One of my most favourite shows to wait-online-to-watch during NYFW are the Marc Jacobs’. Marc by Marc Jacobs for SS 2011 made their models hair big, poofy and frizzy. Ecstatic of this style, cannot wait for mornings where I do not have to be late to work as was trying to take out knots from my frizzy hair. Should have emulated Grace Coddington long ago. Her neat cottoncandy like natural hair which stays somehow intact in shape, is warming up to be a coveted do for the next year… Or maybe just for the Marc Jacobs girl.
The famous Bryanboy is currently at New York Fashion Week tweeting away his escapades from one front row to another. What was mind boggling (even for his standards) was the twitpic he posted of him in the SS 2011 collection Givenchy full look:
At first I thought he bought the look from Givenchy store, but why does it then have “look#24” and “Paris” on it?
Turns out it is the sample piece supermodel mariacarla boscono wore for the Givechy menswear SS 2011 show! BB got Paris connections!
The roads were more crowded than before. The venue (FNO India only happens in one mall – Emporio) was packed up. Anna Wintour’s memo had successfully reached off shores. People were seen carrying big shopping bags from Tod’s, Manish Arora and Gucci.
This time however, the shops were vary of the Indian customer and did not give as many freebies (no Burberry Ginger mojitos). The creativity was lacking and all store offered some discount as the FNO offer. Stores that did have something exciting to offer put up a ‘after purchase only’ premium on it (Salvatore Ferragamo Poker Table).
Hopefully, next year the designers will be challenged to do more creative and engaging activities for their brands.
