MARC JACOBS’ Dark Past

Thursday night’s torrential downpour added a fitting layer of gloom to the already dark, dystopic scene at the MARC JACOBS spring 2014 show. Clad in ornate, Victorian-esque dresses and upholstery coats, models stormed across glittering black sand, past deserted beach chairs, a broken-down bus and a crumbling boardwalk. Each look was loaded with intricate details: appliqué, embroidery, tassels, brocade—you name it, Jacobs worked it in. This resulted in the polar opposite of his spring 2013 collection, which focused on simple, mod factory-girl pieces. But Jacobs has never been the predictable type—and that’s exactly why we love him.

    I can not believe NYFW is over! I miss it already! But I sincerely thank each member of the Nordstrom Team for the fantastic coverage of the backstage scenes, the runways, designer interviews, street style photos, and Jeff’s picks for how to get “the look”. It has been beyond fun! I hope you all had uneventful trips to London and I await your brilliant work from that fashionable city. I am a devoted fan. 🙂
