Channeling Warhol muse Edie Sedwick through an invented character called "Ruby Jean," Jacobs' pared-down silhouettes—like this sweeping floor-length T-shirt dress—felt refreshingly clean compared to the over-the-top embellishments he's favored in recent seasons.

While Jacobs' take on "Factory" girls evoked the likes of Peggy Moffatt and Twiggy through undulating stripes and teased-up ponytails, the looks felt modern and cool. This daringly groovy jumpsuit in black and white featured an on-trend wide leg and a sexy, scooped out keyhole neckline.

Jacobs' smart skirt suits—which have been retail favorites over the past few seasons—were simplified for Spring '13. This version featured a crisp, cropped white jacket with contrasting black accents on the pockets.

Clean, simple pieces like this sleek leather overcoat with a contrasting white collar reflected the minimalist mood that has been overtaking the fashion scene ever since Phoebe Philo took the reins at Celine.

Furthering fall's "checkered' trend, Jacobs proposed simple mod overcoats and matching pencil skirts in a warbly black and white plaid.

The collection wasn't without its playful moments: An oh-so-short babydoll dress in taupe was finished with a ruffle hem trimmed in white and paired with dainty bow kitten heels.

We wont be half surprised if Jacob's glossy black bowl cut—the very same sported by Peggy Moffatt in the '60s—resonates as a major hair trend next spring.

Simple khaki pieces like this clean overcoat and matching knee-length skirt were given a little Warholian cool with the addition of pointy gold booties.

Jacobs loves a good ruffle, and the look worked well on crisp satin skirt suits that called to mind a particularly fashion-forward episode of "Mad Men."
