Marc Jacobs -Two Thousand and Ten Nights

 drawing by marguerita

This one did. “I had fun,” Mr. Jacobs said 

Afterward, shrugging, as if it were that simple. Pulling off the combination of Eastern and Western styles — European and Asian — took some finesse. (In the end, it all blended together.) The layers and proportions were tricky; almost every outfit consisted of layers, usually with sheer, hosiery-like leggings as the main underpinning. And there were ruffles and frills everywhere: coating slim dresses, spilling over tailored pinstriped jackets, spiraling around long jersey dresses, finishing rompers. But the overall effect of this terrific presentation was a free-spirited attack of fashion, a wide comfort zone with different textures and assumptions about what is pretty and feminine. http://runway.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/14/marc-jacobs-now-man/?ref=fashion
