Trust Marc Jacobs to always bring in the glamour during New York Fashion Week! His voluminous Fall 2019 show reminded everyone that this idyllic designer still has a few surprises up his sleeve, as well as his own legacies in the decades that he’s been working in the industry. This latest offering was a “greatest hits” of sorts, playing with signature codes that have made him the fashion superstar he is today. Although everything was exaggerated, his iconic styles can still be deciphered, such as the slouchy knits and the tinge of sportswear layering that harkened back to his famous grunge style. The ruffles and prints were touches of the early 2000s, wherein Jacobs catered more to the upscale Park Avenue crowd before eventually going back to his underground roots. The feathers and pouf silhouettes, on the other hand, were tributes to the likes of Claude Montana and Yves Saint Laurent, couture masters that dominated in the 80s, the decade in which Jacobs was first discovered. And if the nostalgia wasn’t enough, then came legendary supermodel Christy Turlington, closing the show in a magnificent black-feathered frock. Her return to the runway, as well as the elegantly electric show, was the best cap-off to New York Fashion Week!
