One of the most successful designers of the 21st century, native New Yorker Marc Jacobs displayed huge potential from an early age having attended the prestigious Parsons School of Art and Design in New York City and winning numerous design awards. An emblem of Marc’s success is his contemporary secondary line which he launched in 2001, Marc by Marc Jacobs. Although the contemporary line has now bid a farewell to the fashion world, A Suit That Fits Ireland pays tribute to the designer’s most memorable power suits.
The affordable, youthful New York street style line reached new heights of success through its ‘cheaper’ prices representing Jacobs as an unconventional, inspiring, modern designer. Unfortunately it has recently announced that Marc by Marc Jacobs has reached the end of the line after a highly acclaimed fourteen years. The line’s appreciation of fine tailoring offers suggestions towards the creation of one’s New York style inspired suit.
His recent collection (Marc Jacobs Resort for Spring/Summer 2015) adds a pop of colour to the stale winter wardrobe. Focusing on bright and luminescent pieces, Jacobs created a stunning two piece suit which embodied the free, warm essence of summer. Switching from the deep, dark toned suit to a mustard yellow printed design featuring the colour white and lining in black. A brave statement yet at the same time charming, the combination of colours work accordingly to create this striking two piece suit which could filter into a summer wedding, communion or any occasion and supply a sartorial twist to the typical occasional wear.
The latest suit by Jacobs was seen during the launch of his Fall 2015 collection. Jacob’s presented a divine idea of tailoring without it being extremely fitting. The Parson’s prodigy designed a playful pink two piece with black detail around the rim of the lapel on the blazer and classic jetted pockets. The long blazer featured just one button with a leather strap around the waist. Paired with a classic trouser the beautiful two piece is innovative, stylish and original. It expresses the idea that the suit can very easily be accessorised even if it is with a simple belt.
Jacobs proves that a statement piece can be enhanced through print and still deliver the sleek, smart look the power suit provides. The texturised black lapels on the blazer and jetted pockets break up the bold print and display the two piece as a more collective attire. One can encourage a waist to the suit to accent the female shape or make a bold statement like Jacobs himself. Jacobs evolution in the world of fashion shows him to be quite the insightful designer when it comes to wearing a suit. He exhibits a sense of flavour in his tailored pieces which can be adapted to all individual styles.
