Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2014–Marking their first season as designers for Marc by Marc Jacobs, British duo Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley delivered a forward thinking approach to the line’s fall-winter 2014 outing. Previously the Marc line has been slightly seventies inspired with pajama dressing and loose silhouettes. Hillier and Bartley offered a change of pace with a street wear inspired take on outerwear. The silhouette of choice was a tailored, military inspired jacket paired with baggy pants. On her feet, the Marc girl wore a mix of sneakers and boots. Bold colors exploded on the runway with motocross influenced looks featuring words such as “Revolution” or “Twisted” proudly displayed on models’ chests. Elsewhere, the fall collection showcased the Japanese Lolita style with Victorian-esque skirts and oversized bows.
Marc’s Spring – For its spring 2014 campaign, Marc by Marc Jacobs gets some new blood with models Maria Palm, Nicole Pollard and Miriam Haney. The girls pose for longtime Jacobs collaborator German photographer Juergen Teller in candid portraits.

Marc Does the Classics – While a lot of designers during New York Fashion Week are focusing on the minimal trend, Marc by Marc Jacobs offers a new take on the classics for the brand’s spring 2014 collection. The classic suit is given a slouchy shape in satin for a pajama-inspired look while white t-shirts worn underneath are kept simple and uncomplicated. Jacobs also got sporty with baseball jackets and a golf-inspired look of trousers and mens tees with color-blocking in satin. Rounding out the collection’s relaxed shapes are the final looks featuring satin dresses or jumpsuits adorned with sparkling star shapes.
MJ Life – Marc by Marc Jacobs’ fall 2013 campaign once again enlists German photographer Juergen Teller for the new season.

Charm School by Marc – The fall 2012 collection of Marc Jacobs’ wearable offshoot line–Marc by Marc Jacobs–featured a parade of school girl inspired ensembles complete with pleated skirts, modest sweaters and no-fuss dresses. The color palette was grounded in traditional colors of black, red, navy and sapphire. Prints ranged from tartan to stripes to floral. For outerwear, Jacobs also played with bulky shapes reminiscent of his mainline show but with a less severe outcome.
Relaxed Marc – Marc by Marc Jacobs’ spring 2012 collection follows the trend of pop prep that we have seen multiple times this season for New York Fashion.
