Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 2011

Frizz is in, if Marc Jacobs has his way for Spring/Summer 2011.

As with his higher end line, Jacobs once again turned to Redken’s Guido Palau to take the reigns for this season’s Marc by Marc Jacobs show hair looks. In the same vein as with what we saw at the Marc Jacobs show, which took place the night before, the hair was all about a Grace Coddington-esque pouf.

Using pin curls and straight pins set in a zig-zag motion, Palau created a frizzy, voluminous look that was made all the more eye catching with the make-up conceived by Shiseido’s Dick Page.

Among the most notable touches was Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Day Lily, which was topped with Orange Pigment Powder on the lips (launching Spring 2011). If we needed more evidence than the look created by Estee Lauder at Sunday’s Derek Lam show that orange was THE color to watch out for come Spring, this is it.

This bold beauty look was a complement to the vibrantly wearable and youthful contemporary collection that was, this season, inspired by lingerie and dancers.

Bubbling with colors, stripes, and bright yellows and reds, there were also a number of more muted neutral, khaki, and rusty-colored looks, along with some patterns (including one done in collaboration with artist Jesse Langille), to give the younger Marc Jacobs customer plenty to choose from in what appears to be a very optimistic line-up.
