First Dibs: Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 Look 28

Published February 21, 2014

Marc Jacobs had a lot riding on his NYFW show, and not only because his was the grand finale to eight days of inventive and dramatic collections. This season marked the designer’s first show since ending his 16-year tenure as artistic director of Louis Vuitton; fittingly, his pre-fall emphasized whites, creams, and neutrals, which evoked a sense of blank canvases and new beginnings. Though we never say no to black, we love the gentler tone of this caramel-colored pant/tunic combination. Fur is another obvious seasonal staple, and rendered one-of-a-kind here in the form of this ombre bomber jacket—the perfect finishing touch of outerwear to any ensemble. Add in the richly cream-colored headband (cue obligatory reference to the bleached eyebrows; to those, we say proceed at your own risk) and the look feels futuristic, innovative, and elegant. We call first dibs.

THIS FIRST DIBS ITEM WAS SELECTED BY INTERVIEW ASSISTANT MARKET EDITOR STEPHANIE STRAUSS.
