Last of Bryant Park, Marc Jacobs.

Posted in fashion week., new york city. by modman on February 20, 2010

Attending the Marc Jacobs show at The NY Armory was surreal, just like attending the DVF show. Marc is pretty much a headliner for New York Fashion Week and he is known not only for his shows and designs but also for his after-parties.

This collection served as the antithesis of whats been going on (as I’ve mentioned before, grunge, dirty, black leather) and MJ continued his use of neutrals and pastel colors that evoked a romantic feeling, especially with “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” playing in the background.

As dreamy and serene as any Jacobs show in recent memory—and how typical of him to intuit that the world is craving serenity right now—the show played like a nostalgia trip, one so lovely it was quite easy to be seduced. “It’s refreshing to see something that isn’t trying so hard to be new,” Jacobs, subversive as ever, said after the show. “There’s so much striving for newness now that newness feels less new.”

Cynics might argue that he took the easy way out this season. Let them; Jacobs would probably argue right back. These clothes are money in the bank not because they’re “safe,” but on account of their built-in resonances for the house’s many followers, Twitter and otherwise, around the world. For all our technological advances, it’s the emotional connection that makes the sale these days.

I couldnt have put it better myself. MJ follows his intuition and I believe thats what drives his collections and is why they are so well-received. What girl wouldnt want a romantic, lady-like MJ frock or fur to add to her wardrobe?
