I just came across this Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2013-14 collection (Elle.com) and vaguely recognised something familiar about the models’ hairstyle. Then I realised that yes this voluminous hairstyle, was actually my own hairstyle (well maybe a slightly more exaggerated version)! This concept slightly excited me because I have a very “love hate” relationship with my hair and here it is featured in a designer’s catwalk show! You will have seen my hair in some of my posts but until you meet me you won’t be able to witness the extent of its craziness! I have brown, extremely thick, curly hair which is often frizzy and is a nightmare to tame. However, after seeing this catwalk and them embracing my hairstyle and even Cara Delevingne rocking it, maybe I should learn to embrace my hair somewhat more – Enjoy!
Marc Jacobs’ SS13 collection is in my opinion exquisite! The main trends featured are stripes with red/brown/camel/raspberry and white- Some of the stripey numbers fit into the pyjama trend and others are very striking and bright and remind me of old-fashioned holidays at the beach! In addition there are elements of peplum and lots of outerwear and tops with decorative and extravagant necklines! Marc had also styled a large majority of his coats and jackets worn over bare skin suggesting femininity- it looks very chic! Moreover Marc had also joined in with the uprising trend of the graphic tee- here Marc has used the recognisable face of Mickey Mouse on a grey crop sweat. Above all what really inspired me is the fabulous hair and makeup. A dramatic side fringe paired with a high pony, radiant makeup and a nude lip= perfection!- I made this collage of a selection of pictures (taken from elle.com) from the show and I hope you like!- Enjoy!
