At this year’s NYFW, Marc Jacobs didn’t disappoint with a catwalk full of 1940s-era glam, from pencil skirts to fur stoles to even a few menswear inspired pieces. The clothes in many cases were Dita Von Teese-esque, that is to say covered up old Hollywood sexy, and in some cases with modern updates like a wiggle dress made entire of black fur. There were also other fur dresses and fur pieces that had a more 1960s-reminiscent A line shape. There was also some pinstripe action going on in the form of boxy blazers and high-waisted short shorts.
The only downside to all this beauty (for me) was not having the time to capture each look—there were dozens! However, I ended up choosing four from photos I saw on style.com that I thought reflected the overall mood of the collection.
Perhaps even more than the clothes, what’s also gotten a lot of attention so far is the makeup worn by the models—smokey eyes, understated lips and the short Joan Jett wigs worn by each of them. Frankly I was impressed how well such a badass haircut went with the sparkly evening gowns. Seriously tempted to cut my hair!
Just amazed with the way you sketch.
Your blog is superb!!
These four pretty much sum up the collection for me too. Nicely illustrated and I like how you have referenced Dita Von Tesse here, new observation. And yes even I fell in love with the wigs. Plus I can see this is a much talked about collection, as I was talking about Lily McMenamy’s ‘toplessness’ back on my blog.
