So, can we talk about how Marc Jacobs is going to be in a movie? Not another documentary, but an actual feature film called “Disconnect.” It appears to be a thriller revolving around several couples in which there are secrets threatening to tear them apart. As Marc Jacobs’ first film appearance, there is a lot of pressure on his performance and the above trailer is definitely promising.
So, he is the face of Diet Coke and a movie star. Anything else you want to do, Marc?
The weather here in New York is in a constant state of change. What to wear when one hour it is warm, the next hour is cold, and then it rains? I settled for a simple pairing of a button down and a light sweater. That way when it warms up I can just take off my coat and be comfortable.
This show marks this middle east-based design house’s second time showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The overall feel is always “the Middle East meets the Upper East Side.” This season, the designers used their own country, the Kingdom of Bahrain, as their source of inspiration. “A small island kingdom in the Arabian Gulf was the starting point for the Fall/Winter 2013 collection, with the natural flora and fauna of the designers’ homeland playing an integral role,” states the accompanying information page with the run of show. Highly masculine and structured skirts and pantsuits made their way down the runway. Then “ultra feminine gowns” came down the runway that juxtaposes the strong silhouettes that came down first.
Ruffian took us to the Bowery for their Fall/Winter 2013 collection. “It’s history for vice and entertainment, theatre, saloons, and opium dens juxtaposed with its current street savvy constituency made for a fertile playground that inspired our rich textiles, opulent embroidery, English tailoring, and soft ethereal silhouettes,” the brand says about their inspiration. The looks were every-changing. First feminine, then very masculine and then a hint of old English as a corset had been added over a pantsuit look. Cropped jackets pants were out in full as well. The Ruffian boys always played with a lot of geometric prints this seasons. Additionally, a western saloon-esque look was easily upgraded to look modern by the addition of peplum to accentuate the waist.
