Marc Jacobs AW16

For a designer renowned for putting on a show (it was a trip to the movies for Spring/Summer 2016 and a carousel, escalators and a steam train all featured during his tenure at Louis Vuitton), Marc Jacobs’ Autumn/Winter 2016 collection was presented in a comparably stark setting – all-white and with just an eerie pinging sound for a backing track. An altogether haunting affair, models – joined by Lady Gaga – stomped out in monster platforms with spookily-painted faces parading Victoriana-meets-modern-goth-inspired separates in epic proportions.

In a sombre palette of black, charcoal and teal with accents of fuchsia, mustard, spearmint green and purple, midi skirts came in laser-cut leather paired with pussybow blouses while bouclé jackets were adorned with raven feathers and oversized coats topped layered knitwear and starched denim. A final procession of gowns saw skirts get fuller and fuller, with a checkerboard fur cape sweeping the floor of the final exit.

While less of the bells and whistles than we’re used to, it was a show that ended on a political note, with the designer taking his bow wearing a T-shirt created in support of democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
