Marc Jacobs @ Fall 2013 Collection

 Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 Collection drawing inspiration from the 1940’s: classic tailoring, sharp shoulders, flared sleeves and wraps evoked a luxurious but an easy elegance. Shape and silhouette were key factors and comfort also came into play with pajama inspired separates and silk slip style dresses both for day and evening.
Beautiful furs of mink, fox and nutria added an overall softness and added to the Old Hollywood glamour of the collection. Lame and sequins added shine and an uncomplicated sophistication.
 Each season Marc Jacobs Collection is a study in contrasts, both from the season before and within the collection. Whether the collection is a mix of dark and light, elegant and casual or day and evening it is not just the pieces themselves but the expert styling that makes a combination you could neither have predicted nor easily forget.
 The handbags were very special shown in patchwork python, sequined fishnet and tweed, fur and polished calf with antiqued brass closures and chains carried in the casual clutch of the model’s hand or arm with chains dangling giving the feeling of ease. The girls walked slowly and deliberately in a circle in no apparent rush to be anywhere.
Marc himself is a study in contrast, his love of both the classic and the unexpected finding their way into every well designed piece. The Fall’13 bags show their contrast through both a study in structure and an appreciation of comfort and beauty.Inspired by Jacobs own archive, beautiful leather in exquisite colors is complimented by custom clasps, jewelry inspired chains and unexpected details. The bags are chic, sensible and ultra-luxurious, the perfect contrast and a recipe for a beloved classic.
 “It was about familiarity, simplicity of things, being honest, having purity and coming from a classical place. We wanted to show something out of this world but very glamorous, strong and based on simple things, nothing too crazy or extreme.We wanted a looser, more elegant feeling.” Said March Jacobs.
