NEW YORK, Feb 16, 2011/FR/- The seventies were in full force at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show on Tuesday, where its typical young vibe was fully present, yet at moments drifted into playful adult options in the form of high waisted tweed workwear pants, A-line just-below-the-knee skirts, and tucked in silk blouses.
Long hemlines were a consistent theme in silk leopard prints and strong warm-colored zig zag patterns in velvet.
Gold, browns, copper, and green formed the concrete color palette to be joined by the occasional purple or rich navy.
Collars were high and frequently bowed, and long outwear was joined by fox fur details, belted trenches, or cape-like silhouettes blocked with wide stripes.
Full patterned pantsuits were quite lustful as was the full-length raccoon coat and the gold leather cardigan, and high oxford lace ups and shearling wedge booties made for some to-die-for footing as they were perfectly paired with thin calf-high contrast socks.
This collection was fluid and flirty, fresh yet sophisticated, and that is why Anna Dello Russo and Emmanuelle Alt left with a smile.
