A/W 15-16: Marc By Marc Jacobs
Feminism continues as a key fashion message at New York Fashion Week, thanks to the slogan-heavy Marc by Marc Jacobs show.
Political Slogans: Suffragette, Solidarity, Choice and Unite were just some of the feminist slogans emblazoned across shirts, trousers and dresses. These political messages worked particularly well when used as a graphic detail on sleeve and skirt hems.
Late 60s/Early 70s: The current 70s fashion mood – reflected in tartan trousers reminiscent of Scottish band Bay City Rollers and dungarees in prints by English textile designer William Morris – lends itself perfectly to the current feminist revival, which harks back to the original women’s movement of that era.
Military Zeal: Interwoven into the collection, military references – from cargo-style trousers to khaki wool coats with bellows pockets – added to the feel of retro radicalism.
