After the critics have spoken, consumers have a chance to weigh in. They cast votes for spring 2005 by visiting the Web pages of designers on Style.com, the site of Vogue and W, which, like WWD, are both part of Advance Publications Inc. For several seasons running the winner has been Marc Jacobs. While the usual suspects are all present and accounted for, one newcomer, Buddhist Punk’s Nick Morely, a London-based designer and favorite of aging rockers, squeaked in at number 19.
MARC JACOBS Page views: 1,393,631 For the third season in a row, Marc Jacobs’ collection had the most page views of any New York designer on Style.com. He featured bow-necked sweaters in ginghams and dots and full, swishing skirts and dresses that WWD pronounced “divine.”
ZAC POSEN Page views: 931,702 Posen, who moved up from number 11 to second place in the rankings, favored hourglass shapes, maritime motifs and showstopping gowns for spring. Some looks were a tad kooky. WWD said one riotous dress “looked like a Missoni gone mad.”
CAROLINA HERRERA Page views: 921,258 Herrera, who was inspired by Forties interiors, used aqua, red and ivory for sweaters, shorts and swimsuits. Silk sundresses and camp shirts were wrapped at the waist and dresses and gowns were decorated with embroidery.
OSCAR DE LA RENTA Page views: 914,469 Oscar de la Renta, whose far-flung travels are often reflected in his clothes, made an ikat with the bold colors of India and featherweight caftans reminiscent of Saint Tropez in the Sixties. De la Renta also embarked on a nautical theme.
RALPH LAUREN Page views: 851,355 Ralph Lauren’s collection for spring, “De-lovely,” was an homage to the refined style of Thirties Hollywood. The glamorous clothes included embellished sweaters, beaded jeans and period accessories, such as diamond brooches.
MARC BY MARC JACOBS Page views: 844,804 WWD found the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection charming and quirky with its long, oversized, printed tank tops, vests and blouses piled on one another. Accessories included diamonds, beaded cloches and a marabou tickler.
