Marc Jacobs Fall 2014: Ethereal lightness

The voice of actress Jessica Lange served as the stirring soundtrack for the Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 runway show in New York.  As her haunting recitation of the song lyrics for “Happy Days Are Here Again” referred to the accompanying decor – a bevy of cumulus clouds hovering above the snaking path of a massive runway – models floated by spectators in a parade of elegant, ethereal pieces, both light in construction and appearance.  Cashmere sweaters slightly tapering inward at the waist, organza ruffles and wool tank dresses contrasted with a few hints at melancholy, including voluminous fur-accented crop jackets, and dark sequins serving as gradients in a tank top and blouse.

Select pieces from the Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 collection are available for pre-order on marcjacobs.com.
