He was one of the last to present his collection Fall-Winter 2012/2013 in New York Fashion Week, but as always, his shows are among the most anticipated. And is that Marc Jacobs is also one of the designers in the firing line, is a celebrity, and his life is followed by the paparazzi like a more famous. What's more, this year pointed to rumors that he could take charge of the maison Dior, so the anticipation was high.
Maybe that's why often talk over their comings and goings of their collections. It is not our case, because as always we focus exclusively on the proposals of the New York designer, this time from Marc by Marc Jacobs, his younger line.
Like last season, in this we have seen that the marketability and functionality has been one of the premises of the collection. And do not forget that your second line is designed to sell, with a great hook for young people, and he already has its first line to get even creatively.
Yet we have seen very interesting things in this proposal, especially in outerwear. We considered a curly coat in pearl gray also presented in black, several coats classic cloth -trimmed velvet collar, or a bold coat with gold lamé.
One of my favorites is this coat gray tweed in gray grid pattern. Sober, formal and very combinable. A whole core of these long-lived in the wardrobe.
Inevitable always on their parade nod to the tailor. In the latter show has opted for the straight cuts with American silhouette two button, simplicity and functionality. An elegant dress in brown-toned frame, or a much more sober and basic, like the classic charcoal gray pinstriped wool.
The knitted garments cannot miss in their proposals, this time point occurs mainly scratched. Sweaters of cashmere with large horizontal stripes like this in charcoal gray and blue klein. Or essential V-neck sweaters.
The navy style (along military air) has been one of the key points is that the legendary sailor style can also be carried in winter. Looks like this, which combines discreet subtle pinstripe trousers with the typical striped shirt, plus a hoddie ocean color point, prove it.
The colors we have seen the thing much more moderate than in the past, a lot of gray scale, preponderance of earthy tones, and the inevitable black. Only a few accents in shades of red have a little sparkle to this neutral collection.
The accessories has also been most minimal , besides the distinct air of military berets, occasional baseball and as always an interesting collection of bags - I think this is one of its strongest points - we have seen very clean output, with refined styling, but could get bored. The shoes, not that it was nothing innovative, military boots Docs type for each and every one of the looks.
A collection that although, as I said at the beginning is the most commercial, the truth is that glory will without penalty if the files on Marc by Marc Jacobs. Otherwise, it is still very understandable, is that in these times so raw, more than ever, and is to sell.
