Trust Marc Jacobs to put on a fashion extravaganza at the end of New York Fashion Week. Amidst all the streetwear frenzy and minimalist collections the American capital city offered, Jacobs took everyone into a spectacular fashion fantasy. It was a trip to the past seen through the lens of the future. Every look seemed familiar yet exaggerated and oversaturated, packing in enough glamorous punch as possible. Some looks harkened back the incredible excesses of the 1980s when designers like Yves Saint Laurent and Emanuel Ungaro reigned supreme. In the same era, Karl Lagerfeld was just starting to pave his own iconic way into redefining the Chanel look. All these elements were seen on the show and more—ruffles were bigger, trousers were wider, and the silks and satins gleamed with superfluous sheen. Despite the references, however, the show was neither the past nor the present, but rather a vision of the future when the world would hopefully more fashionable and optimistic again.
