The Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2014 Ready-to-Wear Collection was a pivotal moment for the designer. After almost a decade as creative director at Louis Vuitton, this collection was his ‘coming out’ -so to speak- and his re-invention.
The Stefan Beckman-designed set more than lived up to the high bar the house has established over the years. The Instagram captions practically wrote themselves were hundreds of pillowy Magritte clouds hung from the ceiling.
This romantic feeling echoed the aesthetic of the pastel hued collection, that featured reduced shapes in restrained fabrics: a scoop-neck tank dress in double-face wool paired with matching pants, a clingy mélange knit V-neck accompanied by ribbed leggings that pooled over the tops of comfy sneakers. A vibe of loungewear was tangible—a feeling that was heightened by the models’ fabric headbands and matching razor-cut bobs.
Jacobs added demonstrative pieces in more lavish materials, the pinnacle being hand-painted organza ruffles on strapless dresses and dense crystal beading on a swirl-print tunic and flares with a lean, 1960s look.
