Quirky New Line Does Mixed-Up Preppy-Boho-Grunge With Fantastic Ease

Marc Jacobs' diffusion line, Marc by Marc, was known for doing a deliciously fun, quirky mash-up of playful, dishelved grunge and pretty-girl chic in the early '90s, which made it seem, to us, anyway, much more imaginative than his own namesake line. And though we're not entirely sure we've liked its recent direction, a new lookbook from Aussie line My Pet Square recalled that same sort of devil-may-care, punk-grunge attitude of early Marc. There are little schoolgirl-esque jumpers layered over floral blouses or plaid onesies, slouchy paperbag shorts paired with ankle boots and knit tights, and even an amazing fur pillbox hat that we're hoping will make a comeback this fall. Their selection for men is less extensive, but we hope we see a dude wearing that utilitarian jacket walking down the street hand-in-hand with a girl wearing that oversized hoodie. Goes together like peanut butter and jelly. (Knight Cat)
