Marc Jacobs rocked to a 1960s beat from his first look: a simple T-shirt over sexy short shorts and T-bar ballet flats.
This set the tone for an ode to Warhol muse and 1960s It girl Edie Sedgwick, but looked modern enough to avoid tired nostalgia.
It moved from her early society socialite days, in prim tailoring, long-length skirts and peplumed trims. As she morphed into a downtown star, sassy leopard spots and midriffs were revealed, and as she partied away the years, evening dresses skimmed the floor in zany op-art patterns. Spring is about stripes at Jacobs – parallel, curving, zig-zag or sequined. Simple but effective.
In short A stripy take on Edie Sedgwick, bringing a fresh take to a well-known look, done with Jacobs’ deft hand.
