Who do you have to be to get the likes of rock-god offspring Frances Bean Cobain, all-American sweetheart Mandy Moore and rap industry royalty Lil' Kim in the same (granted, very spacious) room? Marc Jacobs, I guess, who did just that — and, at the risk of sounding like a 60-second infomercial, more! — at his Fall 2017 runway show on Thursday. The designer has been known to assemble quite the epic front row crew season and season, tapping into his hefty rolodex of famous friends in the fashion, music, art and entertainment worlds. This time around, he included, among others, Cobain, Moore, Lil' Kim, Lottie Moss, Amanda Peet, Vic Mensa, Zosia Mamet, Sara Sampaio, Kiersey Clemons, Juno Temple, Sabrina Carpenter and Katy Perry. (There's a lovely little caveat here, though. Arranging his seating into one long line of folding chairs without rows made it so that everyone was in the front row. Aw.)

MARC JACOBS PAYS TRIBUTE TO HIP-HOP WITH FALL 2017 SHOW

For his fall-winter 2017 collection, Marc Jacobs found inspiration in hip-hop. After watching the documentary series, ‘Hip-Hop Evolution’, the American designer paid tribute to the genre with the latest season. The fall season spotlighted layered looks starting with roomy jackets worn over baggy trousers and sweaters. Jacobs’ fabric of choice was corduroy. From pants to jackets, the retro fabric cements the collection’s 80’s vibe. And when the Marc Jacobs woman wants to show some skin, there are thigh-high slip dresses or embroidered skirts. For footwear, platform shoes and sleek, calf high boots deliver. Finishing the look are backward baseball caps, cloche hats, beanies and gold chains made with artist Urs Fischer.

“As a born and bred New Yorker, it was during my time at the High School of Art and Design when I began to see and feel the influence of hip-hop on other music as well as art and style,” Jacobs says in the show notes. “This collection is my representation of the well-studied dressing up of casual sportswear. It is an acknowledgement and gesture of my respect for the polish and consideration applied to fashion from a generation that will forever be the foundation of youth culture street style.”

For the first time in three years, Marc Jacobs taps a solo star for his spring-summer 2017 campaign. Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, appears in the black and white advertisements. David Sims photographs 24-year-old in studio shots as well as on the city streets. While the spring runway show was inspired by 90’s ravers, the campaign shots channel grunge vibes.

Frances poses in embellished babydoll dresses, platform sandals as well as retro inspired frames. About starring in the new campaign, Frances says, “I’m representing what a general, standard, average
human girl would look like wearing these clothes. I think that’s why Marc picked me for this.”

Marc Jacobs Spring 2016 Collection Bags

In a collection that shut down New York Fashion Week with a dazzling bang, Marc Jacob reminded us once again that he never disappoints in the dramatics department. New York’s famed Ziegfeld Theatre set the scene for Marc’s trademark genius theatrics. This time he paid homage to American cinema, as well as Americana itself, and took the word “show” to full-blown proportions with a lengthy red carpet, cigarette girls, classic candy, and popcorn. The highly entertaining collection also seems to pay homage to the prolific work of the designer himself. With a retrospective mood, we were offered a helping of the best of Marc Jacobs all at once, including elements of old-school grunge, à la his early Perry Ellis era; sassy ’40s Hollywood-era glamour; shrunken military suits and varsity jackets; glam-rock platforms fit for Ziggy Stardust; sweeping dresses with high-shine luster, fit for other red carpets to come; and, of course, plenty of irreverence, from stars-and-stripes motifs to wacky screen prints.

It also marked the first time he combined the showing of little-sister label Marc by Marc with the main collection, and the result was a high-low mix that encourages us to counter our pricy bag with more accessibly-priced shoes. Speaking of bags, it also heralded what just might be the most excessive yet insanely fun bag collection I have ever seen from Marc Jacobs (and I’ve been a huge MJ whore since college!). The crossbodies and clutches snapped, crackled, and popped with as much pizazz as the twinkling red, white, and blue separates, but if anything, Marc is a man of intelligent dichotomy, and the “bones” of the bags remain as classic as they come. Crisp, clean lines, which could be likened to that of a beautifully constructed home, laid the ideal foundation for pieces to be adorned with sequins, charms, and patches galore.

Marigold-yellow python paired with Mickey Mouse and the Statue of Liberty? It somehow works flawlessly! So do kitschy pin adornments that bring to mind digging through Grandma’s old jewel box, while a traditionally structured rectangular shoulder bag gets outfitted in marching band-style piping and trim, and an elongated clutch receives the American flag treatment in sparkly sequins. Rather than buying stickers that could ultimately ruin the bag, Marc has done the work of accessorizing your accessory for you. His message is clear: More is more is more! And really, is there anything more richly American than excessive amounts of excess?
