Marc Jacobs – back to the 70s!

70s prints dominated the MJ runway this season...

Marc Jacobs took us back to the 70s at last night’s Spring 2011 ready-to-wear collection.

We were left awe-struck as the bold prints, flowing fabrics and rich colours strutted down the runway – finished with some flowers in the hair and sun hats. On his inspiration, Marc harks back not only to the 70s but the heady days of the 90s supermodels, “I was at Naomi Campbell’s birthday party in Cannes,” Jacobs said backstage, “and all the girls wore these long dresses, and after dancing all night they hitched them up to the waist.”

Something decidedly un-70s was Marc’s full embrace of the Twitter-generation this season. The show streamed live on and backstage shots were posted throughout the night from their twitter account, @MarcJacobsInt.

Mr. Jacobs seems to have found the perfect blend of old and new with this latest collection, a huge thumbs up from Mimi! Now who do I see about getting my hands on that colour blocked gown?
