Marc Jacobs' fall collection screamed severity as lace, latex, brocades, and extreme pencil skirts marched down the runway to Marylin Manson's "The Beautiful People". It was a far cry from the glam and lightness of his seventies inspired spring collection. Chin straps held on miniature berets and uber-tight below the knee pencil skirts were shown in latex, brocade and large-scale polka dots. The wasp waists and play on proportions added to the strictness of the pieces. Overall, this collection was quite a surprise as well as reminscent of Prada and Comme de Garcons.
