Never one to follow a crowd and a cut above your average designer, Marc Jacobs is one of fashion’s foremost tastemakers.
Marc Jacobs' FW16 collection goes in a delicate, feminine direction, very different to that of last season. Sheer fabrics, dainty prints and adorable pussy-bow ties amount to a perfectly pretty collection. Of course, there is a subtle edge of frayed finishes and a lot of black, but what would a Marc Jacobs collection be without a subtle underscore of grunge? There's a taste of each of the designer's signatures here – something for everyone!
After a controversial, now iconic grunge-inspired collection for Perry Ellis in 1992, Marc Jacobs set sail at the helm of his own ship, with stellar show after stellar show from 1994 onwards. The rest, as they say, is history: a lauded eponymous label, the equally popular diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and 16 hugely successful years as creative director of Louis Vuitton’s women’s ready-to-wear. Marc Jacobs is, has been and will surely continue to be a highlight of New York Fashion Week season on season.
