70s tailleur, bows, rouge, ruffles, large volumes, and hats of all shapes bring joy to the New York catwalks
Dozens of models invade Park Avenue Armony with colorful looks, exaggerated, funny, sartorially impeccable but above all joyful.
“This show … It is a celebration of life, joy, equality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams and unheard-of future as we continue to learn from our past and fashion history,” the designer says on social media.
And the SS20 is really inspired by different figures but all brilliant and unique: Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, Doris Day, Anita Palleberg and Lee Radziwill: Marc Jacobs has created almost 60 looks to give a personality and an idea of individuality to each model , a smile and outfit with a vintage mood completed the picture.
Besides, dear America, Jacobs is your perfect representative. He’s a veteran who can still surprise his audience, the New York designer that international publishers know they’ll see on their pages — certainly not, maybe, and who will go to his show and then rush to the airport to catch flights to London, but who misses Jacobs’ fashion show.
A stubbornly optimistic collection in which guests sat on white metal lounge chairs on the opposite side of the room, the patterns appeared like little colorful birds on the horizon.
And while Mama Cass broadcast her version of “Dream a Little Dream of Me”, the models moved en masse: a wall of bright colors, floral patterns and extravagant ruffles. They approached more and more like a glorious flock of peacocks, walked among the chairs and, past the audience, walked through a series of doors. Time to turn around, and they were gone. It’s the show, my darling.
