Marc by Marc is usually a little too much for us: a little too juvenile, a little too cute, and a little too expensive, given how easily the looks are knocked off by Forever 21. But this year, there was a new sporty sophistication in the clothes. We thought the girls looked ready to depart Greenwich on a yacht, circa 1970: there were big brass buttons, little caps, bright shirtdresses, loafers, and even webbed belts. The accessories were stand-out. The Lego brooches, barrettes, and belt buckles were clever, but it's the "owl lady" bag that we imagine seeing not only chic high school girls toting, but also their older sisters and moms. We think this fresh direction is very savvy. After all, there aren't many 14 year olds who can afford $400 babydoll dresses--and most 25 year olds don't want to look like them. --ANNA FIELDING GRIGGS
