NYFW Fall 2013: Marc Jacobs

(NEW YORK) Marc Jacobs
Only Marc could make the top editrices delay their London jaunts (or, if a hop across the pond wasn't on the sched, simply turn out for another NYFW commitment at 8 p.m. on Valentine' Day) to show his eponymous collection. It was worth the wait to witness the deeply sophisticated, luxe yet off-kilter latest that Jacobs had in store. Metallics, of the liquid-effect variety, and copious, very alive-looking pelts played heavily into the sartorial vision for Fall, often sans pants. A cozy mushroom-hued cableknit pullover and T-strap kicks with the briefest of hotpants: Why not? Speaking of the absence of clothing, look 21 was comprised (very) simply of charcoal hotpants and a gloved hand strategically draped across the chest. Gamine, piece-y pixies and well-kohled eyes lent a furthered aura of mystique. Other bits of trademark MJ quirk: a brief foray into jewel-colored monochromatic sequin getups, ditto for satin, for the final evening-ready spate of looks. The circular runway path, set on concrete, lent a sort of trancelike state, particularly in tandem with the massive, 30-foot light sculpture orb that was moonlike in appearance, bathing everyone in that golden, hazy type of light flattering photo opps are made of. Front row, Christina Ricci, Sofia Coppola, and Debbie Harry showed face; as did Miley Cyrus, albeit from a standing perch as she slipped in a few minutes into the show. Good call, since Marc's latest vision of quietly subversive opulence was definitely an unmissable moment of Fall '13,
