NYFW: polka dots galore at Marc by Marc Jacobs

1 / 3
Polka dots were found throughout the Marc by Marc Jacobs SS15 collection.

With their Spring-Summer 2015 collection, designers Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley remained more faithful than ever to the spirit of Marc by Marc Jacobs, all while adding a healthy dose of their own street style.

A pattern that has long been associated with Marc Jacobs, polka dots are found throughout the latest collection, adorning skirts, baggy pants and coats. Black dots of various sizes were scattered over backgrounds of pale blue, yellow and white.

Very androgynous on the whole thanks to massive T-shirts, oversize coats and baggy pants, the collection nonetheless reflects a few feminine touches, such as the dainty bandeau tops worn over dress shirts and T-shirts on the runway. There are also a few ultra-feminine pleated skirts and dresses, usually worn over latex leggings.

Especially impressive were the hybrid dresses -- bold feats of tailoring that prove Hillier and Bartley are right at home with the label.
