NEW YORK -- Marc Jacobs closed out New York Fashion Week with a spectacular, sepia-tinted light show Thursday night at the Lexington Armory.
The scene: A runway in the round with a giant orb casting a warm, yellow glow on the crowd, which included Sofia Coppola and Debbie Harry. As the models filed out, they created a cinematic, sepia-tinted dreamscape. Bathed in the glow, the clothes appeared to be black and white, their textures and shine heightened. Then the models came out again for a second lap, this time bathed in natural light. That’s when reality set in and all the colors, patterns and details came into focus.
The look: Chic sleepwalkers. Relaxed elegance. Larger-than-life, silver screen nostalgia. Evening pajamas in lamé or sparkling crystal net embroidery; micro-sequin scoop-neck gowns; ladylike coats and jackets with single tab-button closures at the top. Lots of downy-soft fur, including a 1950s-inspired fur jacket and pencil skirt suit, and fur stoles that the models held close like teddy bears.
The verdict: The stuff of fashion dreams. Because really, what could be better than glamorous pajama dressing? Rescheduled from its original time slot on Monday night, this show was worth the wait. It was the perfect lullaby to put fashion week to sleep.
