There is always enough inventory in a Marc Jacobs show to fill a Wal-Mart but sadly for the masses, Wal-Mart doesn't do Jacob's double faced voiles. Nor does it do candy-coloured, bun gripping satins and certainly not voluminous taffeta that is crispy enough to stand on its own. This collection was packed with visual delights (including, in the material madness, a playful skip down to Missoni's Varese knitwear factory) and it shouted uncomplicated fun. There were stiff, oversized suits with safari influences, silky jumpsuits, highwaisted shorts, hotpants, and long, unbridled dresses aching for a dance floor. The 1970s feel was brought to life further by maximalist styling, which included enormous 3D exotic flowers.
