At this years fashion week Marc Jacobs let the bells ring on the flip…
It was a on a new level of memorizing!
Applause, applause, Marc Jacobs! The Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection is stunning!
We can’t say enough. The fashion show grabbed us at first sight when we saw her gothy black liner and lipstick, foot-high platforms, shrunken band-concert sweatshirt, crocheted doily collar, and full skirt ballooning above a crinoline, we knew we were in for a show.
Like a lot of MJ collections, this years Marc Jacobs Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection was full of callbacks; one of the pleasures of attending his shows is that they stir up memories. That concert sweatshirt was, of course, a direct reference to Spring 2016, but it took me back to Spring 2006, the season of the Penn State Blue Band.
Black-and-white polka dots called to mind Jacobs’s Edie Sedgwick show; the long capes evoked last Fall’s Diana Vreeland moment. That game could go on and on all night. The trick was how Jacobs made the clothes both familiar and new, recasting all of them in black and white and shades of gray, and playing with proportions. Most of the time, he sized jackets and coats way, way up, but he shrunk some, too, like Julia Nobis’s fabulous crystallized bolero. The outerwear and the sparkly evening pieces are likely to be the major takeaways for retailers.
Jacobs came out for his bow in a suit and a T-shirt he’s designed for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Bringing it all back around to the subject of New York Fashion Week, Jacobs will be the see now-buy now item of the season.
