Three S words to describe Marc Jacobs' Fall collection: severe, serious and straight. It appears Marc has shed his layers from the past couple of collections, as well as some pounds off himself. Coincidence?
Sophisticated sportswear, with a European flare, was the message here - as well as a whisper of incognito with models peeking under multi-colored wide and short brimmed hats. Severe suiting started the show; vests and blazers with razor sharp finishes accompanied wide legged pants. Muted black, grey and champagne led to turquoise, crimson and an awesome canary yellow. Duchesse satin and velvet arrived for the evening portion; good 'ol Marc stiff draping and sashing adorned column dresses. Tuxedo dressing was obvious; post-it note pleats added femininity. As shades of grey and red graphic print made a cameo appearance.
It was hard for me to choose my favorite look; here is this stunning strapless turquoise velvet gown with a disshelved satin bow corsage. For the rest of my New York Fashion Week Fall 2007 coverage click here.
