Marc By Marc Jacobs: SS2013
A joyful and fun spirit invaded Marc By Marc Jacobs, with an upbeat collection full of layers and layers of relaxed, fresh and laid-back clothes overflowing optimistic mix-n-match prints... checks - big and small -, flowers, arabic, stripes, you name it, it was there!
It somehow had a retro-parisian vibe, it felt like the it-New-York cool kids went to a last minute trip to the country-side or the beach and packed whatever they found and just wore it, mixed with grandma’s clothes that was already there, improvised yet cool, effortless cool. They are just too cool to care about anything.
The collection was full of utilitarian clothes, with all the basics and good commercial items to sell with an edge that is stylishly interesting and cool, with oversize shirts and foulards beautifully cinching the waist. I am not a big fan of big names and logos on clothes and bags, yet those ‘Marc Jacobs’ printed sweater and hat were so alluring. Beautiful pieces and silhouettes in such richness of colors and prints... It was not very ground breaking but it is Marc By Marc Jacobs... What a fun collection!
