Marc Jacobs vs. The Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter'12 Runway

We know what you are thinking. How can Grazia Daily totally overlook the fact that Marc Jacobs is wearing a pink tennis dress? Well, we can and we will, because (apart from the fact that the shade of candy pink actually quite suits him) the matter in hands right now is far more important – it’s to do with next season’s ‘it’ shoe front runner and the fact that Monsieur Jacobs is a fan of them himself….

Katie Grand In The Pilgrim Shoes At Paris Fashion Week

The be-buckled pilgrim clompy courts from his eponymous Marc Jacob’s A/W’12 runway in NYFW are what we in the biz like to call a ‘marmite shoe’. Some love’ em, some hate ‘em, but what we enjoy is the style debate that’ll rage on all season long. Some fash packers instantly awarded them with must-have status as soon as they stormed the catwalk – and Marc’s bezzie and stylist-and-inspiration-in-chief LOVE editor Katie Grand was spotted wearing them fresh off the catwalk for Paris Fashion Week. So far, so big stamp of approval. Marc has even been so keen to wear them twice – once for his Vuitton catwalk finale and once with the, erm, pink polo dress and socks. But there are some skeptics out there and we understand, it’s a radical change from the very elegant shoes of this season, of which Marc hasn’t sported….

So, what’s your opinion on the pirate-meets-pilgrim style? Will you be swashbuckling your way into fashiondom with them on next season? Or avoiding them like shoulder pads from 2010? We’re quite taken with that purple metallic…. Jus’ saying.
