the EDGE STYLE # 35

We all know how Marc Jacobs did the 90s some justice---by turning it into one rebellious and ultra cool age, and it's probably because of his grunge chic style that makes everything and anything MJ sooooo effortlessly cool.
The appeal of Marc by Marc Jacobs is hands down wearable. The fairly loose trousers paired with loose sweaters and slouchy outerwear seemed pretty easy to pull off. Of course, having the haircut (like most of the models in the show) would add some more points, but even with normal hair, these looks aren't out-of-this-world.
Though most of Jacobs' looks were soft and breathable, the collection was undeniably put together. Suits sported pointy, tailored shoulders with gray pocket squares. And even though the trousers weren't second-skin tight, they fell perfectly over Jacobs' superb shoes. The colors were sober (pretty much the mood of Fall 2010) with red and orange as the most energetic hues. Grays, blacks, khakis and olives made for a military-chic palette.
After the 18 looks of Marc by Marc Jacobs, it's not only wearability that Jacobs is's pleasing his disciples and his future fans with clothes that are sober, cleaned-up grunge chic and effortlessly cool.
