MAR­C­JA­COBS

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

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.
