Marc Jacobs eschewed seasonal confines with this heavy collection, presenting a darkly staged and ground-breakingly irreverent mash up of Victorian military influences, aloha florals and youthful skate meets surf touchstones. - [StyleSight]

Jacobs' clothes, in contrast to the prevailing Spring currents, were printed, appliquéd, embroidered, and tasseled. And dark. There were large hibiscus prints in red and white on a coat and maroon and white on a shirt and shorts set, but black, navy, bottle green, and brown were the dominant colors here. Even a bellwether like Jacobs might have a hard time getting twenty-first-century gals into the passementerie-laden sailor's jackets that he started with. Blame the out-to-there shoulders, not the cute hip-slung shorts that accompanied them. But his printed and embroidered dresses were another story entirely. Cut like exalted sports jerseys and worn like they were no big deal with wrestler's boots, they had an unprecious cool—exactly the kind of thing an It girl like Sky Ferreira, who made a surprise cameo on the runway, might wear for a stroll through the Lower East Side. Widow's weeds dresses marched by on flats, too. It was hard not to love this show's attitude. Georgia May Jagger sported a sweatshirt embroidered in red and white with the wave on a Coke can. - []
