March to the Beat

Marc Jacobs loves a good band jacket. Never one to pass up a playful reference to alternative youth, Marc Jacobs is literally inspired by marching bands. Over the years marching band inspired jackets (in various incarnations) have made their way onto the Marc Jacobs runway culminating in an actual marching band opening his Spring 2006 collection show. This week at the Studio City store there was a fun assortment of Marc Jacobs shoes as well as some vintage marching band uniforms that looked as though they came straight from the Marc Jacobs archives.


I was particularly fond of these wedge boots with bright blue laces.
