Specs seen at marc by marc jacobs AW12 at New York Fashion Week. Oh, and Daria.

Showing his diffusion line; marc by Marc Jacobs at New York Fashion Week, the designer contradicted his mainline vibe with a strictness that was immediately followed with outbreaks of playful bouclé, mohair, Lurex, lamé, and perforated velvet, which, like the sparkly-buckled pilgrim shoes in which Jacobs took his finale bow, pointed to pleasures beyond the regimented pale.

His army donned pillar box red lips and flawlessly clean skin, whilst almost cartoon like glasses were used to accessorize selected looks, mirroring that of 90s doodle, Daria.
