Marc Jacobs FW12 at NYFW

A Mad Hatter's tea party inspired by Anna Piaggi and Lynn Yaeger.

Marc Jacobs' runway was a Mad Hatters tea party. The set, designed by artist Rachel Feinsten, was befitting of a Broadway production. Jacobs told Feinsten "No castles, no fairytales... I want grottoes.... the Marie Antoinette version of a ruin." What he got was a decrepit paper castle. Garment-wise, there were fur and feathers galore. There was glitter, shine and sheen. Everything was oversized, amplified, blown-out, made bigger - from the prints to the silhouettes to the rhinestone buckles on the boots. Holographic appliques adorned some garments. But it was hard to take your eyes off the hats, which well and truly completed the OTT affair. In multi-coloured mink and garish zebra stripe, they sat big and bold atop models' heads.

It is certain Jacobs had a lot of fun with this collection, and it's easy to imagine it being worn by his muses for the season - sartorially fearless fashion journalists Anna Piaggi and Lynn Yaeger.
