Marc Jacobs Spring 2017: 90s Rave looks Lite up Marc’s Twisted Fantasy

Marc Jacobs Spring 2017 brightly colored rave club wear is the polar opposite of Fall’s dark gothic beauty.  The collection, Marc’s interpretation of “twisted street wear,” features a myriad of looks built around mini’s and short hemlines. Denim is key, shown in bright colors with a velvety flocked and shiny satin effect. Cotton twill provides the base for camouflage printed military jackets and slim cargo pants. A silver leather moto jacket with fox fur sleeves, belted hot pink suede trench, rainbow washed sequin coat with mink collar, and a patch-worked suede ¾ length coat round out  the series of bold outerwear offerings. Mini dresses come in embroidered sheer lace, iridescent sequins and metallic zebra prints and ruffled miniskirts show off playful embellished thigh-high socks. Hot pants in satin denim further emphasize the short silhouette, paired with strong shouldered embellished jackets. Artist Julie Verhoeven’s graphic illustrations cover a satin denim jacket via python and suede appliques as well as striped cashmere sweatshirts. Modern graphic iconography including hairdryers, electrical outlets, castles, frog, lips, rainbow colored teeth and a skyline of New York adorn Marc Jacobs x Julie Verhoeven python shoulder bags, backpacks and leather messenger bags perfectly compliment the zany ready-to-wear. Killer platforms boots provide the perfect pedestal once again, this time in colorful patch-worked thigh highs, trompe l’oeil athletic-sock boots and velvet sandals with metallic embroidery detail.  The clothing hits include patchwork leather and silver lamé evening wear.

Julie Verhoeven is a British artist and illustrator known for her whimsical designs, infused with pop culture references.  Collaborating with Marc Jacobs for the Spring 2017 collection, Verhoeven created modern cartoon imagery used in landscape patch-work across all accessory categories.

The beauty backstage at Marc Jacobs included pretty pastel eye makeup by Francois Nars and rainbow yarn dreadlocks sourced from Etsy, and styled by Guido Palau.
