Marc by Marc Jacobs: Game On!
Suzy Menkes at New York Fashion Week: Day Six
19 Февраля 2015
Aggressive, anarchic, rude and crude — but fun!
Rambunctious British duo Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley have made Marc by Marc Jacobs far more than just a second line to the designer’s big brand — which he still handles himself.
In fact, the two are smart, using simple fabrics like denim for long, slightly hippie-ish dresses, or cute short skirts — and then adding messages like ‘”Solidarity”, the final “Y” offering up a two-finger salute.
As a way of pepping up the brand meant for a younger crowd, the system is working. The romp across a vast green turf was fun, but Team Marc may not be able to play the same game each season.
