Punk was in the air at Marc Jacobs‘ Fall/Winter 2013 presentations, its influences drifting through both his men’s and women’s collections in Milan. For men, this meant rock and Teddy Boy references that spanned the two decades or so when London’s music scene and the New York Dolls ruled the airwaves. Models’ hair was slicked back rockabilly-style as they sauntered through in velvet-trimmed suits, chunky boots and pea coats while color blocking, Western-inspired details and retro hues lent a vintage flair to the garments. And, as if to reference the glamorous elements of the rock star life, a velvet tuxedo, navy blue mink stole and fur lapels provided appropriately luxe touches.
Ahead of its forthcoming release, Marc Jacobs has provided a preliminary look at its Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection of menswear as a part of Milan Fashion Week. Heavily inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic 1934 novel Tender is the Night and the French Riviera, the line features retro-inspired detailing throughout while boasting tailored suits, an array of stylish caps, bold stripes and all-over prints alongside the use of linen, seersucker and sun-washed hues.The perfect combination of pieces for the transition into summer, the Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 collection is due out in the early months of next year.
