NYFW: Did Marc Jacobs take his inspiration from the Apocalypse or British summer time?

September fashion week(s) are really exciting. We get to see summer’s looks now. But after waiting in the rain for a show, bundled up in a new coat, it can be hard to get totally enthusiastic about pastel confections on the catwalk (at least until March when optimists think Spring begins).

So along comes Marc Jacobs to wind up NYFW with a collection that we just want to wear right away. How refreshing!

If you live in London like we do, summer is a loose term and there is absolutely NO guarantee that you will be able to wear a pink dress without tights or a tropical print without looking like you’re off to a fancy dress party. So summer coats and muted prints? YES PLEASE.

The collection had an apocalyptic beachy vibe…it’s as if Marc Jacobs has experienced a British beach holiday!

We LOVED the matador jackets, chic fringing and pom pom trim (always) as well as the city shorts and awesome dark Hawaiian prints in sophisticated shapes.

Somehow there was a Victorian vibe too, which while not my personal favourite fashion influence, somehow slotted into the collection despite all the hotch-potch of styles. This is definitely a look to channel come the inevitably drizzly, windy summertime…or in fact now. Plus, our Cara crush continues. Here are our five favourite looks. You can keep the haircut though Mr Jacobs!

I love this look and the flowing silk trousers. But the haircut? Not so much.

This might be my fav. The print is sublime and there are so many practical flat shoes too. WIN!
