Jacobs goes marching on

The new Marc Marc Jacobs  saw the military trend galloping from strength to strength in  a collection that could have been sourced from an east Berlin thrift shop – all eastern army surplus in a distillation of the vintage spirit that has driven the range since its inception. Khaki melton oversized coating,  red square fur hats  and little drummer boy jacketing  sat with menswear-inspired tailoring for daywear which translated to pretty drop-waist lace and structured metallic brocade dresses for night. Relaxed styling and a spirit of thrift bonhomie imbues this collection with a likeability and accessibility which seems to grow by the season.
