NYFW SS18: Marc Jacobs

MARC Jacobs is known for his set design and did not disappoint by coming back with an, albeit quiet, bang for his NYFW SS18 show. With no set and no sound, all that could be heard from the single front row that spanned the Park Avenue Armory was the tassels on the models shoes and the beads that bounced together on their clothes. There was silence until the finale where an operatic piece from the French film Diva echoed around the massive space.



Accessories and sequins played a huge role in Jacobs’ imaging of a place beyond an urban space, with elegantly wrapped silk turbans making the models heavy, black-lined eyes pop. Retro patterns and colours reminiscent of 1970s interior design were also present such as brown, orange and green. Massively oversized jumpsuits and loosely tailored suits paired with bum bags and gloves added a tourist vibe to the collection.



Jacobs imagined the show as somewhere beyond the urban landscape of bustling New York, but somewhere more exotic and evidently more peaceful. A calming, poignant ending to a busy week at NYFW, enabling the fashion world to take a deep breath before the next storm that is LFW.
