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.

All signs point to yes, because the fashion visionary has snagged a deal with Sephora to formulate his debut cosmetics collection alongside the über-popular beauty chain. Keep reading »
Marc Jacobs attended the Louis Vuitton exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris last week wearing this semi-sheer knee-length pink polo dress. When I was 12, I had my own knee-length pink polo dress from Lands’ End (which was also semi-sheer, although it took me a year to realize it), and I can confidently say that Marc looks way better in his.
