Marc by Marc Jacobs enters its second collection under new management – prepare yourselves for an intergalactic adventure

Following on from Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley's impressive first offering at Marc by Marc Jacobs for Autumn/Winter 14, the pair have matched the quality of their fun and lively presentation with a sharp offering for the Cruise 14/15 season, from space.

And the pair remained true to their inspiration, researching the film Another Earth and the story Mercury 13 – the thirteen American women who, as part of a privately funded program, underwent some of the same physiological screening tests as the astronauts selected by NASA on April 9, 1959 for Project Mercury. 

As such, images from space and star filled galaxies are seen across clothes, shoes and the second half of the lookbook sees earthy colours and elegant skirts with pleats. Shimmering translucent organza silhouettes – as "strong as an astronauts' helmet" – are also present.
