paris - clearly, i am one fashion writer who has no problem being enthusiastic about my subjects. i just finished reading sarah mower's hot/cold review of the marc jacobs collection on style.com. she ended it off saying " otherwise though, (i.e. with the exception of a few looks) it was lumpy going." i beg to differ, yes - the shapes (like what a lot of other designers offered this season) are blousy, big, and bulbous - but no, there was nothing at all lumpy about it. the genius is that these pieces, many of which resembled spheres (can you tell i read my thesaurus this morning!?), still managed to be sleek and sexy. as a designer, marc jacobs has either confused me (never got the frenzy over his collections) or alienated me with his (increasingly) anti-press attitude. but with this collection, i am officially a fan. there are no two ways about it: it's fresh, bold, and simply good clothing. oh and don't even get me started on the dope, fez-like headgear!
