Marc by Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite diffusion lines. Marc Jacobs and Rachel Roy both have such fun diffusion lines that don't sacrifice being fashion forward. They are also always great quality. So many brands seem to change so much from their high fashion lines to their diffusion lines. Marc Jacobs and Rachel Roy (along with a few others) have such clear visions for these lines, it makes it exciting to follow. It's not just a somewhat cute design really cheaply made like so many people do for their lower priced lines or collaborations. In the last year it has seemed that designers starting to put more care into these lines, which is really exciting for someone like myself who can't always buy the pieces from their high fashion collections. Jason Wu's line for Target was really impressive, not just in the design, but also in the fit and quality, while maintaining low Target prices. Wu kept his prices even lower than many other designer collaborations that ended up disappointing in quality. I'm hopeful more designers are on the same path for their high fashion prices collections as Jacobs, Wu, and Roy.
As far as the Marc by Marc Jacobs line goes this skirt and it's matching t-shirt were some of my favorite items from the Marc by Marc Jacobs line. The pattern is so striking. It's stunning.
