Marc Jacobs turned to the early Seventies for his fall collection, referencing cool cats Jack Nicholson and Bryan Ferry and the era of the peacock male. Cue plush fabrics, particularly velvet, employed for biker and dinner jackets; as a trenchcoat collar; for the lining of an alpaca duffle coat, or for high-top sneakers in feather prints.

Hinged on elongated and languid suits, bathrobelike coats and buttery knits in intentionally pilled cashmere, the collection was suave and fun. As the American designer devotes his full attention to his signature brand, he should consider a runway outing for this spirited line.
