Still, the Marc Jacobs woman is certainly not everywoman, affirming her individuality, like singer Miley Cyrus, who strode the catwalk with determination, trailing a zebra print coat. There were discreet fitted black and white dresses, joined by yellow and bright pink jackets.
Contrast and variety figured at the heart of the show, embodied by staging created in collaboration with choreographer and dancer Karole Armitage. The staid procession of the models was accompanied by the abrupt, even brutal gestures of the dance troop. Chaos and structure flowed together in amazing harmony, just like daily life in New York.
In his collaboration with Karole Armitage, Marc Jacobs brought the cultural influences of today into conversation with a past New York that he continues to honor with each new season.
