Interior Swatch Book at Marc Jacobs

Interior Swatch Book at Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs, RST12, New York.

You would be forgiven for thinking that the fabrics above look like something out of an interiors showroom swatch book or a home wares magazine but in fact they are the latest wallpaper inspired prints and floral textures for the Marc Jacobs Resort collection 2012.

The stylised organic prints have been presented in a series of casual semi-retro shapes, with touches of evening wear provided through fabric embellishments such as sequins, embroidery and what appears to be a lasercut design in pearlescent pink and white. The colour palette is generally quite muted and mushy with khaki, beige and a safe mid blue, lightened by pastel highlights and a simple horizontal stripe. When abstracted away from the clothes they really do look like colours fit for a home renovation, but something about the looks on the models faces gives it a strange creepy edge, in a good way.
