Marc Jacobs need not stage his runway show on the street or accompanied by a live band. Instead he prefers to invite the industry into his wildest dreams on the last day of New York Fashion Week. This season was set at the Hammerstein Ballroom, where the theater was intimate and dark, decorated with 1,500 floating lights. It was 2 p.m. though, so we were stepping into Marc's afternoon nap.
He imagined a collection fit for the eccentric schoolgirl. She dressed in her bow-adorned blouse or the top half of her coordinate set then decided to ditch class and run away into a fantasy world. Cotton-candy-colored dreadlocks sat atop her head, but she walked with heavy steps (those sky-high boots or the alternative platform shoe and striped, embellished sock likely weighed more than she did).
For Marc, metallic suit sets meant moto coats with bundles of feathers that breezed off the shoulders. Forget the trousers, though, models shook it in matching booty shorts instead. There were plenty of sequined bombers and patchwork trenches to match kitschy backpacks, but Marc brought in his signature grunge with camouflage jackets too.
Of course, Marc's loyal supermodel set came through. His lineup included staples like Jamie Bochert, Kendall Jenner, Irina Shayk, and Adriana Lima, but Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill, Sara Sampaio, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn, Hanne Gaby Odiele, and both Hadid sisters were there too. After all, why dream a dream and not invite all your friends?
