Marc Jacobs Resort 2017 Collection
Bringing the funk of the party atmosphere, Marc Jacobs’ Spring/Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear Collection strutted down the runway. Decked out in colourful dreadlocks and impossibly high platforms the models sported fur collars, decadently long coats, sequins and feathers. Similar to his 2002 collection, he collaborated with artist Julie Verhoeven. Her inspired illustrations were sported on bags and shoes. The standout for this collection, however, was a snakeskin coat with Verhoeven’s signature design embellished on the back. Starting with a base color palette of black and white, the muted color accents from the Fall collection were amped up, now with fluorescent pinks and blues. Prints have a key role, with bold animal prints patched together with geometric stripes and checks. Heavy embellishment and embroidery, two classic Marc Jacobs elements, are featured on acid washed denim jackets, leather coats and iconic sweatshirts featuring a sequin MTV logo. Paradise themed details, including rainbows,flamingos, stars and palm trees are seen in both pave charms and patches on military inspired coats.
