Marc Jacobs Probes The Darker Side of ’80s Glam

GETTY IMAGES
It started at Tom Ford, the first big Show of New York fashion week: wild colored animal print, over-the-top sequins, hot hot pink and a Pointer Sister’s soundtrack. It continued in fits and starts throughout the week—banana clips and mini skirts at Alexander Wang, pleather dresses at Christian Siriano. And by the time Marc Jacobs closed out fashion week it became crystal clear: The '80s, in all their brightly-colored, shoulder-padded, tacky glory, are back. In the same spare set he has used the past few seasons—just two rows of chairs flanking a narrow runway inside the cavernous Park Avenue armory—Marc Jacobs sent out a dramatic, voluminous, and richly textured fall 2018 collection. There was cashmere and taffeta and velvet and tweed. There were...

Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 Ad Campaign

Marc-Jacobs-spring-2018-ad-campaign-the-impression-04
The era of self-reflection is in the air this season as many a creative director have been turning inward to address the challenges outward. But more on that with our spring The Impression print issue. For Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 ad campaign Jacobs has teamed again with longtime lensman collaborator Steven Meisel to play with the idea of light, self refection, perverse proportion, and color. The result is one of the strongest campaigns of the season that blends reality with illusion. The artist effort feels like an updated version of “The Mirror of Venus” by Sir Edward Coley Burne-Jones with maidens entranced by a reflective pool in visual conceit. Models Aube Jolicoeur, Cristina Piccone, Fran Summers, Léa Julian, Remington Williams, Sophie Martynova, and Sveta Black play the maidens while the unsung hero...

Naomi Campbell And Marc Jacobs Design T-Shirts For World Aids Day

gettyimages-565072799-1512054134

Naomi Campbell and Marc Jacobs are teaming up for an important cause. The legendary fashion icons designed a limited-edition T-shirt, which will raise funds for UNAIDS to support people around the world who are impacted by HIV. The shirt will go on sale on Dec. 1—World AIDS Day—and will retail for $55 on marcjacobs.com and in stores.
The British supermodel first came up with the idea after attending a World AIDS Day event at the U.N. last year, and called Jacobs to see if he would be interested in collaborating.
“Marc being Marc—he’s an amazing, loyal friend for 31 years—said, ‘Absolutely, I want to do this,'" Campbell said.

@kaiagerber
After dominating her first fashion season taking over the runways of Marc Jacobs in New York to walking alongside her mother, Cindy Crawford at the Versace show, Kaia Gerber has solidified her spot as fashion's newest It Girl. And along with her supermodel genes, Gerber's effortless beauty style with her radiant skin and tousled waves is the total embodiment of natural glam. This week attending a taping of model Karlie Kloss' new talk show, Movie Night With Karlie Kloss, Gerber stepped out with sleek, middle parted waves styled by hairstylist Laura Polko, and a subtle taupe smokey, with bronzed cheekbones and a dreamy mauve lip by makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani.

Can Wearing an XXL Hat Supersize Your Self-Esteem?

Can’t-miss-them hats were a beacon trend for Fall 2017: Prada whipped up exaggerated knit conductor caps; leather baseball caps at Coach received a gnomish fur treatment; there was even a Kentucky Derby number at Miu Miu that appeared to be spun out of green cotton candy. And sure, the bold headgear is packed full of funk and fun when elevated on the runway, but I wanted to know: Can the outré hats cut it on the street? I started off with a puffed-up camel newsboy cap from Marc Jacobs—it seemed the most approachable, and Jacobs’s sidewalk-stage runway convinced me that the hat could be worn in real life. My colleagues said I looked like a mushroom—no, wait,...

The Nails At Marc Jacobs Were Inspired By An Old, Overgrown Gel Mani

screen-shot-2017-09-13-at-6-45-14-pm-1505342729

What's old is new again. In the case of the Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 show, that means an old gel manicure. Never one to shy away from a weird beauty moment, Marc Jacobs sent his models down the runway wearing a manicure that was meant to mimic the look of a grown-out gel manicure: glossy and shiny nails with a bit of noticeable blank space left down by the cuticle.

Marc Jacobs’ Nails The ’90s Hip Hop Vibe With His Latest Film

jacobs-2-1503679225
Hollywood releases blockbusters over the summer. Fashion releases the Fall campaigns. This week’s major offering is a new visual experience from Marc Jacobs. Directed by Jesse Jenkins, the clip features models Alek Wek, Natalie Westling, Slick Woods, Kiki Willems, and more all quietly posing to the tune of “Tomboy” by Princess Nokia. The commercial acts as a continuation of the still photos shot by David Hughes that were released earlier this month. Overall it’s a rather subdued campaign by Jacobs standards, who in past years has had major image rollouts for his star-studded fall promotions. But it’s not like he needed to go the extra mile to bring eyes on his work this year, as this season was a big hit among...

Five Fantasy Fashion Holidays

366645
The fashion calendar dictates that Autumn/Winter collections hit stores in the deep summer months, leaving plenty of opportunity for those coveted new styles to work their way into your suitcase this holiday season. With July just around the corner, that time has almost come, and whilst chunky knitwear and heavyweight fabrications aren’t necessarily suitable for that beach break in Alicante, there will always be pieces that are – look no further than Balenciaga’s skimpy floral A/W17 dresses as a case in point. With this in mind, we turned to this season’s runways to picture where the muses behind the collections might have travelled for their own holidays. From Raf Simons’ debut at Calvin Klein, where the Belgian designer paid homage to the...
