ON THE MARC
While European women have been stocking their wardrobes with Marc Cain (marc-cain.com) since the ’ 70s, Philadelphia fashion mavens are finally getting to know the German-born contemporary womenswear label from its new digs inside the King of Prussia Mall. And they like what they see, what with trim silhouettes and fashion-forward looks that feel wearable no matter the occasion. The fall-winter 2017 collection is no exception, boasting an easy-to-wear style that alludes to athleisure trends but with a luxe edge courtesy of velvet, tulle, chiffon, cashmere and faux fur. Stephen Belfer, Marc Cain USA managing director, says the label’s collections “cater to every woman with functionality and class.” We can’t think of a piece that represents those two elements more than Marc Cain’s take on stirrup pants, an ’80s wardrobe staple ready to make a millennial comeback.
