Marc by Marc Jacobs Resort 2014: Wearable Sparkle and Houndstooth With Bite
Some Resort collections are about the fantasy of escaping the cold of Winter, and some are about having cool stuff to wear in November. Marc by Marc Jacobs's Resort 2014 collection falls squarely and spectacularly into the latter category.
Take the many houndstooth pieces — coats, blazers, skirts, and printed tops — infused with an edge not normally seen on the stodgy menswear pattern. Or the many frocks that catch the light, like a cocktail dress festooned with sequins or a sliver metallic coat that references Jacobs's mainline Fall 2013 collection.
There were plenty of quieter stunners, though, like a jumpsuit made to look like a tuxedo, or a faux fur coat that looks more cozy and warm than glamorous.
