A touch of layering infused with a hefty dose of Bananarama style, circa “Cruel Summer,” the Marc by Marc Jacobs women’s collection charmed with a relaxed attitude. Oversize shirts were tucked into rolled-up baggy pants, a full-skirted peplum dress was worked in faded floral denim and striking patchwork designs combined checks, gingham and paisley for a youthful zest. The show’s cool styling (scarves for belts and hair accessories) offered countless ways a girl can put her irreverent wardrobe together.
For his men, Jacobs played up cargo pants, his version with jumbo pockets that added a fun touch. His soft tailoring — a key men’s trend this season — was rendered with a slouchy touch. Jacobs also layered in stripes and musical note prints, which added a sweet tune to the overall feel.
