Backstage at Marc Jacobs Spring 2016

Thursday September 17, 2015 – Ziegfeld Theater

Whether it was in Paris for Louis Vuitton, or in New York for his namesake brand, Marc Jacobs has always been apt to put in a good show. To present his Spring 2016 collection, the American designer chose NYC’s last single-screen and most iconic cinema, the Ziegfeld Theatre. 

“One Night Only Marc Jacobs #marcjacobspremiere” you could read on the theater marquee. As evening set, homeward-bound pedestrians took a break from their daily commute, crowding around the red carpet spectacle on 54th St., questioning passers by if there were any celebrities coming out of the circus-pattern tents. Inside the cinema, guests were greeted to some Marc Jacobs-themed popcorn and printed playbill on the cinema seats, as Brian Newman’s live orchestra band belted out soulful tunes.

But don’t get it twisted; this show was not about theatrics and over the top showmanship.

Back in March, it was announced that Marc by Marc Jacobs, the younger, more affordable line that came out 2001 would merge into his main brand.

Tonight’s show had a touch of lightness from the Marc by Marc Jacobs early years era, some inspiration from past collections but also some nods to Elsa Schiaparelli and Yves Saint Laurent.

“I have always found comfort in the familiar and the frequent return to the things that move me visually, emotionally and intellectually. It is an acknowledgment of moments past – now so digitally present – and a consideration of the innumerable moments captured in the Fleeting now.” Marc Jacobs

The show was a celebration of everything Americana, modernized and reworked “à la Jacobs“, glamorized, with a bit of grunge rock. There was some majorette boots, a bobcat sweater, sailor suit, plaid prints, varsity jackets, american pioneer country dresses worn over denim cut out shorts, sequins gowns and Pop artist’s silkscreens prints.

It was a spectacular mix of high and low, and just at every Marc Jacobs show, emotion and meaningfulness continued to take center stage.
