With “our future,” “solidarity,” and “choice” emblazoned on various cuffs, hems, and pant legs of their fall collection, Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley’s Marc by Marc Jacobs girl army tapped into the “the personal is the political.” Studded berets topped lank, undone hair; silk scarves were knotted at the neck; clutches cinched around the waist on belts were designed for minimal form and maximum function. The clothes had a feeling of ’90s streetwear by way of precise military tailoring. Sporty color-blocked dresses felt athletic, and many of the separates—cargo pants, shapely wool coats, and cropped little jackets—were utilitarian in shape but printed with colorful, large-scale organic leaf prints of 19th century English textile designer and social activist William Morris. Intersperses of tartan and poufy crinoline silhouettes felt anarchic, especially when paired with heavy studded boots.
