With vivid, colorful prints, a mélange of motifs and baby-doll silhouettes, the Marc Jacobs 2013 Resort collection is an invitation to uplifting optimism. The designer applies his genius with a delightful attention to details, like a bare back decorated with a red bow, puffed sleeves, chunky platform sandals, or airy bouffant skirts.
The combinations are totally radical, creating harmony in squares mixed with flowers. Slender long crepe dresses were scattered with carnation and other floral prints. In this festival of color, swing coats comes in eye-popping yellow, blue and red. Pink and turquoise join the fun on sequined dresses and in some of the prints, adding a soft impression. The collection speaks to the inner child, eager to roll up the semi-rigid A-line dresses and scamper in the sun in pleated shorts…a perfect ode to the summer.
