Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley of Marc by Marc Jacobs Gave Us One for the Tough Girls

Until last year, no one but Marc Jacobs himself had ever had creative control over his eponymous sister line, the cool and slightly less expensive Marc by Marc Jacobs. But the line has had trouble maintaining a strong, appealing brand over the past few years, and in May, Jacobs made two new hires — Katie Hillier as Creative Director and Luella Bartley as Head Designer — in order to focus more on his primary label, Marc Jacobs.

Tuesday's show was the first chance we've had to see what Hillier and Bartley would do with the line. So what does the new Marc by Marc Jacobs girl look like when she's designed by someone other than Jacobs?

"She's…a bit feisty and sulky," Bartley told WWD, which broke away from its normally reserved tone to call the show "badass, if charmingly so." She wears tight Hunger Game braids, but she's no character — skater fashion comes to mind, as does biker chic. And she definitely doesn't want to be your baby tonight.
