So everyone has been raving about the new Marc Jacobs show- and fashion.psfk is no different. Moving on from the girlie looks of the last season, the designer is expertly championing a return to elegance. The influence of the current resurgence in etiquette, deportment and all things aristocratic could be seen in the beautifully refined, ladylike outfits that showcased a wealth of luxurous fabrications, and came complete with wide-brimmed hats and delicate gloves.
The colour palette of softened navy, black and greys with accents of rich wine, maroon and mustard was shown across simple clothing shapes in longer lengths and finely tailored outfits. trousers are straight and clean (slim but not skinny), necklines were high, skirts were below the knee, and skin was nowhere to be seen. Even the eveningwear in high sheen satins, rich velvets and sequinned fabrics was sensible and subdued- yet still eminently wearable.
