Marc Jacobs

Autumn 11

The look At first glance Marc Jacobs’ use of polka dots felt dated, but an elegant appeal shone through on surface texture and pattern cutting, as Jacobs worked 1920s themes and hip and bottom-accentuating silhouettes. Tops were styled beneath short-sleeved dresses.

Key pieces A knee-length dress with sleeves ending just above the elbow was gorgeously tailored and had a pin-up girl sophistication. Spots were used in the form of velvet appliqué, Barbarella-style discs suspended in flight - like fish scales on pencil skirts - or as straightforward spotty prints.

Commercial appeal Spots and dots are always an easy sell - they flooded the high street in spring 10 - so expect to see them on shopfloors for autumn 11, though this time on more sophisticated silhouettes.
