Marc by Marc Jacobs A/W11

The diffusion line saw a 70s palette of brown, beige and maroon via tweed suits and maxi leopard prints

Marc Jacobs' younger line, MbyMJ, moved into the Armory on Tuesday afternoon for a more relaxed, casual and comfortable version of its older and more elegant sister. But this positioning also makes the diffusion line wearable all the way through and there wasn't much anyone could complain about in this A/W collection. Using a brown, beige and burgundy basic palette, Jacobs painted a 70s inspired picture with tweed suits, maroon brown cords, trench coats with over sized fur collars and zig zag patterns on dresses and skirts.

There was a daringly beautiful brown and gold colour combo, a blue and purple leopard print and a general sense of maxi prints clashing all the way through. The guys wore big and warm trench coats and double breasted jackets with roll necks underneath. A female model even sported a burgundy red velour suit. After a few bright green pieces we went in to the grande finale and a more formal section. Here, we got to see the glam side of Marc by Marc Jacobs through gold trousers and light pink silk dresses for the girls and shimmering lurex tops for the boys.
