Marc Jacobs Spring Summer 2017 Womenswear Collection


Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs showcased his Spring Summer 2017 My Twisted Reality womenswear collection at Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan, closing this season’s New York Fashion Week. For bright and colorful SS17 collection, Marc collaborated with British artist and illustrator Julie Verhoeven, who created modern cartoon imagery used in landscape patch-working across all product categories. As always, Jacobs runway was filled with supermodels such as Adriana Lima, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Irina Shayk,Jamie Bochert, Jourdan Dunn, Julia Nobis, Karlie Kloss, Sara Sampaio, and the IT girls like Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid to name a few. In charge of styling was Katie Grand, with beauty work from hair stylist Guido Palau and makeup artist Francois Nars. Set design is work of Stefan Beckman, with casting direction from Anita Bitton.

“The collection, Marc’s interpretation of “twisted street wear,”features a wide range of looks built around a rising hemline. Denim is key, shown in bright colors with a velvety flocked and shiny satin effect. Cotton twill provides the base for camouflage printed military jackets and slim cargo pants. A silver leather motor jacket with fox fur sleeves, belted hot pink suede trench, rainbow washed sequin coat with mink collar, and a patch-worked suede ¾length coat round out a bold lightweight outwear offering. Mini dresses in embroidered sheer lace, iridescent sequins and metallic zebra prints and ruffled miniskirts show off playful embellished thigh-high socks. Hot pants in satin denim further emphasize the short silhouette, paired with strong shouldered embellished jackets. Artist Julie Verhoeven’s graphic illustrations cover a satin denim jacket via python and suede appliques as well as striped cashmere sweatshirts. Featuring modern iconography including hairdryers, electrical outlets, castles, frog, lips, rainbow colored teeth and a skyline of New York, the Marc Jacobs x Julie Verhoeven python shoulder bags, cotton twill backpacks and leather messenger bags perfectly compliment the feminine ready-to-wear. Exaggerated platforms provide the perfect pedestal once again, this time in colorful patch-worked thigh highs, trompe l’oeil athletic-sock boots and velvet sandals with metallic embroidery detail.” –  Marc Jacobs


Marc Jacobs doesn’t produce small runway shows. Whether presenting his eponymous line or a collection for French fashion house Louis Vuitton (which Jacobs helmed from 1997 to 2014), his events are always memorable. Today, the designer debuted the Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2017 collection in the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan, closing out New York Fashion Week as he does every year—and with stunning impact. Guests were treated to a display of 1,500 individual lightbulbs hanging from the ceiling and grease slicks on the floor, a dreamy yet gritty environment for the energetic, colorful collection. Just before the models—a star-studded lineup that included Adriana Lima, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid—took the runway for the finale walk, all of the bare bulbs flickered in rapid succession. The effect was reminiscent of Yayoi Kusuma’s twinkling infinity mirrored rooms, but the inspiration was actually derived from decidedly less precious locales: Old New York nightclubs. We spoke to Stefan Beckman, the man behind all of the brand’s recent shows, about what was on Jacobs’s mood board and how the latest event came to life.


READY for a rave at 2pm-sharp on a sunny New York afternoon? The answer to that question doesn’t really matter because Marc Jacobs gave us one anyway for the grand finale show of the week. Played out to a Nineties nostalgic soundtrack of Underworld’s Born Slippy (which would have resonated with front row attendees, Courtney Love, Rachel Feinstein and Terry Richardson, probably less likely, his girls on the runway – Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Jourdan Dunn, and Karlie Kloss), Jacobs transformed the Hammerstein Ballroom into a Blade Runner-inspired underground club night, asphalt stage set with puddles and some 1,500 dangling twinkling light bulbs.

It was a convincing techni-coloured line-up of girlish club looks; his girls, with hair piled up high into rainbow-coloured dreadlocks, stomped out atop giant Ziggy Stardust-seven-inch platform boots dressed in skinny-sleeved silver snakeskin coats, day-glo rugby shirts, satin hotpants, negligees, stripy hooded sweatshirts, micro suede skirts, camo and shrunken Seventies jackets and every other bit of kit spotted on a 20-something during the mid-Nineties. Dissected, or worn loaded up all at once, it was kooky and cute and everything a girl could want from Jacobs’s oeuvre.


If there’s one big takeaway from New York Fashion Week, it’s the designers’ instinct to boost the collective American spirit. This election cycle hasn’t been one of uplift—doom is more like it. In response, some designers have opted for sunny brights and flowers. Others have turned to show tunes. Marc Jacobs organized a rave. If things do end up going to hell in a handbasket, we might as well all go out for one last, big rager, right? At least that was what the Marc Jacobs set up felt like at the Hammerstein Ballroom, where Stefan Beckman built an elevated, grease-slicked stage and above it strung thousands of little lights.
Jacobs’s models sported candy-colored dreadlocks and platforms that seemed even higher than the ones he sent out last Fall; from dreads to toe, they must’ve topped 7 feet. In between, there was sparkle, satin, and snakeskin, along with doses of chilled-out denim and camouflage. He merged his lower-priced Marc by Marc Jacobs range with his main line little more than a year ago, and since then there’s been quite a spread between the haute stuff and the more commercially minded jeans and army jackets. Inevitably, the finer pieces were more compelling today: mod, fur-collared, A-line coats in metallic lamé or rainbow-patterned holographic sequins; a crocheted cardigan sprouting feathers at the shoulders; Kiki Willems’s show-opening metallic doublet jacket.

