Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

The spectacular Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2014 collection was the one to close the doors of New York Fashion Week on Thursday night and take the fashion-addicted audience to London now. And yes, the closure couldn’t have been more impressive and better! The models walked down the lush grassy catwalk, wearing edgy cropped bobs and outfits that had Goth imprinted all over! Apparently, the runway setting and the inspiration source of the Marc Jacobs collection had a lot to do with the designer’s thoughts over the new life orders: “I’m not allowed to smoke in the park. I’m not allowed to walk my dog in the grass,” he said during a preview.

Unlike the uniform aspect of the Marc by Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2014 collection, the new Marc Jacobs spring 2014 fashion line has a distinctive, strict theme for the spring to come: Victorian, dark, edgy and irresistible. This way the designer wants to break the main fashion stereotypes and to offer something different from the floral prints and pastel shades that we are used to seeing for the bright season. Definitely an easy way to stand out in the crowd!
The show at Marc Jacobs opened with a number of heavy, mystic looks, featuring oversized jackets with intricate embroidery, skate boarder shorts and sporty shoes, more appropriate for the rainy fall season. Slowly, there came out also printed dresses, officers’ jackets, sweatshirts in thick velour and opulent gothic mourning dresses with sheer cutouts and with loads of sequins shining in the dark. The looks were always complemented with wrestling boots, moccasins or sandals, as well as bags.

Overall, almost any item in the Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2014 collection stood out with couture-like craftsmanship, namely lots of appliqués, fringes, embroidery, sequins and tassels hanging down. Even the shoes had some impressive Victorian details imprinted on! There every single item was meant to give you dark nightmares, and the designer’s intention can be definitely considered accomplished!
Going against the mainstream spring trends, the Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2014 collection does look a bit too dark and too edgy for the bright blooming days, but as the designer explained backstage: “All that matters is, do you want it or don’t you? Does it pull at your heart like fashion is supposed to? Like I said from Pippin, what would life be like without all of this?” So, yeah, let the dark spring magic guide you through the bright summer days this year!
