spring/summer 2013 collection has a definite retro vibe, looking to the 1950’s and 1960’s for inspiration with a modern twist. Jacobs cited pop icon and Andy Warhol muse Edie Sedgwick as an inspiration from that time as well.

Paris 2013 show was inspired by “Les Deux Plateaux,” a work by Buren that consists of 260 columns of three different heights arranged in a grid, which has been in Paris’ Palais Royal since 1986. The beautiful music and spoken words were from Phillip Glass’ opera “Einstein on the Beach.”
like Jessica Alba, Kerry Washington, Kristen Dunst and Kirsten Stewart have already been spotted picking up this trend with checkerboard print dresses, coats, jackets and rompers.
