New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs

After having to postpone his mainline show until the last slot of the week due to sample delivery issues, Marc Jacobs’ autumn unveiling was hardly an event without a big build up.

But good things come to those who wait, as Jacobs conjured up a decadent yet comfortable collection. Basking in the warm glow of the giant lit-up orb that hung over the catwalk, models shimmered and shimmied along, clothed in precise metallic dresses, cosy but prim collared coats of varying lengths, high-waisted briefs and a selection of sequined numbers that had a glamorous ease. In fact it was all rather easy and eminently wearable as neat tailoring, cool cable knits and pyjama-style pieces (Jacobs himself emerged wearing jim-jams of his own) all rubbed shoulders, the soft light of the orb giving a luxurious tone to the show while at the same time allowing the sequins to really sparkle.

In short A real winner of a show that managed to feel at once special yet so easy and familiar. Orb or no orb, it was the week’s shining light.
