The End of NYFW AW12

After what seemed like a flurry of shows barely hastened and all equally austere, Marc Jacobs turned to shapes that some found rather unflattering. The truth is, no one can really tell if they are or not. There is a certain air of elegance when there is a large brimmed luxuriantly furred hat upon your head, and you’re wearing the captain’s shoes.

The show was, in fact, mocking- mocking fashion, elegance and maturity. When Marc Jacobs put out a collection of seemingly old patterned materials which look far too outdated for the catwalks of 2012, the crown talked. He brought out fur hats which looked more appropriate on the head of the Mad Hatter rather than on the pretty young models, and the crowd talked not of the taste, but the message that people got from the show.
