Our editor in chief is not a fan of brown clothing. It's a fact she's never been shy to admit. "It's just so brown," she might say in passing. Though we see her point — it's certainly not the most inspiring hue — Marc Jacobs has us reconsidering. Shades of brown and taupe and beige and cream dominated much of his dreamy runway show last night. And hey, he might have turned us fans, after all.
In between the suspended clouds and the, well, floor, models took their turns down the expansive catwalk wearing creams, taupes, beiges, purples, mauves, blues, and yes, browns. The silhouettes were evocative of late '60s/early '70s — think clean-lined tunic dresses, knit sweaters, riding pants, fur-lined jackets, and sequin dresses. It was a bit clinical but still full of life. We especially loved the pieces with large (but not overbearing) ruffles and mod swirls. Yes, even if some of them were brown.
