The Marc Jacobs Resort 2015 collection featured velvet slips studded with gigantic crystals and sequined leopard-print shorts suits cut at thigh-grazing lengths and paired with sheer tights and satin sling-backs.

As far as festive footwear goes, the slouchy, sparkly boots are likely to make the biggest impression on the dance floor, especially with embellished frocks that were covered with oversize Marie Antoniette–style bows.

At the risk of stating the obvious, “It’s a party,” is how Joseph Carter, Marc Jacobs’ head of women’s design, described the lineup, presented for the first time as a mini show at Manhattan’s Academy Mansion. “It’s punchy, something a little gaudy.”
