1940s

Sensible-length skirts, wide, mannish trousers, and waisted dresses.

With S/S 11’s hit collection of 1970s disco diva looks, now in almost every high street shop, Marc Jacobs felt the time was right to bring a more structured silhouette into play and looked to the rigorously styled 1940s for inspiration (as did the Olsen twins’ luxury label The Row). The look was more low-key at his diffusion line Marc by Marc Jacobs, with 1970s-meets-1940s looks bound to influence the younger market. Think sensible-length skirts, wide, mannish trousers, and waisted dresses.
