Inspired by the legendary Diana Vreeland, the latest Marc Jacobs collection features a legion of grunge-looking ballerinas with elegant and eccentric styles.

American designer Marc Jacobs provided a dazzling finale to New York Fashion Week on Thursday with a collection of severe but eccentric elegance that followed cashmere cool from Ralph Lauren and urban eroticism from Calvin Klein.

Jacobs invited film director Sofia Coppola, Blondie frontwoman Deborah Harry and actress Christina Ricci to an intimate show staged to look like a boudoir with a painted couch as a backdrop and hanging ropes.

The designer, considered perhaps the most innovative of his generation, was reportedly inspired by Diana Vreeland, the late fashion editor, who was also an American debutante and who trained once as a ballet dancer.

While working on this collection, Jacobs immersed himself in the world of Diana Vreeland through her book titled 'Memos' – an illustrated collection of professional memos and letters from Diana Vreeland during her tenure at the helm of Vogue.

Models powered down the runway in black gloves to the elbow, A-line skirts in floral or plastic pleats, tweed suits, twinsets, monochrome fur coats while wearing dark lipstick and hair pulled back in top knots.
