Fall should be so much about raining and cloudy sky that Marc Jacobs imagined the right weather matching fashion ever in his Fall Winter 2014 2015 collection!
Swearing this is far from being retro inspired, the looks designed and sent by Marc Jacobs on the New York Fashion Week runway kept providing a familiar feeling of déjà-vu. Simple constructions, earth-toned, basic items building up a layered approach of the cold season.
Ankle boots with lateral zipper
Zippers have been a style helper this fashion week season. At least as far as footwear goes, I’ve seen it again and again, so it’s hardly a surprise to find it again in Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 collection – notice the rounded heel!
Graphic ankle boots
A slight variation of the above, the mid-heel booties with graphic motifs look like vintage footwear in perfect shape. I’m having issues labeling this as a smart designer move who managed to bring back past fashion times so accurately, or as an attempt to only focus on relaxed yet smart and practical style for yet another season.

Over the knee suede graphic boots
While trying to discard the musketeer feeling I’ve had when first seeing the graphic booties I stumbled across these thigh high boots. Surely I’m more inclined to not see sixties fashion all over again!
A mandatory presence on any Fall Winter 2014 runway, Marc Jacobs not only sent models wearing luxurious finish sneakers but also wore a pair himself, to take his designer bow at the end of the presentation. And he wore Adidas Originals white sneakers paired with a dark burgundy, three striped pair of Adidas tracksuit pants. Yes he did! (this should be the after-Vuitton walk in the park for Marc)
Marc Jacobs Fall 2014
Bags were so simply shaped and Spartan-ly constructed that I can only differentiate them after the leather finish used. Suede, quilted, ostrich leather or fur, the bags were all hanging from a chain strap waist-long with a rigid construction. (images styledotcom)
