New York Fashion Week: Marc Jacobs Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear show report

Fashion

Despite starting his new Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear fashion show 1.5 hours later, due to a truck with the prepared looks stuck in a jaw-dropping traffic jam in the “Big Apple”, Marc Jacobs eventually showcased a vivid fashion retrospective.

 

 

The designer, who turns 55 this year, looked back with nostalgia on the early collections of Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, once again cementing the opinion that he’s always wanted to take his place, and on the roaring 80s through the eyes of Yves Saint Laurent, and with his characteristic boyish naiveté showed his old dreams on the runway.

Exaggerated flowers made of cloth, voluminous flounces and draperies, the abundance of feathers, mysterious veils, and dramatic Pierrot collars and sleeves. The combination of colors and textures was theatrically simulated and sublime at the same time, accenting the undoubted eccentric genius of Marc Jacobs.
