Saks at the Shows: Marc Jacobs Spring / Summer 2015

Marc Jacobs once again delivered a collection that was at once not of this world and highly-desirable.

Before arriving to a Marc Jacobs show, the mind starts reeling with all the fashion and showmanship possibilities. He’s New York’s master of the volte face. The only thing you ever really know for sure is to expect the unexpected.

The Saks POV of Show-Opener Joan Smalls

This season, the Park Avenue Armory was transformed once again, this time with a giant fluorescent pink house sitting right smack in the middle of the set, with lilac landscaping rocks strewn around its entire periphery.

A Glimpse of the Candy-Pink Marc Jacobs Set at the Park Avenue Armory

Guests sat on risers that were covered in pink shag carpeting, a set of Beats by Dre headphones at every seat (hello Apple!). The shownotes – no backstory and bare as can be. Joan: Dress. Saskia: Dress. Kendall: Dress. You figure it out. Which seemed to be the point of the headphones. Everyone had a different version of the soundtrack playing through the Beats by Dre. This was a moment to provide everyone with their own particular immersive experience.

Team Saks at the Shows: Yumi Shin, Katherine Rewey-Sexton and Lincoln Moore Enjoying the Show

Much like the Polo Ralph Lauren show in Central Park earlier in the week, this was another way that the Fashion Week calendar is stretching the parameters of what the fashion show can do. As this was an invitation to have one’s own experience and to make of it what you will – we saw a utilitarian future. That may sound strict, but this wasn’t. It was ultimately feminine, but it came with a dark underlining. The set played a decent part in that, but not completely.

The main embellishment of the show, circular orbs that looked like something out of the mind of H.R. Giger, were beautiful and mystifying in equal measure. There was an other-wordly quality there, and when the girls walked away from the big pink house, they were framed by nothing but pure darkness, as if they were floating in an endless void. Drama in spades.

Model Heather Marks Makes Her Return to the Runway

In a collection replete with cargo pockets, gaberdines, jumpsuits and fatigue green, the running message felt, not army-like, but more like grown-up Girls Scouts in an alternate dimension. Like when one’s dreams are made up of disparate parts of one’s subconscious, but it all makes sense in the moment. What a mix. What a dream.
