Marc Jacobs has perfected the art of fashion 180. The past four runway seasons have seen the designer send out long-line futuristic neutrals, uniform-inspired voluminous frocks, strict Diana Vreeland–influenced maxi dresses, and a full-throttle ode to Americana that included everything from varsity sweaters to Fiorucci homages. The one constant in Jacobs’s work: layering.
Put bluntly, no one layers like Marc Jacobs. The prime example is his Fall 2006 collection, in which almost every look included up to seven ready-to-wear pieces tucked over and under one another. At the time, Vogue.com’s Nicole Phelps described it as “a troupe of vagabonds in muted layers of plaid flannel, oversize knits, skirts worn atop pants, legwarmers, and tams whose cumulative effect was paradoxically chic.”
So when it comes time to watch the live-stream of Jacobs’s show this evening, trust that among his far-flung inspirations there will be several layering tips worth applying to your wardrobe. Until then, relive his best bundled-up moments here.
