As the closing show of New York Fashion Week, Marc Jacobs chose to take us in a different direction for fall 2015.

Instead of re-appropriating the trends others stuck to, Jacobs went on a time trip. The Era: Early 20th Century. The Woman: On a Western frontier waiting for her lone ranger.

Through the use of print petty coats, knee length skirts, elbow length gloves and linear prints Jacobs conveyed the feel of another world. A world we’ve only seen in old Western movies.

“Last season, it was so about military as an influence but it became cartoony; this is more about military precision with no military reference,” Jacobds told WWD.

While the overall collection was dark, set against the backdrop of artifacts from Diana Vreeland’s Manhattan home, Jacobs added touches of sequins and patent leather boots for interest.

In addition to being one of the more well thought out collections, it also was the most covered up, with models exposing little skin. There was an overwhelming feel of conservative modesty but edge with the beauty palette almost masculine.

While the overall collection can be argued as a favorite or a least favorite, it was daring. And isn’t that what we love Jacobs for most?
