After years of Bohemian hipster girls, Marc Jacobs dove back into the 1990's to dig up grungy Goth for his fall 2016. There was a mix of crushed velvet, dark prints, lace, lace collars and crochet. All the fabrics I lived in back in the decade while I was still in fashion school. Black, grey, purple, oxblood, that was my color palette too.
The super smoky eyes on this runway I attempted but was never able to master. I did love the dark vampy lipstick though. I'm so glad it's back. The epically high platform heeled boots were much more intense than my favorite "witchy" boots from Parsons School of Design.
This is one of my favorite collections from Marc Jacobs ever. While the styling may be theatrical, the individual clothing items are beautiful in their own right. They are perfectly suited to those not inclined to the dark side.
