Marc Jacobs’ latest spring collection is nothing but Stunning! It is nothing like what the designer did last year; if you thought a New York’s cityscape inspired couture collection was Marc Jacobs at its finest, you have got to see the new spring 2018 lineup by the designers. Oversized menswear re-designed appropriately for women, simple yet adorable floral patterns, the intricate yet chic detailing of charms – the latest designs of this American designer are a refreshing break from what we have been seeing so far. Cherry on the top has to be the shoe collection of this line though.
Like always, accessories including gloves, head turbans, bags and shoes were paid special attention by the designer and the end results took the breath away of the audience. Keeping up with last year’s tradition, Marc Jacobs’s spring 2018 collection, was unveiled at Park Avenue Armory this year as well. The collection was named “Somewhere” and very appropriately so, since this collection actually transcends you ‘somewhere’ else. It is like you are re-imagining spring in New York in some other tropical and exotic location – and it just so happens that you have the perfect footwear for that too.
Marc Jacobs has redefined the spring 2018 shoe trends for the runways. The designer has dared to instill a very vivid, flamboyant and loud vibe to the footwear and if the fashion guru’s verdict is to be believed, this is a trend that will take over the street style fashion by storm as well. The latest spring shoe collection by Marc Jacobs makes one question if shoes are going to be the next fashion statement for the coming season. And the answer might just be yes!
If you look at the Marc Jacobs clothing lineup for spring 2018 – we see a lot of solid colored loose-structured men’s inspired power suits and chiffon-like soft, flowy gowns in psychedelic patterns and a very retro, throwback to 60s fashion inspired head turbans. While all of it is very pleasing on the eye – it necessarily does not scream spring. Here enters the funky bold tassel shoes and it all blends together in a perfect spring-y vibe.
While tassel earrings were huge during last spring and summers, who would have thought that this trend could actually be introduced in footwear. It enters Marc Jacobs and his daring creative faculties. From day-wear boots, to pretty practical flip-flops to flat sandals – the fashion house kept the basic structure and style of its shoe line for spring 2018 very casual and in accordance with the everyday wardrobe of an individual. However, the adornment of pompoms, tassels, gemstones and other accent pieces is what distinguished them with your other ordinary footwear choices.
The spring 2018 shoe collection by Marc Jacobs was a total color-feast for the eyes. While the style is practical enough to suit everybody, we still think it would cater best to the needs of high spirited and fashion forward women who do not shy away from trying something new and always on a hunt for accessories to make a fashion statement.
