About that... I am not one of those bloggers that are here through shade or spread tea. BUT the Marc Jacobs Fall 2020 show gave me chills... In the worst way possible.
I would like to start this one by getting straight to the point. I think it was a funny public art piece. I say it was in the art piece not in the sense that the work was so beautiful that I would consider the presentation art. What I mean by that is I feel like it was not a fashion show. It was just a show...
Don't get me wrong, there is no denying Marc Jacobs genius. As an artist and an upcoming designer myself. I have so much respect for him, especially what he was able to do for Louis Vuitton. That is exactly the impact I hope to have on the fashion world, completely changing it from the top. BUT THIS SHOW... Oh, this show. I think the show didn't have any fashion, it was good becuase of the work he was able to. Embodies the idea that fashion recycles itself, his collection is exactly that. I feel like everything was very retro.
Here is the problem with that though. His collection though in line with the trends was overall very boring and bland. It feels like he focuses more on the theatricals and overwhelming people, that he failed to deliver when it came to the clothes. There was nothing new and innovative everything looked like things that we have seen before, and not even in reference to timeline.
It left me wondering "exactly what was the point of your collection" I find it really interesting that articles like Vogue failed to mention that lacklustre. It feels as though he knew that he couldn't deliver a strong collection so he tried distracting everyone with the show itself. I know if I was there I would have been so overwhelmed I wouldn't have known where to look not to mention what the outfits look like.
