Marc Jacobs’ spring 2019 runway show started an hour-and-a-half late, presenting a collection that is a very light, sheer, pretty version of Fall. It can also be described as voluminous, in trapeze shapes, massive ruffles, pleated pants, bold shoulders, huge sleeves, enormous waist flowers. There was chiffon and sequins and lamé, gloves and bags and sparkly tights and Grace Kelly scarves. There were sling-back shoes with exaggerated pointed toes. There were little veiled Ascot hats.
“There are references to designers that have always inspired me and our past collections that have inspired me. Things that I continually go back to,” Marc Jacobs.
“I really don’t care if it’s new or old or modern or casual or dressy or whatever,” Jacobs said during a preview. “I think there are plenty of people dressing women to go to Starbucks. It’s not of interest to me. If you’re going to get dressed up, get dressed up. If you’re going to not get dressed, wear your sweats to go to Starbucks,” he said to Women’s Wear Daily.
