With nods to '70s silhouettes, Marc Jacobs lit up Lincoln Center tonight with his Fall '13 Marc by Marc Jacobs collection. True to form, you'll find new iterations of the designer's all-over prints — brilliant hues dotting dresses and checks taking over smart blazers. Altogether, he crafts a cool balance between a lineup of statement prints and more understated, menswear-inspired suiting, which means there's something for just about everyone in this playful set. Watch on for every look straight from the catwalk.
Rescheduling pains aside, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall '13 show went up (for the first time ever) at the Lincoln Center this evening without a hitch. Designer Marc Jacobs continued his retro style story — which started with Spring's rock 'n' roll stripes — with a new round of loud all-over prints, mini-miniskirts, midi-length trousers, and a general nod to '70s silhouettes. Click through to see the complete Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall '13 collection now.
Thom Browne has never been more visible than while riding into his Fall 2013 show, having dressed First Lady Michelle Obama in a tailored dress and jacket for the recent inauguration. But those expecting to see more wearable day options from the designer were in for a big surprise at today's dramatic presentation in NYC. Proportions were expanded into theatrical dimensions with wide, structured shoulder-framing jackets over full, embellished skirts. His menswear background was evident in the checks, tweeds, and plaids that popped up, while his rose-strewn tights were completely feminine. Has he introduced a whole new audience to the design sensibility he's known for? Definitely. Has he made a commercial collection for women to buy occasion dressing from? No, but that's exactly why he is so loved by fashion insiders.
With references to her recent travels in Japan, Reem Acra's Fall 2013 collection was a killer lineup of sharp, sophisticated dressing for the posh uptown woman, infused with deeply beautiful embroidery and topped with kimono-style coats. Perhaps what we're all most excited to see, though, as with every Acra collection, is the display of stunning gowns. This time those red-carpet-worthy dresses were finished with more subversive fishnet insets and layers (nods to a series of photographs from artist Daido Moriyama) until the line culminated in the most luxurious of tiered tulle confections that begged to be taken to the Oscars.
- Trends: Leather, fur, cutouts, draping, and embroidery.
- Colors: Gray and black juxtaposed with a fiery red; a sophisticated houndstooth print.
- Shoes: Striking white pumps and evening sandals.
- Beauty look: Slicked side parts and gorgeous red lips.
- Editors' pick: Since we regrettably won't have any place to wear her tiered finale gowns, we're looking to the chic kimono coats to tie our look together.
Day five of New York Fashion Week is a wrap, and we're back with our POPSUGAR Fashion recap on what we loved most on the runway. First, we saw so much understated glamour and bespoke tailoring at The Row that we could barely pick our jaws up off the floor. As if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's signature sophistication wasn't enough, we headed over to Theyskens' Theory, where the over-the-knee boots were just as sexy as the flippy leather skirts. For all that and more day-five details — including all the great layered knits and embellished denim at 3.1 Phillip Lim — just push "play" now.
Katy Perry clearly had green and Gucci on her brain last night at the Grammys. First, she played up her sex appeal in a mint-green gown with an oversize keyhole and jeweled neckline, then for the Sony Music Grammy reception, the singer switched to a turquoise beaded minidress with an embellished neckline, finished with neon yellow pumps and a blue crystal clutch, all by Gucci. There were some resemblances between Katy's dresses — after all, they were both from Gucci's Resort 2013 collection — but the floor-length gown was definitely the more envelope-pushing pick. So take a good look at Katy in double the green at the Grammys, then tell us, which do you love more?
