Marc Jacobs is a maestro at capturing the spirit of youth, and he launched a collection oozing color, exaggerated shapes, and bold makeup and hair with unspeakable panache. If someone asked Jacobs what he did for a living, the most fitting response would be “revivalist/hitmaker/futurist.” Somehow this man manages to reintroduce past styles, mainly the 1980s, but breathe fresh life into them so that they are forward-looking; he’s a hitmaker because I find it hard to not love him, the energy he evokes, and the promise he holds before a collection debuts and the succeeding affirmation it (tends) to deliver. Never boring and never a lesson lifted from a fashion history text, the models wowed to the sounds of Katastrophe and Spinnerette
