OF ALL THE WAYS to de­scribe Marc Ja­cobs’ spring/sum­mer 2019 show, “a cel­e­bra­tion of pure fash­ion” might be the most fit­ting. The de­signer de­liv­ered 54 un­for­get­table looks, each froth­ier than the last. Fab­ric flow­ers as large as the mod­els’ heads adorned neck­lines, shoul­ders and waists. Tier upon tier of ruf­fles made the dresses ap­pear as ef­fer­ves­cent as a soap bub­ble. Even the suits were fu­elled by a sense of lev­ity, thanks to their chicly over­sized pro­por­tions. Ja­cobs’ po­si­tion in the fash­ion es­tab­lish­ment is well earned, not least for his abil­ity to twist cloth­ing into more ex­u­ber­ant, ex­ag­ger­ated ver­sions of the kinds of pieces we wear ev­ery day. In a sea­son that’s all about es­cap­ing re­al­ity in favour of dreamy al­ter­na­tives, his clothes fit the bill.
