Marc Jacobs, AW14, New York.
After a spectacular final show at Louis Vuitton, the next collection by Marc Jacobs at Marc Jacobs was pared back and focused. The Autumn-Winter 2014 collection was filled with chalky pastels and smooth matt fabrics. There were also many curved elements, with gently arcing necklines and curved edges on panel lines, godets and underarm gussets.
The use of curves often seemed to mimic the edges of clouds, with scalloped details on hem lines and embroidered fabric. Gradients of colour were also used extensively throughout the collection, with soft waves of colour across dresses or down the sleeves of fur jackets. Sheer fabrics were also used to add to the layering effects of the gradients with many of the final garments featuring flounces of georgette sewn into curved panel lines.
