New York Fashion Week ended with what seemed a clear nod to the fashion week in Paris, which begins in three weeks.
Marc Jacobs has the curtain with his show for his brand of self-titled long-distance traffic, but also beautiful and striking that the show was, it was difficult not to be distracted by the various boards, he seemed to settle on another label.
Since John Galliano was pulled in as a creative director for Christian Dior earlier this year after shouting anti-Semitic attacks in a Parisian bar, there have been many rumors and no confirmation on who would take over in August, the brand French. Nearly six months later, many fashion insiders whisper that Jacobs has all but signed the contract to make Dior jacket and an official announcement will be made at the beginning of Paris Fashion Week.
While Jacobs will be forever associated with the grunge look he so loved in the 1990 - which earned him a cult fired from his first label, Perry Ellis, when he made a grunge collection for the brand - the truth is that he has left behind gritty origins long ago and has been the restoration of a decidedly ritzier client. After all, as well as designing his own label and its offshoot diffusion Marc by Marc Jacobs, the man is the artistic director of Louis Vuitton, and if there is one thing ritzier French brand known for Vuitton luggage astronomical price is a French brand known for the astronomical price of fashion, like Christian Dior. Time Vuitton demonstrated that can withstand being at the head of a French brand, and their increasingly experimental eyes at Marc Jacobs to prove he could fit in nicely with a label that has created the new look more than 60 years.
In his own label, the female gaze dropped once at much tricksier specialized. (Welfare of the proportions which has experimented with most are his: Jacobs has long since abandoned the Jewish aspect schlubby, he was in its infancy and is now an obsessive bodybuilder to the point that it was almost unrecognizable when he took his bow this week.)
His show on Thursday proved once again to all this and more. While Christian Dior, a woman can refuse to cellophane and silicone dresses, socks or shoes with silver, was more than ostentatious real showman. It ended with the very knee skirts and cropped jackets were paired with rounded, creating a silhouette that has been ordered, but surprisingly distorted, as if to say, I looked in a mirror Mad Men Peggy Fair. Formalwear - an important part of the spot Dior - it was just beautiful, and the huge shape of beads and crafts and sewing careful. One of the obvious lack of the show was - surprisingly by Jacobs - a bag attractive. Instead, the man who sailed handbag trend for some time has shown that the leather cases rocked the dull side, like a watered-down take on Prada bowling bag made nearly a decade ago.
But perhaps there was a statement of Jacobs is finished being known primarily for leather goods. It is the fashion of the time.
