Descending the escalators in sisterly pairs, Marc’s models made for sunny viewing, especially because he gave bright yellow a rare fashion moment. The clothes worked the happy side of chic. Save for a few pants, the show was all about dresses in three lengths — mini, midi, maxi — and all about the Sixties. Jacobs was inspired by Buren’s “Les Deux Plateaux” in the Palais Royal.

He also switched his graphic interest from stripes to checks in various sizes interspersed with clean florals. As always, the workmanship approached couture level with much of the craftsmanship in the fine print: embroideries of near-microscopic sequins creating full-body shimmer; a flocked-velvet effect achieved by “tuffetage,” an embroidery carpet-making technique; floral lapel corsages set into sterling silver stems.
