The stripes that were so prevalent in the Marc Jacobs collection were back, albeit to a lesser extent, for his diffusion Marc by Marc Jacobs lineup. However, that's pretty much where the similarities ended. Markedly more youthful, Spring 2013 is all about patterns, clashing colors, and layering for Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Blame the bright hues, slouchy silhouettes, and patterned turbans, but the season's lineup makes it hard not to want to board a plane and jet off somewhere exotic. It doesn't hurt that Jacobs offered fantastic swimwear options — one of the few to show suits that looked at once stylish and sturdy enough to survive the water — alongside his cozy knits, high-waisted trousers, printed suits, and summer dresses.
