Marc Jacob's Gothic, black magic and exaggerated silhouettes -NYFW AW16
New York- It's not regular and on the leak, Marc Jacob has something different in his mind. Spectators felt its return of the Dracula, or evil's night as gigantic overcoats, high heel platform black boots and models with black lips created something whimsical. “I felt things I’ve never felt before.” “They should put him at Dior.” Two sentiments heard while exiting Marc Jacobs’ extraordinary show on Thursday night.
Darkness ruled the show, from the black purse, black boots to black lips and nail popish, Victorian collars, denim, and lacy full skirts, pussy bow necklines, long, traditionally tailored, embroidered coats and some of the more covered-up evening wear were the key items of the show. The clothes were dark, wondrous, inventive, eccentric pilings of tweeds, furs, silks, and endless decoration, Victorian style meets Goth meets Biker Chic meets Varsity Chic meets Red Carpet meets Violet Incredible and countless other girls of Jacobs’ runways past. Cats, rats, cherubs, and ballerinas got acquainted on prints, a giant raven took up residence on the back of a jacket and a lady named Gaga walked the show.
The show is all about merger of Victorian era fashion into gothic styling and colors with everything exaggertaed and voluminous
