Marc Jacobs Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear #NYFW

"The clothes lived up to the advance billing. From the relatively quiet start of Erin O'Connor's almost-black checked sheath with four wide bands of bugle beads below the waist, the collection built and built. It touched on metallic brocades and leopard print, chevroned mink, grommeted leather, nailhead studded silk, and embroideries that looked like digitized and pixelated portraits of the eccentric Vreeland. 'She was a genius,' Jacobs said of the legendary Vogue editor backstage. 'She got the whole fashion thing: being decisive, being so excitable, and then being as passionate and dismissive about the very same thing the next day.' Jacobs read her Memos book while he was working on the Fall collection; the surprise is that he hasn't made a muse of Vreeland before. 'I felt like that's what fashion is' he continued, 'that complete addiction, obsession, that I've-got-to-have-it need until I basically wouldn't be caught dead in it." -
