New York: It’s never seemed more appropriate to show a collection at an armory than the F/W 10 Marc by Marc Jacobs show. While the secondary line’s targeted customer has admittedly grown up a bit over the last two seasons, this showing was by far the most mature and chic yet. The clothes were almost all inspired by the utilitarian aspects of soldiers’ uniforms, with olive melton wool pants, belted trench coats, CPO jackets, scoop-neck tees with a subtle camouflage patterns marching down the runway. As he always manages to do, Jacobs injected a slight hint of grunge with layered flannel shirts and slinky cardigans. While the collection was missing its normal spark of color and pattern, the sophisticated turn it took was much appreciated.
