His collection was one of the last of the New York Fashion Week, but one of the best, FR. American designer Marc Jacobs this time his collection dedicated to hip-hop culture.
The collection ‘Respect’ was held in the center of Park Avenue Armory, but also in front of the cultural institutions – on the streets of New York, and his show is emphasized by the fact that there was no set design. Metal chairs served as a line for the catwalk, while in the background was unadorned interior center, and Marc Jacobs did not use any soundtrack. Due to the complete silence in which the models walked down the runway many guests did not even notice when the first model Slick Woods started down the runway in a beige corduroy jacket and a gold dress.
The inspiration for the new collection by Marc Jacobs is found in the documentary series ‘Hip-Hop Evolution’, which can be viewed on Netflix, and whose theme is hip-hop culture from the 70s to the 90s and follows the careers of rappers such as Afrika Bambaataa, Grandmaster Flash, Sugarhill Gang, Run DMC, NWA, Dr. Dre and many others, and explains the evolution of this musical genre.
Given the fact that the inspiration came from hip-hop culture, the new collection does not lack the references to the style of rappers like massive gold chains, as well as baseball, bucket and beanie cap. Line was dominated by comfortable tracksuit, plaid jackets, knit dresses, turtlenecks, hoodie shirts and corduroy pants, or pieces that reflect the retro style.
