Season's Round Up # 32: MARC JACOBS SPRING-SUMMER 2013 SHOWS

Marc Jacobs is a true fashion genius. His 2 shows during NYFW were well-received and it’s because each show is as refreshing as the last.

For his Marc Jacobs SS2013 Women’s RTW Line, we’ll see a collection that is stripe-d down, a far cry from the previous season’s that showcased a lot of layers, textures and patterns. The focal point of the collection would be the use of stripes and it’s a welcome change. The models looked like fashionable prisoners – in an amazing way! All in all it was a sparse, casual and lean showing, evoking a sense of modernized 60’s mod. Everything was clean and very much so focused on the basics of fashion. And I thought that in these elements, his sheer brilliance just shown.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs show is a whole another story. Though we still see stripes throughout the collection, seemingly as the thread of his SS2013 inspiration, the pieces from his sub-line is much more vibrant. Here you’ll see that layering and patterns rule the runway. Vibrancy is still very much in effect and I guess it’s hard to tone that down if that is your label’s backbone. That being said, I enjoyed this show very much so. It was fun, vivacious and uber chic! Don’t mind getting caught wearing pieces from this show next season.
