The Marc Jacobs fall/winter 2014-2015 collection solemnly closed New York Fashion Week fall 2014 on Thursday night, bringing enchanting minimalistic vibes and perfect tailoring that once again state the exempt and chic style of the designer. Fall dressing is utterly sophisticated and dramatic according to Marc Jacobs, and as he tried to explain it: “There’s always a reaction to the thing before, the idea of wanting to see things that seem fresh and unadorned. I wanted to keep it very light, very soft, very fresh, and a very neutral palette with just slight hints of color, cosmetics colors.”
Unlike his dark spring collection, fall is pictured in milder and softer hues by Jacobs, bringing mainly shades of cream, lilac, tan, beige and light blue. As a result, the Marc Jacobs fall/winter 2014-2015 collection radiated pure fragility and tenderness and this was brought to life not only through the choice of the color palette, but also the perfectly tailored shapes with simplistic vibes and the models’ nude makeup looks, accompanied by blunt bob wigs embellished with headbands. “We looked at women like Meryl Streep and Jessica Lange,” Jacobs tried to explain the inspiration behind these stunning creations. “Women we admire and respect and who have a sort of strength without any aggressivity, and without it being a discussion about youth.”
The high side slits of the dresses the models wore brought kind of boldness to the Marc Jacobs fall/winter 2014-2015 collection, which was immediately broken by modesty thanks to the skinny pants worn underneath. Sixties were the vivid theme of these pieces. Then, there came spectacular knitted pieces, like the knit tunics worn over pants of the same style, long scarves and handwear sometimes.
Slowly the collection got dressier, bringing some printed tunics, dresses and pant and top overalls, some featuring glittery sequins. Transparency is also present in the Marc Jacobs fall/winter 2014-2015 collection, as we see the see-through tops matched with the tailored pants. Last but not least, the line gets flooded with utterly breathtaking lyrical dresses featuring lots of frills, ruffles and organza.
In terms of the accessories spotted, the Marc Jacobs fall/winter 2014-2015 collection also brought over-the-knee boots and ankle ones, as well as sport shoes and classic handbags. Overall, it was a mature line embellished with a high dose of creativity and uniqueness that are so much demanded in fashion nowadays!
