Bright colors and silver sparkle at Marc Jacobs New York show

Fashion & Leather Goods


New York Fashion Week, the first stop on the Spring-Summer 2017 calendar ahead of London, Milan and Paris, ended in upbeat extravagance with the colorful Marc Jacobs show.

A silver leather motor jacket, a hot pink suede trench, a rainbow washed sequin dress… Leaving behind the gothic inspirations of the Fall-Winter 2016 show, Marc Jacobs’ creations for his Spring-Summer 2017 show outdid one another with flashy colors and flamboyant sheen.

The designer’s imagination sprang to life in a feminine streetwear wardrobe including jeans, hooded sweatshirts and military jackets. Denim was king, with a satiny effect, and graphic illustrations by Julie Verhoeven covered pieces in python, suede and cashmere. Patchwork motifs were joined by camouflage prints, exquisite embroidery and metallic zebra prints.

Models with pastel tone wool dreadlocks rose to new heights on exaggerated platforms, emphasizing thigh-revealing mini dresses, a long way from the staid cuts seen previously on the runway this season.
