Cruella's Assistant: I thought we liked stripes this year.
Cruella De Vil: What kind of sycophant are you?
Cruella's Assistant: Uh... what kind of sycophant would you like me to be?
This year, dahling's, we like polkas. Lots and lots of polkas. Immediately, when I saw the Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, I thought of 101 Dalmatians. If Cruella wasn't even a little bit of inspiration for MJ, well, I'll be damned. 'Cause this collection was polka & spot mad. Polka hats, polka tights, polka bags, polka dresses, polka trousers, polka skirts. And we all know, Cruella loved spots & polkas.
However, back to the real world, I just love looking at this collection. It is fun, sophisticated and demurely sexy. If you are not overly keen on polkas, then look at the lace dresses and the (almost) hidden polka tights. Those dresses are magnificent. I love the colour palette, Jacobs used and of course, the materials are beyond luxurious. The whole collection is polished to a polka!
But, that is just my (love of polka) opinion. What is yours? Do you like?
