Inspired by 1920s activist and writer Nancy Cunard, the collection was what they call “de rigueur” meaning “in vogue” or up to date with latest fashion. In an interview with Forbes, Bibhu Mohapatra labelled the woman who would wear this collection as “impatient of her individuality” Designer said that he wanted to channel curnad’s independence, strength and eccentric spirit as well as reflect her exotic travels in prints. Evening wear included hand pleated chiffon and silk gowns while woven leather made an impressive day wear.
It was quite scenery for eyes to watch! The not so evening-wear collection of Marc Jacobs has it all for high-school teenagers. Even with the fade-away shades of Olive, tan and blue, he perverted the anonymity into something flamboyant. Flirty, hyper-sculpted minis. Long, shapeless schoolgirl dresses. Slouchy overalls. Cropped cargo pants. Waist-conscious jackets cut with militaristic precision. Giant sweats cut with room for two. Cargo pockets abounded, here, there and everywhere. The embellished sweats made the repeated entry following Jacob’s previous collection.
