                                                                                                                                                                                                      There's a crunchy aesthetic to Marc Jacobs' Spring 2014 show. This is obvious from the punk shorts, hippie tassels, and the dark, trashed-beach set of the runway show. Sex appeal, while never a Jacobs specialty, is completely out of the question here, as the heavy fabrics do everything to discourage this while appealing to more alternative sensibilities and other eclectic sub-interests.

                                                                                                                                                                                                      This dark beach-themed show stands in stark contrast to Tommy Hilfiger's brighter, sexier one held earlier during New York fashion week. This contrast speaks about the meaning and purpose of fashion itself. It may be possible to to call Jacobs' show a more intelligent presentation than Hilfiger's baser one, given a higher meaning to fashion other than overt sex-appeal, but the problem with that is perhaps there is no meaning to fashion (or anything..) whatsoever. If that's the case, then maybe the person that gets laid through direct sex-appeal is the smartest of the bunch.
