Marc Jacobs Fall 2012: Mad Hatter Mashup

Marc Jacobs is unfailingly the highlight of my New York Fashion Week. With a paper pop-up set designed by friend and artist Rachel Feinstein, the pretty-much-legendary designer did what he does best by creating a whole new world that makes us think about the purpose of fashion.

Everyone's talking about the larger-than-life, Comme des Garçons-esque velour top hats—they were fun—but I'm more interested in the beautifully seamed brocade dresses, the massive wool scarves/shawls that were secured with oversized safety pins and those pilgrim shoes with the big, sparkly buckles.

Jacobs was able to pull incredibly different elements together in a magical, balanced way. (Who else can pair sparkly scarves with windowpane plaid and make it look right?) In doing so, he made us fall in love with fashion all over again.
