American designer Marc Jacobs delivered quite a show at the New York Fashion Week on Wednesday. Jacobs’ show included a catwalk full of the “it” girls of fashion. Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and more included.
The designer’s Spring 2018 collection was wrapped up with a presentation of singer Charli XCX.
Going out with a bang for New York Fashion Week
The American designer took us to the tropics for his Spring 2018 collection. It was filled with enough colors, florals, and sparkles to last us for fashion weeks to come.
While in the past Jacobs has grown a following for his city-chic vibes, this new collection was somewhat out of the ordinary. Instead, it was a “reimagining of seasons past somewhere beyond the urban landscape of New York City.”
If you blinked, you missed the small charms that hung from the models’ duffles, subtly spelling “somewhere” — the name of the collection.
You had to look closely to see the intricate details on the gloves, catch the simple florals on the cross bodies and, most importantly, design inclusions from past seasons.
“We’re calling the whole thing ‘Somewhere’ — from Sofia [Coppola]’s movie. But also, last season was all about this urban landscape, and this is not about any [particular] landscape. It’s somewhere, I’m not sure where” the designer said according to Women’s Wear Daily.
Fashion Week icons Bella and Gigi Hadid, Winnie Harlow, Taylor Hill and Binx Walton all walked for Jacobs in eye-catching prints, while Jacobs’ favorite Kendall Jenner bared all in a bright yellow see-through turtleneck.
Closing the show was newcomer Kaia Gerber, daughter of Cindy Crawford, in a look that’ll dazzle for years to come.
Debuting at NYFW
On the final day of New York Fashion Week, a pop star, a makeup artist, a hairdresser, a stylist, a publicist, a writer, and a photographer crowded into a snug room at the Gramercy Park Hotel that was soundtracked by the latest music hits.
The British singer performed in her very first Marc Jacobs show, a rite of passage for any young It girl in the making, especially a rising pop star who aspires to hit the heights of some of the women who would be her companions in the front row, like Courtney Love and Nicki Minaj.
“I’m really excited,” she said while getting ready for the show, “I know it is one of the biggest shows.”
“It is very interesting going to shows. There is a certain atmosphere that is not really created in many other places. There’s a sense of excitement and nervousness, an interesting combination.”
“And, also, it’s funny that there are so many amazing clothes in one room; of course the runway, but even people who are just sitting there. There are so many serious outfits. It’s a room full of characters.”
