Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs looked to none other than his own designs as reference for Spring 2020: those he showed 18 years ago on the night before 9/11 on Pier 54 in NYC. His show in 2019 took place at the Park Avenue Armory, “This show, like that show (2001) is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams...” read the show notes. So let’s go back in time to a post-90s moment of exuberance. There were feathers and sequins on Kaia Gerber, Gigi and Bella Hadid, as well as bold suits, hats, flower embossed coats, tweedy jackets. In other words a hodgepodge of fashion as frivolity with a nod to icons past like Anita Pallenberg and Lee Radziwill. It sure is a good time, but does it align with our time? —Kerry Pieri

Marina Moscone
Moscone has been a bit of a fashion insider secret, but that’s not going to last for long. The designer brought an audience to a Gramercy Park mansion to a show a ‘90s meets ‘60s collection that was nothing short of a winner. Inspired by the book Ninth Street Women, about female post war artists that changed the world, from Lee Krasner to Elaine de Kooning—women who may have been partners to famous male artists but artists in their own right. With screenplays on each seat and oil paintings hung in the pre-war space, it was a magical set-up for sleek, minimal clothes that leverage artful layering, some interesting prints, florals, and a deft melding of masculine and feminine. In other words, thoroughly modern with an appreciation for the past.
