The last day of New York Fashion Week went out with a bang.
According to some sources the penultimate show of fashion week, Marc Jacobs, was a regular "dramafest". Indeed, it seemed like every fashion aficionado's dream: the clothes were larger than life, the hair styles were OTT and there was even a whisper of some off-catwalk drama. Naturally, we've got a couple of questions. Not so much questions, as talking points. Here's our thoughts:
1. The Hair
How did they manage to die the hair of 37 models pre-show? Speaking of the array of models with freshly-dyed, sorbet-hued hair, Redkin Global Colour Creative Director Josh Wood told Elle it was “the biggest colour project I’ve ever worked on”. "I've never done anything with this many girls who are willing to colour their hair so it's a very proud moment for me."
2. The Patent Coat
How is a patent yellow jacket – which on paper should make no sense – actually quite desirable? And shall I look like Kaia Gerber when I wear it? (Hush, I think I already know the answer to that one.)
3. The Colours
Do we want to spend all next season dressed like a gelato cone? Apparently so, according to Jacobs.
4. The Tudor References
Is Mary, Queen of Scots next spring’s sartorial reference point? At this time it’s best to reference one of life’s touchstones of wisdom, Sex and the City’s Charlotte York, who once famously summarised an ill-advised funeral bouquet as, “You’re dead, let’s disco!”
5. Anna Winter's Apparent Exit
This is where the rumoured scandal happened. According to The Cut, "Legend has it that years ago, Marc Jacobs made Anna Wintour wait over an hour, maybe even two. She walked out of his show at New York Fashion Week, and the designer never ran late again. Not even by a minute." However, it seemed Jacobs was up to his old tricks, with last night's show apparently running an hour and a half behind schedule. Fashion PRs waited with baited breath as Wintour began making laps of the venue and answering emails, however – thankfully for Jacobs – she took her seat when the lights dimmed.
