Is Marc Jacobs asleep at the wheel? Maybe not, but he certainly was feeling sleepy. That’s what we’ve surmised by going through his pajama-themed Fall 2013 collection. After being cancelled last week thanks to a non-fashion-loving blizzard, the show finally went on last night.
You know how you’ve been seeing a lot of pajama blouses lately? Apparently Marc decided to imitate not innovate, and sent plenty sleepwear inspired pieces down the runway. He paired them with sharp pencil skirts and over-sized coats in a collection that recalled Daniel Vosovic’s “Project Runway” pieces.
Then there was the “will never look good on anyone” capri-length purple sparkle jumpsuit. Style.com called the collection “stripped down and irony-free” but you really can’t expect me to take that jumpsuit seriously.
Did we like the collection? Overall, definitely. Will we be able to afford the collection? Not on your life.
