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.
Big hair, big prints, and big '70s style were the name of the game at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show Monday night. In a packed-to-the-rafters room at Lincoln Center — where Jacobs was showing for the first time ever, thanks to a recent scheduling switcheroo — Cara Delevingne, Lindsey Wixson, and their band of wild-maned cohorts marched to the thumping beat of Tame Impala's "Elephant." It was a high-energy, leg-tapping scene, one that was made all the more fun thanks to the vivid Brady Bunch prints and gleaming gem-tone silks that the designer sent down his runway. Slim-cut crew-neck t-shirt blouses paired with wide-legged cropped pants or high-waisted secretary skirts gave a laid-back working-girl vibe, while oversize A-line midi-coats layered cheekily over supershiny minidresses lent a Taxi Driver-era Jodie Foster feel.
Apparently even big designers have trouble getting their stuff through customs. Thanks to delivery delays, Marc Jacobs has had to reschedule its show from Monday, Feb. 11 to Thursday, Feb. 14 at 8 p.m. "We're missing bags, shoes, and two fabrics," brand President Robert Duffy told WWD.
And it's not just the mainline show that's been affected; the Marc by Marc Jacobs showtime has been changed as well. That show will now take place at the Lincoln Center tents on Monday at 8 p.m. — the Collection's original spot on the schedule — because the set for the Marc Jacobs show is already being built at the Lexington Armory.
"Marc and I are extremely sorry for this inconvenience. We just want to have the best show possible and show all the product that our design team has been working on so hard for the last six months. We completely understand if people have to get on a plane to go to London," Duffy explained. "We're not expecting people to change those plans or other plans just for us. We are live-streaming the show. Still, we recognize the significant inconvenience and are very sorry about the situation."
Later the brand tweeted, "Sorry everyone, we just want to make it right," before tweeting a formal apology note.
Alexa Chung was spotted on the streets of NYC looking prim and proper in a brown and blue ensemble that screamed Fall chic. She tucked a blue silk button-down blouse into a brown suede miniskirt, then finished off with black opaque tights, Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse flats, exaggerated tortoiseshell cat-eye sunglasses, and a floral bag. When the weather cools, re-create Alexa's look by pairing a blue blouse with a brown skirt or a blue sweater with brown pants. You can also sport a brown top with blue bottoms to switch things up.
At Marc by Marc Jacobs, models epitomized carefree, chic, Summer-in-the-city style. Hair was swept off the face with a bright headscarf, and the eyes were coated with a glossy mix of sandy beige and black for a cool contrast. See it come together backstage in today's Beauty Beat.
We always expect a quirky cool collection from Marc by Marc Jacobs, and for Spring '13, the Marc girl was all wrapped up (and layered) in cute colors and prints. Evoking a well-traveled glow, models marched down the runway in an array of bright head wraps, multicolored quilted cotton dresses, and baggy striped pants. The results? An effortlessly cool — and slightly rebellious — lineup that's sure to please the designer's avid fans. Get a closer look at the whole collection right here!
Marc Jacobs's Spring 2013 mainline collection may have been all about restrained sensuality, but his secondary line was clearly all about fun. As in the thing that girls just wanna have. It came spelled with a capitol F, and it touched everything from the pastel striped runway to the 1982 electropop playing on the speakers to the Cyndi Lauper scarfs wrapped atop the models' heads.
As for the clothes, well, they were pretty jazzy too. Lots of wacky geometric prints, riotous hues, and plenty of washed-out denim and stripes. On boxy tops, shoulder-padded blazers, flouncy skirts, and peg-leg pants — which came tight-rolled at the ankle, remember that? — it made for a pretty energetic offering. Pile it on, and turn it up, the designer seemed to be saying. And really, why not? There's nothing much more fun than that.
Let's talk positive: the Marc by Marc Jacobs show was about as upbeat as you get, with models in bright layers right up to their patterned turbans bouncing down the runway to the tune of "Can't You Feel It" by Time. If you love color and pattern, MMJ Spring 2013 will be at the top of your Spring shopping list. Check out all the pictures from the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 collection, and come back soon for our full review.
