Marc Jacobs Fall 2017

No music. No set. No frills. Behold Marc Jacobs' very own hip-hop evolution
Reading time 53 seconds

In the glitz, glam, and excessive showmanship that typically define every Fashion Week, Marc Jacobs dared to be different. No music. No set. No frills – just a runway show stripped down to the bare essentials. 

Citing documentary series Hip-Hop Evolution as his inspiration, the designer presented a striking collection that is his "representation of the well-studied dressing up of casual sportswear." Fur-collared coats interspersed with slouchy sweaters and track pants dominated the runway in a warm neutral palette of camel, ginger, gold, and maroon. In an ode to the early hip-hop cultural movement, accessories were aplenty: Andre 3000-style hats by milliner Stephen Jones, chunky platform boots, and of course, bling – plenty of bling in the form of gilded mice pendants swinging from heavy gold chains.
