New York: At Marc Jacobs, one can always expect a 180-degree turn from season to season, and the designer’s current offering was no exception. Spring’s draped 1970s silhouettes were shrugged off in favor of precise hourglass shapes with hints at Edwardian and 1940s styles. Dramatic princess seams also recalled Jacobs’ beloved F/W 10 collection for Louis Vuitton. The designer’s offbeat side emerged with polka dot motifs, which appeared on nearly every ensemble in the form of prints, jacquards, cabochons and mirrored discs. The first series of looks featured dots made from latex, in collaboration with House of Harlot; the overlapping layers and slick surfaces suggested fish scales. Perhaps the only carryover from spring was Lurex, now used for boxy tees and luxe hoodies, proving once again that Mr. Jacobs is the master of mixing of high and low.
