Marc Jacobs was feeling a little kinky as he explored and glamorized fetishes [through fashion]. In some cases, the intention was clearly evident such as in the leather corset-like pieces, the officer/military hats and the lace-up dominatrix boots. Sexy silk stockings and uniform jackets added to the mix.
On more subtle fetish-like planes, there were dress up motifs like puffy sleeves and "Peter Pan" collars. There were retro looks that reminded me of librarians (if they were very chic). Most of these looks were very structured and very Parisian.
Jacobs was quoted as saying the motivation for the collection was women's "inexplicable obsession with bags" which got him thinking about and investigating the types of things women are passionate about requiring "discipline."
My personal favorites are the sheer dresses and though you may not be able to wear them as such in public, they sure make for great runway. [Let's not forget the stunning handbags, btw!]
