Marc’s Gorky Park
This season, Marc Jacobs turned his attention to Mother Russia for his diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs. There were great, youthful pieces in army green and Soviet red that really spoke to the military trend that’s happening in the marketplace now. I loved his take on the classic ushanka hats — I want me one now!
PS: totally getting flashbacks of the Plushenko clip on NBC’s ice skating program last night – did anyone see it? They totally made him out to be this evil soulless Russian. Of course I can’t find the clip anywhere on their Olympic coverage – thanks a lot, NBC!
