Marc Jacobs Goes Mod

In a stark contrast from his fall line, Marc Jacobs has left the oversized silhouettes and extravagant layers behind in favor of simple Op Art-inspired pieces – heavy on the stripes.

The Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 collection, available now for pre-order, has opted for a mostly neutral palette, focused on black, white, and tan, with surprising pop of red. Long-sleeve geometric gowns with high necklines pair perfectly with a mod cat-eye and a sleek ponytail, while pleated knee-length skirts bring Mad Men-inspired style into your wardrobe. The versatile collection leaves plenty to the imagination, because “there’s nothing sexier than a girl covered up,” Jacobs told Cathy Horyn in September.

What’s most notable about the collection is its ability to evoke fashion’s bold transition in the Sixties without looking like period pieces – everything is so beautifully current.
