Kensington, Camden, Carnaby, these names from the Marc Jacobs accessories spring summer 2013 collection let us know that London is the place where the action takes place.
Balmacaan - we just learned this word today -, this sounds like a magic formula.
Stripes, checks and optic prints give birth to a geometric world, but vibrant, bewitching, quite hypnotic ; ruffles, bibs and peplums, tailored skirts and cropped tops come from feminine times, whether the Victorian era or the Sixties.
The focus would be on the waistline, on the way this line attracts the look to draw the whole silhouette and, eventually, the woman's shape.
London + magic + Victorian = Mary Poppins. We think of her in this collection. Her fantasy could be the real only essential accessory for every woman.
Here are our favorite looks from the Marc Jacobs spring summer 2013 collection that was presented in New York a few days ago.
