NEW YORK — The spring collection Marc Jacobs showed on Monday night was festive and charming. The front row was full of stars, including J.Lo and the Olsen twins, and the collection was replete with dazzling looks that had a youthful currency. There were preppy looks such as dotted bow-neck sweaters, a micro-daisy printed tent dress and the key skirt, which was full and swishing. Here, Jacobs’ latest version of a tweed coat, with an overscaled pattern made of colorful organza strips and worn with a fluid skirt and top. For more on the season, see the reviews.
