Marc Jacobs scaled back his show this NYWF. Instead of the usual 60 looks, the designer only showed 40. And likewise, the crowd was more thinned out, in order to create a more intimate show for the viewers. The runway was dark and reflective, furthering the exclusivity of those in attendance; photographs of the models look as if they are emerging well-dressed from a blackhole. In turn allowing outfits to stand on their own for the length of the runway. “Each [look] will be an exaggeration of our view of who each of the women is, for lack of a better word, it’s like a cabine of women we love," Jacobs told WWD.

Oversized leopard print coats, tweed, ballgown dresses and feathers were featured. Lots and lots of feathers. Models were embellished with flapper-esque feather headpieces, crowns and single feathers protruding out of beanies. But it was the feathered dresses- more specifically Christy Turlington's that deserved all the attention it has received. Coming out of retirement because "Why the F not" was a decision the 90s supermodel made because she recently turned 50. Also, for her teenage daughter. "I have a 15 year old daughter who I desperately want to see and hear me and this is a medium that “speaks”to her. So, thank you’s are in order, @karliekloss @gigihadid and @kaiagerber and all the lovely young women I have met briefly in the recent past or met tonight. You are ALL women I would want my daughter to emulate in your grace, confidence and elegance," Turlington wrote in an Instagram post. Here's to hoping she keeps this mindset for future fashion weeks to come.
