reviews but Still Selling Out

04 September 2008, 21.09 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Stores | No comments »

Last night the bossman sent us a link to Net-A-Porter, but when I clicked on it, I was informed that, sorry, but the item was already sold out. "What was that?" I queried bossman, and he told me that it was the Marc Jacobs Rolls Royce bag (which is not yet sold out at Saks).

MJRRClutchSaks Marc Jacobs Rolls Royce Bag: Total Mixed Reviews but Still Selling Out

^^Funny thing is, while it’s sold out, I noticed that on handbag sites its reviews were very mixed (which is a polite way of saying totally negative)!

My fave review came from a saddened Gizmodiva, who is normally a big MJ fan: "It really doesn’t look like anything he has ever offered before (everyone makes mistakes!). I am not sure if you would even want to be seen with it…"

Marc Jacob: Bubble Dress w/ a Twist of Lemon

15 August 2008, 21.54 | Posted in Fashion, Stores | No comments »

Ladies love Marc because he does the bubble dress that everyone else is doing, but adds two or three details that make it….

….just about 14 ounces cooler than every other offering on the block. (Warning note: This one is only for the very young and sexy. Anyone else, you’re taking a chance of being on the receiving end of some serious mockery.)

Available at Net-A-Porter.com (which, again, what’s with using the cheap-Conway-looking, plastic mannequin to model a high fashion dress–ugh!)

Marc Jacobs Bag @ ShopBop: Small-Minded

27 May 2008, 18.05 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

An interview with Pat Field was featured on PerezHilton exclusively yesterday. Given her considerable talents, it was pretty interesting to listen to her breakdown her style choices for the Sex & the City movie. One thing she mentioned was a move toward smaller bags.

This Marc Jacobs bag recently added to ShopBop sure does speak to the trend (for scale reference, the zipper is seven inches long):

^^Small bag that packs a huge strap!

(On another note, I feel like such utter crap today. I was out in the sun and fresh air for a whole three days and after five months of grey skies and 40-degree weather, I do believe my body is suffering from a state of shock!)

If you’re looking to get a Marc Jacobs fix for spring and you can’t/don’t want to pay full price, BlueFly has a bunch of new items of his for spring.

BlackGirlintheCity: It Aint Over ‘Til It’s Over!”

20 April 2008, 02.34 | Posted in Books, Other | No comments »

BlackGirlintheCity is a site you visit when you’ve done all the pretty pictures and you find yourself hankering for something a little more substantial. Words that’ll actually make you think, ya know??

I linked to her hysterical recount of an encounter with a Marc-Jacobs-bag-owning idiot not long ago, but the story I’m linking to here is a little different. In it, she talks about shedding an ex. Like any good writer, she writes in layers and while she reveals what she believes are her own lessons, there’s plenty of space between the lines for us to draw our OWN conclusions.

Here’s an excerpt:

My ex has finally decided to move on.  Good for effing him!  Lol.  We were the best of friends with a strong history until true feelings got involved.  Its funny how people tend to be on their worse behavior when falling or being in love.

BlackGirlOverYou  BlackGirlintheCity: It Aint Over Til Its Over!

^^Dear BlackGirl: He so aint over you!

And as for her comment on Hillary, she said it, not me! And though I gave up using the word bitch as a 2008 resolution, I hafta admit Hill is pushing me to the damn edge!

Still missing you!

Marc Jacobs = Tony Montana??

10 April 2008, 17.48 | Posted in Other | No comments »

I’m sorry ’cause I know this is really juvenile and has nothing to do with anything, but ever since I did that post about Murakami at the Brooklyn Museum, I can’t stop obsessing about how Marc Jacobs’ look that night.

AnnaWintour Marc Jacobs = Tony Montana??

^^There’s La Diabla on the left and beautiful mess Marc on the right….and I defy you to deny his resemblence to….

Scarface movie 02 Marc Jacobs = Tony Montana??

^^Tony Montana!

Change Marc’s earrings with Tony’s gold chains and it’s a done deal. I dare you to tell me I’m lying!

The Devil Went Down to Brooklyn!!! OMG!

04 April 2008, 16.04 | Posted in Art | No comments »

The opening for the Murakami show at Brooklyn Museum was last night and looky-loo and who was there! None other than the devil herself!!

AnnaWintour The Devil Went Down to Brooklyn!!! OMG!

^^She probably helicoptored in and landed on the roof of the museum to avoid driving through the streets of Brooklyn so she wouldn’t have to hurt her eyes gazing upon humans—gasp!!–who don’t make a gazillion dollars/year. That’s Marc on the right of course. He did another bag collabo with Murakami and it launched in conjunction with opening night.

And if you weren’t there, don’t feel bad (even though it would have been fun to see Kanye perform no matter what). Look at the pictures after the fold and you’ll see that launch night parties at museums are filled with boring-ass people who have the social skills of hamsters. I’m NOT lying. Seriously.

I Hate These Shoes

01 April 2008, 15.53 | Posted in Shoes | No comments »

I’m considering just giving up and being in a foul mood today. Usually I fight surly feelings, but dammit, if you, like me, like in New York, you look outside your window it’s hard NOT to be annoyed. Yet another gloomy, sort of cold day, which would be okay, except that this is about the 180th day in a row that we’ve had this weather! C’mon Ma Nature, give us a break! Or at least a peak at the sun that lasts for more than two hours!

On that craptastic note, there are two designer shoe styles this “spring” that have been getting tons of editorial press. I’ve been hemming and hawing on my feelings for them, but recently I made a decision to just flat out hate them. It’s news to note ’cause normally I like both of these designers and also, I’m not quick to hate. There’s stuff I love and then there’s all the other shoes that I couldn’t care less about.

Here they are, as featured in the last issue of Elle magazine (which I still love):

ShoesIHate.jpg I Hate These Shoes

^^Ignore the green shoe. I don’t who it’s by and I don’t care. First up, the weirdo heel shoe, No. 3, by Marc Jacobs. It just looks dumb and it seems like it’s being different just to be different. Like there’s no substance or thought behind it. Part of it I guess is I’ve never been a fan of whimsy when it comes to fashion. Everything in its place and a place for everything and don’t try and put pom-poms on the hem of a dress and think it’s cute ’cause everyone knows the only place they look right is on a piece of furniture. Same with this heel–put it where it belongs! And then the Giuseppe Zanotti shoe in the back. At first I thought I liked it, but the more I looked at it the less I did. I’m sorry, but even with the cut out, it’s too clunky and difficult looking, and it keeps reminding me of a comedy I once saw, featuring a pimp whose platforms contained a mini-aquarium, complete with goldfish. Smack some plexi-glass on Guiseppe’s shoes, throw some fish in there and you’d have the same deal.

Bitterly yours,
