Marc by Marc Jacobs SS 2013


This is a brief insight on Marc by Marc Jacobs collection for Spring/Summer 2013.


A touch of layering infused with a hefty dose of Bananarama style, circa “Cruel Summer,” the Marc by Marc Jacobs women’s collection charmed with a relaxed attitude. Oversize shirts were tucked into rolled-up baggy pants, a full-skirted peplum dress was worked in faded floral denim and striking patchwork designs combined checks, gingham and paisley for a youthful zest. The show’s cool styling (scarves for belts and hair accessories) offered countless ways a girl can put her irreverent wardrobe together.
For his men, Jacobs played up cargo pants, his version with jumbo pockets that added a fun touch. His soft tailoring — a key men’s trend this season — was rendered with a slouchy touch. Jacobs also layered in stripes and musical note prints, which added a sweet tune to the overall feel.

Looks for Everyone, All Mixed Together

Juergen Teller, the photographer, was there in the front row of the Marc by Marc Jacobs show wearing a T-shirt and onion-skin running shorts. Harry Louis, Mr. Jacobs’s beau, was wearing a kilt. Two of the Jonas brothers were dressed more wholesomely in rolled khakis and a windbreaker.

The point is that there’s a little something for everyone at a Marc by Marc Jacobs show, especially on the runway. And the design team that works on the designer’s lower-priced line appeared to be having a great time this season, coming up with layered looks that were slightly reminiscent of the Maasai people, the stars of street-style photography, newsboys and perhaps a greaser or two. It was great fun, the way the styles were all mixed together.

You could pull out a number of covetable items as well. For women, there were a blue and neon pink checked dress that looked delightfully sloppy, multistripe sweaters, gingham swimsuits with ruffles on the sides and an oatmeal jacquard coat covered in sparkly dots. For guys, there were rolled cargo pants that were super loose and slouchy and short-sleeve shirts printed with cartoon skulls and musical notes. The bags were also clever. Handbags in bright green or orange were made of clear plastic on one side, so you could see whatever was inside.
