At the designer’s original flagship store on Mercer Street in New York, the Marc Jacobs Resort 16 collection is revealed.
An extension of the ideas and techniques seen in the luxurious Marc Jacobs AW15 showcase, the new Resort 16 collection takes on a bold colour palette of red, black and white, with some killer eyebrows and head scarves in the mix. Aiming to contrast in front of a fresh, sunny yellow backdrop put together by set designer Stefan Beckman, the collection is an amalgamation of classic Jacobs styles including the broderie anglaise and trompe l’oeil staples.
In true Jacob-ian style, flurries of light fabrics adorned in embellishments catch the eye, while more substantial pieces like the double-faced crepe wool jackets and long silk jersey skirts add weight to the collection. From the practicality of the geometric sweatshirts, to the indulgent flamboyancy of the off-the-shoulder crepe column gowns and the sheer embroidered dresses ornamented with dyed goose feather collars – the series promises flexible elegance with pops of red in all of the signature Marc Jacobs shapes.
