Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 RTW – New York Fashion Week

As strange and unexpected as it may seem, the spring 2013 fashion trends encourage so many layers and wraps that one gets the feeling of fall and recalls a collage girl instantly. “Cruel Summer” is the titles of the new Marc by Marc Jacbos spring/summer 2013 collection unveiled at New York Fashion Week, which entirely focuses on layering, mix and matching, as well as a well-defined Bananarama style. Oozing a relaxed attitude, youthfulness and fun, Jacobs’ secondary line rarely has any connection with his mainline collection, which was all graphic and straightforward.


This more youthful and vibrant line presented by Marc Jacobs seemed to be all about ready-to-travel clothes and accessories, an amazing definition of jet-setting bohemianism and urban relaxed allure. There were lots of oversized shirts demonstrated that were tucked into baggy pants, full-skirted peplum dresses and designs featuring checks, pajama stripes, gingham and paisley prints. The looks were styled with printed scarves that were worn as obi belts, head wraps and neckwear. Thick, woolen socks came matched with sandals, proving that layering was the technique used from head to toe at Jacobs.
Other layers used in the Marc by Marc Jacbos spring/summer 2013 collection were more straightforward: for instance, a crisp collar shirt was paired with a preppy pinafore, or a long-sleeved shirt was worn under a colored tank. Both in the layered manner or taken separately, the pieces presented were extremely lovely and utterly wearable. Although they did look a bit bizarre, they will definitely appeal to young-spirited fashionisers, who are looking for ways to stand out in the crowd.
