New York Fashion Week A/W 2010: Marc Jacobs
Online interaction played a significant role in the creation of Marc Jacobs's A/W 2010 presentation. Not only did his business partner, Robert Duffy, hop on Twitter a few weeks ago to ask for suggestions on how to open the show, Jacobs was able to reach a global audience via streaming his show live. Both Duffy and Jacobs appeared at the beginning of the show to rip away a curtain of brown paper which housed a block of 56 models ready to take to the runway.
The collection itself - a blend of furry lambswool coats, three-piece check suits, floor-skimming shimmery gowns, and demure long skirts - was a bit of a trip down memory lane, with echoes of previous collections filtering through on a palette of neutral tones. "It's refreshing to see something that isn't trying so hard to be new," he said.
