Pale Pink Disco Queens: Marc Jacobs Fall 2014

February 14, 2014

Marc Jacobs has been a busy man with a lot of talk surrounding him recently. He left Louis Vuitton after a stunning final collection last year to focus on his eponymous label and their upcoming IPO. Luella Bartley took up the designing reigns for his offshoot line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and it seems the reviews have been pretty good. 

And now on the final evening of New York Fashion Week, all eyes have turned to Jacobs and his first collection in a new era of his life.

Following his dark, gothic spring show, it is rather jarring to see Jacobs present a collection full of pastels and airy fabrics for fall. Lavender masses of cotton candy (or were they clouds?) were suspended over the viewers and models strutted out to similarly-colored maxi dresses and wide-leg pants. Each model had their stick-straight bobs pulled out of their face with a wide knit headband, giving them an active, ballerina-in-practice look.

Jacobs always likes to leave us guessing, and one would never suspect this collection from the often punk-inspired designer, but my is the result breathtaking. Make no mistake, these clothes are quite challenging to wear and I'm sure we are going to see a few celebrity missteps when they try to translate these looks to the red carpet, but the right girl in the right dress and you will have a knockout outfit.

Personally I loved the change of pace that this collection brought. The seventies continue to be the big trend and Marc Jacobs has interpreted the decade in a fresh new way, and pastels for fall is perfectly genius! Those ombre fur coats are going to be absolutely everywhere.

Fall 2014 for Jacobs was a breath of fresh air, a beginning of a new chapter, as light and promising as a dainty pink cloud at sunrise. And I can't wait to see where this new day leads Marc Jacobs.
