The weather has long been a conversation piece for the British, and here Marc Jacobs used it for his ethereal collection. The show was one of the most memorable of the season; the audience sat under a fabricated sky of low puffy clouds that dappled the catwalk as a recording by actress Jessica Lange chanted, “Happy days are here again; let’s sing a song of cheer again.” Gossamer dresses, tops and skirts featured a wave print painted with the lightest of watercolour. The waves were cleverly brought to 3D life, reworked as ruffles on collars and cuffs, then across jumpsuits and finally climaxing as a collection of sublime dresses floating down the catwalk. This vision brought the clothes and the decorated venue together in dreamy harmony. The forecast? This collection should be a big hit.
