Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Tracy Reese, Monique Lhuillier
New York Fashion Week … heading into the stretch. More reviews from the Associated Press.
Jacobs clearly has turned a new leaf from his more recent party-girl ‘80s-influenced collections. Monday’s dresses were mostly an A-line, adding a little volume, although one stunner was a body-hugging sweater covered on the front with shiny beading.
Jacobs also confirmed a longer-length hemline that had been seen as one of the season’s likely trends.
“These were gorgeous, real clothes that were beautifully done,” said Joe Zee, creative director for Elle magazine. “Don’t you walk away feeling elated? Isn’t that the whole point of fashion?”
These lovely ladies wore tweed, suede or boucle coats on a proper date — or perhaps a transparent trench with a hint of sparkle for a special occasion. For day, there were several suits, including a three-piece menswear plaid one and a gray-flannel culotte version — yes, culottes.
When you’ve got the chic eye of Donna Karan, you don’t need a lot of glitz to celebrate fashion. In fact, the collection to mark the 25th anniversary of her label was almost entirely black, spare and highly sculptured.
