Marc by Marc Jacobs nods to 1960s for a prim fall

As has been the trend at fashion week so far, hems fell and necklines rose at Marc by Marc. Lean turtlenecks and printed sweaters were neatly tucked into high-waist belted A-line and pencil skirts that hit below the knee. Out of 50 total looks, just two dresses were minilength, including a short-sleeve one in blue wool satin that could easily double as a tunic.

The men evoked college dressing in turtlenecks, fleece hooded sweatshirts, patterned sweaters and plaid blazers.

For outerwear, shapes stayed simple as long overcoats or short and long trapeze styles in prints matching dresses and skirts. Two long shearling coats in shiny fur, one in a natural brown and the other dyed blue, were trim and prim — much like the rest of the surprisingly mature collection.
