From see-now, buy-now shows to traditional runways and all that’s in-between, see the standout looks from New York’s top collections.
In a season where the biggest trend has been designers showing their love for New York City, Marc Jacobs’s runway was the caramel coating on the juicy big apple. Through exaggerated Kangol-style hats, Seventies-worthy platform boots, big gold pendants and a synthesis of street style spanning from the Sugarhill Gang to OutKast, his collection was a reminder that revolutions begin in the street. At precisely 2 PM, the first modesl walked out in what Jacobs called his “representation of the well-studied dressing up of casual sportswear. It is an acknowledgement and gesture of my respect for the polish and consideration applied to fashion from generation that will forever be the foundation of youth culture street style.” He was speaking specifically of the hip-hop generation of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.
