NYFW Spring 2013: Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera

(NEW YORK) Marc Jacobs
A masterful moment of chic, from one of New York's most original fashion minds. Jacobs' homage to the sixties—and in particular, Edie Sedgwick—was done in a vortex of high-fashion moments, centered on stripes. Unabashedly graphic, he eschewed the romanticism that guides his inspiration approximately half the time and went for a more darker, severe take on his medium. Black and white was the predominant motif, while burgundy and beige weighed in occasionally to lend an especially retro vibe. Killer suiting mixed and mingled with femme sixties shapes and body-con tunics, but it was the final story of graphic striped gowns, all dolled up in sequins, that we will be ordering immédiatement.
Always polished and eternally elegant, Mrs. Herrera's take on Spring is strong on the suiting and easy on the evening. "Easy" is meant literally—an overall relaxed feeling dominated the collection, especially in the languid gowns, which had a particularly youthful vibe. A killer, waist-centric coat in a wear-everywhere shade of stone with contrast piping, as seen on Lindsey Wixson, launched the concept for daywear. The mid-length is the new mini (and, for that matter, maxi), and pieced-together, work-friendly dresses provide wardrobe solutions for women of all ages. Transparent blouses with an abstract painterly print provided another focal point. Buy now, wear forever.
