On The Runways
Striped patterns dominated the season’s runways, particularly at Marc Jacobs’ S/S 13 show. The designer’s collection channeled a decidedly mod mood: thick parallel stripes covered everything from atailored blazer to a slim skirt and the Black And Ivory Silk Jersey Dress ($1900, 212.343.1490), paired with Black Patent Leather Mary Jane Flats ($625, 212.343.1490).
