2013 Fall New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs
Marc Jacobs has come to be known as the ultimate showman in NYC fashion, and Fall 2013 upheld his reputation to a T. The capacity crowd entered to a glowing yellow orb at the end of the circular runway — notable for providing sepia light that rendered the chic showgoers in sepia-tinged black and white (so much for those wild colours for the street style photographers!). The models did a full, brisk lap around the runway to start the show, all under the sepia light. After the last model exited the runway, the lighting shifted and the models came back out to be seen for the lovely, soft colour palette that Jacobs picked for the season — soft moss green, pale mauve, camel, greiges. The line was filled with the very wearable — cable knit sweaters, double-breasted coats, shirtdresses — to the very unwearable — see the model in just hot pants and gloves. Evening was particularly strong with bias-cut gowns with open backs mixed in with liquid metallic gowns that are begging to be flown out to Hollywood to the Oscars. The designer, clad in pyjamas for his finale walk, created a thrilling presentation and a collection that we'll be thrilled to see in stores.
