MARC BY MARC JACOBS
Marc Jacobs knows his clientele and offered up some colorful and fun, flirty styles for his secondary line.
His show opened with a model wearing a sweet striped long dress that hit below the knee. A gray long dress with a gray top was paired with yellow wedges. There was a striped jumpsuit with beige wedges. A long red skirt was paired with a black, red and gray striped top.
A yellow long dress had a 1940s feel to it. Another striking look was a parachuter’s jumpsuit, paired with beige platforms. A pretty red and white striped long dress had bows on the shoulders. It was worn with a blue and white bag.
Elie Tahari was among the designers reclaiming the look of the ‘70s, using a super-stylish woman like Lauren Hutton as a muse, the designer explained as he presented his collection.
“As we were working on it (the collection), it just seemed the right time to revisit that period of fashion,” Tahari said.
But no one wants to see a rehash of tired looks, either, he added, so the modernity comes from altered proportions, and natural colors and textures. The result was a sort of cleaned-up memory of that era, without overdoing cliches.
Many of the Tahari outfits were done in sandy colors but flashes of gold and white suggested goddesslike looks. Put them together and you get a wardrobe for the Greek islands.
Tracy Reese likes her catwalk to be a happy place and she consistently turns out clothes that suit that mood.
For the spring collection that previewed Monday at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, she used words like “mellow” and “groovy” to describe the prevailing look. (The red flared pants make so much more sense now.)View Entire Story
