Marc Jacobs returned to the runway yesterday after a two season hiatus with a collection that prioritized comfort and functionality while being bold and outlandish. I loved it. Oversized utilitarian knits, ridiculously chunky shoes, puffer ballgowns and a palette of high wattage hues. Even more, I loved the statement that accompanied his return: “On the journey back to doing what we love most, in the wake of immeasurable loss, loneliness, fear, anxiety and uncertainty, I am reminded of why creativity is so vital to our existence. To life. Our decision to pause allowed us to slow down, reflect, ruminate, reevaluate, grieve and take a thorough inventory of what works, what doesn’t work, what we love, what we are willing to let go of and what has value, importance and meaning. Creating a collection requires enormous effort over many months from our small group of extraordinarily talented and dedicated individuals. We find purpose in the work from and for periodic but powerful transcendent moments of joy. And while the world continues to change with unimaginable speed, my love for fashion, the desire to create and share collections through this delivery system – THE RUNWAY – endures. Through the physicality of this shared experience, I hope to offer a moment of inspiration, curiosity, wonder and possibility.”
