Fashion Week Shows & Backstage

While his mainline explored new frontiers of glamour Marc Jacobs kept things light and sweet for his Marc by Marc Jacobs line. The silhouette was layered but the soft shades of cream and khaki cotton kept the overall vibe airy. Paisley was a recurring motif - it showed up in everything from jackets to blouses and crossed lines into the ensembles for both genders. Seersucker and patchwork patterns also played a considerable role in the youthful presentation. Overall the vibe was cute without becoming twee - the effortless shapes and punchy colors created a near perfect spring wardrobe for the young and the young at heart.

The model selection was just as fresh and jovial as the collection itself. Fashion week it-girl Karlie Kloss did her signature walk down the runway while newcomers Lovisa Ingman and Darya Kurovska brought an infectiously girly charm to Jacobs' runway. On the boys side closing face Lasse looked every bit the Danish schoolboy in his final outfit.
