Here’s a quote from WWD: “Marc Jacobs is still obsessed with the French coquette at Louis Vuitton, and for cruise, she’s headed on safari or frolicking in Saint-Tropez. The lineup is young and graphic, from a sassy lemon bustier dress as brief as a beach towel to a washed leather jacket with military airs, styled with wide pants and sequin peep-toe booties. Silhouettes are short, topped with cocooning jackets or sporty hooded parkas, while combinations of polkadots, marine stripes and camouflage prints spice up dresses and swimsuits. Rope-trimmed lacquer bangles and glinting sequins worked into broderie anglaise jackets add shine to this fun and flirty collection.
In the men’s collection (see images), designer Paul Helbers touched on a theme that he plans to fully develop on the spring runway later this month: New York City bike messengers. He mashed up the functionality of athleticwear with graphic elements of streetwear and, as always, ultrafine suits and furnishings. Fabric patterns were influenced by the American flag and bike helmets.”
