Circular patterned tights were a
big theme as well as black
Na-na-na-na- come on! S-S-&-M-M! Yes, these may be Rihanna's lyrics to S&M, but that is what should have been playing in the background to the runway show of Marc Jacob's A/W collection. Yes, S&M is big this A/W if we are to believe the fashion magazines, and Marc Jacobs is leading the pack. With shiny patent blacks and pencil skirts, sex was most definitely in the air on the Marc Jacobs catwalk. Models wore saucer hats with chin straps, to go with the S&M theme and chunky wedged brogues were also worn (brogues seem to still be going strong, they were in the Dior collection too). Circles were a theme too, with tights having circular patterns and button hats being word too. Marc Jacobs also showcased another trend that is predicted to be big this season- masculinity. Many of the outfits had a masculine influence and tailoring to them- which gives off a sort of dominatrix feel to the whole collection. Is pretty and prim of S/S out and being swiftly replaced by masculine and dominatrix? Only time will tell...
The gloves give off even more
of a dominatrix feel
All black outfits were popular, especially patent black