Here’s the thing about being a noted summer-hater: You can’t live in black dresses alone. Sure, they reflect your general grumpiness over this incessant heat and humidity. But there’s a difference between having a uniform and falling into a rut. Sandals can only do so much, and that pool of sweat on your lower back means you can’t exactly start buying and wearing fall clothes. Which is where a good bag comes in. The joy of buying a new tote or crossbody now is you can wear it immediately, even in the crushing heat. It’s all of the freshness of fall, without the heaviness. Take these Marc Jacobs styles — the shape is one of the brand’s classics, but now it comes in calf hair and a sparkly leather. Use it to give that extra something to your black slip dress and flat sandals. And when the weather finally, blissfully cools, it’ll add texture to your fall outfits. Marc-Jacobs-Snapshot-Bag An All-American girl will find Marc Jacobs Snapshot small leather shoulder bag as the perfect complement to her over-all ensemble. Filled with the right amount of colors of red, white and blue, and is completed with the stars and stripes design on its strap, one will definitely feel a cow girl effect while wearing this bag as you strut your stuff down the road, street or alley. Be extra trendy without getting too flashy with this camera-style shoulder bag from the house of Marc Jacobs. Pair this uber cute shoulder bag with your denim dress, or that extra chic denim jumper while sporting a messy bun. This structured style bag features the embossed signature logo to the top and in gold-ton effect to the front. Aside from this, it also has the following features: a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap, back slot pocket, two zipped compartments, Polyurethane-coated cow leather, and it has fabric lining, internal slot pocket. It has the following dimensions: 10.5 x 18 x 6 cm (H x W x D), priced at $374 USD or €320 euro.

Louis Vuitton + Marc Newson Rolling Luggages Collection

Categories:Louis Vuitton


If you’re a fan of Louis Vuitton (who isn’t these days, especially with what Kim Jones has done for the mens collection in recent years) and design wunderkind Marc Newson, here’s a new collection from the French luxury house that will get you excited for sure.

In collaboration with Marc Newson, Louis Vuitton has launched a new collection ofRolling Luggages that aims to meet the needs of today’s 21st century traveller. Featuring 3 important innovations that every frequent flyer will appreciate, it a) is made up of an ultra-thin titanium layer bonded to the polypropylene composite shell that makes it super lightweight, b) comes with an external full-width extendable cane (handle) with a simple zip puller closing system and c) is the very first of all Louis Vuitton luggages today to have four wheels, In other words, it’s light, it’s easy to use and most importantly, it will be easier to manoeuver as well, which should cut time spent from the time you disembark the plane to getting into your car by at least a third.

Available in 2 sizes, a Mini50 and a Cabin55 (because God forbid you check in something as gorgeous and as precious as this), this would be the luggage you use for a short two-day trip (use the Mini 50) or go for the maximum allowed onto any airline (the Cabin 55).


Now for the best part. The Rolling Luggages will come in at least 6 different finishes, which means after you’ve decided on the size, you’ll have to choose from between the following: Monogram Canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Epi (a virtual rainbow of choices here), Taiga and something called VVN, which is basically Vuitton’s vachetta leather wrapped around the entire luggage and one that will patina beautifully over time.


Priced from SGD3650 all the way to SGD8100 depending on finish and size, here’s another bit of information that will please all of you in Singapore. Whilst the rest of South Asia will only get this new collection sometime in end-September, we can all buy it now at Louis Vuitton boutiques across the island, from Marina Bay Sands to Ngee Ann City and ION Orchard.

So what do I have my eye on? Right now it’s the Cabin55 in either Monogram Canvas orMonogram Eclipse, which are also the only ones (along with Damier Graphite) that can be personalised with your initials with LV’s Mon Monogram service. How not to #LVOE?

Now read carefully about what we’re going to share, it’s as important as eating your breakfast before work. And after you read it, it’s like finding a $100 dollar bill or discovering an-only-today 75% off on-everything at your favorite shopping mall.

You know how much ‘we’ (yes, you and I) love quilted handbags. At our PS Quilted Mini PS11 handbag, we explained that there is magic in ‘quilted’, it just looks so luxurious, feminine and worth our investment. Though the PS11 was not entirely quilted, to be honest only its front flap, but we have found a handbag that is. It’s the Marc Jacobs All In One Quilted Shoulder Bag, but there is more…

First, it’s in black. Black and quilted are the perfect partners to spurt words out like classic and timeless. It got diamond patterns from the front to the back. Then it’s refined with golden hardware, what glamorous! But the gold is not like exaggerated glittering, but it got a touch of vintage, as well as the bag. It looks a bit like used, but that’s the style right?

Here’s why it’s called the ‘All In One’ Bag, listen carefully. It got:

– Two internal compartments
– Zippered center pocket
– Slot pocket
– 8 credit card slots on the front and even on the back wall

It’s an everyday handbag that’s made with structured interior and a lot of space.

Crafted from goat leather, a material that’s smooth and durable. The shoulder strap is detachable, measuring 7.25’ x 9’ x 1.25’ (H x W x D).
