New York Fashion Week: Narciso Rodriguez, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Rodarte

Day seven of New York Fashion Week and collections by Rodarte, Narciso Rodriguez and Marc by Marc Jacobs provided prairie prints, geometrics and 1970s disco.


The Rodarte collection by designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy was inspired by the Great American Plains with straightforward yet ladylike styles. Items included a dotty chiffon dress worn with a wool coat drawn in at the waist and silk draped gowns featuring a sky and wheatfield scene in various colours. Textures were layered with different fabrics including lace, wools, floral prints and mohair knits. Colours were mostly muted with pops of red and blue.

Narciso Rodriguez

Narciso Rodriguez’s autumn 11 collection presented a selection of clean cuts and geometric lines. Garments from coats to dresses displayed simple block patterns with items including a grey checked dress and white trousers with long black stripes down the side. Colourings were also kept fairly regimented and pieces were predominantly black, silver or grey with occasional splashes of lilac and red. Contrasting with the clean lines see from much of the collection Rodriguez exhibited several flowing silk dresses.

Marc by Marc Jacobs

A retro 1970s vibe prevailed on the Marc by Marc Jacobs catwalk with printed dresses and shiny metallic leathers giving a disco feel to the collection. Knitwear, dresses and coats were seen in colours including burnt orange, brown, forest green and gold. Wide-legged herringbone trousers and trenches also gave a hint of mannish tailoring.
