MARC GROWS UP
New York: The Marc by Marc man grew up a little this season, sporting a more prominent, tailored look than usual for the boyish, less expensive bridge line of Marc Jacobs. Pant silhouettes were new – stovepipe trousers with pleats, crisp creases, cuffed hems and high rises replaced the shrunken, cropped and/or skinny styles of past collections. Twills and denims were notably absent, and in their place were woolen herringbones and speckled tweeds. Though silhouettes and fabrics felt a bit mature, a mildly offbeat, autumnal 70s color palette and retro sporty footwear kept the mood hip.
