I’m a sucker for Marc Jacobs and his Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection only intensified my love for his playful and vibrant style. Although there are pieces that are just plain weird (as any collection has), MJ never ceases to put on a good show with his simple yet brilliantly colored designs. I think the bathing suits were my favorite part of this collection. The subtle ruffles paired with bright stripes are reminiscent of the 1950s and make me want to grab a towel and oversized shades and head right down to the beach.
Small, bright clutches are the perfect accessory for these beautifully tailored a-line skirts and cocktail dresses–very feminine and youthful. As for the guys? I love how MJ is not afraid to add some pop to these designs, like a loud floral shirt under a classic trench and trousers.
