The main takeaways from Marc Jacobs’ show featuring Kendall Jenner

Marc Jacobs is on Cloud Nine — or so the Stefan Beckman-designed set would have you believe.

Why the dramatics? It’s the designer’s first show since stepping down from Louis Vuitton in September, and, well, Jacobs has always upped the ante when it comes to set design. Just think back to those elevators in his Vuitton Autumn 2011 collection.

Then there are the celebs that a Jacobs show attracts: Miley Cyrus cosying up to Cara Delevingne, Sofia Coppola, Rachel Zoe and Alexa Chung. Of course, all of the names pale in comparison to the flash of Kendall Jenner’s breasts in a sheer top – that got the Twittersphere gossiping like a room of teenage girls.

But of course, we weren’t watching online just for the celebs, clouds and cleavage. No, we wanted to find out what the new Jacobs era had in store for us clothes-wise.

Minimalism

Neutral scoop necks in tank and tunic styles had a Scandinavian-esque sci-fi modernity. Even the hair, laser-cut in appearance and held clear of models’ faces with a bandage-style headband, emphasized the no fuss, no frills approach.

Shearling

This couldn’t be more timely: New York is in the midst of a blizzard. Jacobs’ shearlings arrived like voluminous fleeces in degradé hues. Editors must have been wishing that they could shop (read: rob) the runway. Most importantly, Jacobs’ interpretations makes the trend official. Zara will be flooded with these next season.

Sequins and beading

The Sixties theme continued in densely packed beaded tunics and flares contrasting against degradé, diaphanous sequin tank tops and tunics. There were also dresses and tops with delicate flyaway layers of organza ruffles. Both looks will guarantee that the trend for extra trimmings that has endured for the past two years won’t be going away anytime soon.
