SPRING 2017 NYFW SNEAK PEEKS: DAY EIGHT

The eighth and final day of NYFW’s Spring 2017 season was a special day for me, because I got to live out a dream. The dream of finally attending a Marc Jacobs show.

Thanks to my collaboration with Tumblr, I was invited to the show, and was able to photograph some of it from up in the balcony. For those of you who did not know before– I was a member of Tumblr’s SS17 NYFW team, and was sent to photograph many shows on their behalf. (You can read the official announcement here.)

But without further ado, here are my favorite photos from the Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2017 show, which completely blew me away with its beauty:

OSCAR DE LA RENTA FALL/WINTER 2015

OSCAR DE LA RENTA Fall-Winter 2015 046

Fall 2015 marked the first show for the Oscar de la Renta brand, since the loss of it’s beloved namesake last October.

A veil of secrecy hung around the premiere of new Creative Director Peter Copping’s runway debut. No backstage access was granted this season, security was tighter, and the venue itself was darker, making the whole thing feel shrouded in mystery.

Oscar’s absence was like a hole in the room. Gone was the light, Joie de vivre most usually found at ODLR shows. But all was not lost: replacing it was a new sense of maturity, sexiness, and glamour, that made me feel more as if I was at a show somewhere like Milan, and not New York. Shiny, and new. Different.

Yet while things were drastically changed from seasons past, they were not bad. Reminders of Oscar staples were everywhere. Suit jackets, the big gowns, floral prints, and impeccable accessories.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Backstage

Marc by Marc Jacobs S-S 2015 NYFW 001

Backstage at the S/S 2015 Marc by Marc Jacobs show, it seemed as if I was transported back to my high school years in the late 1990’s. With makeup inspired by (the original 1980’s) English Rave scene, and hair by 90’s era Bjork, it’s no wonder why!

Redken’s Guido chose Bjorks’s signature hair knots, redone in a mohawk type style, to transform the models into “tough girls” for the show.

Redken’s Wind Blown 05 was used to add texture to hair. Next, said Guido “I started by taking the hair into four horizontal sections and bringing them into little ponytails at the top of the crown, twisting them down, leaving some ends out and then pinning them with fine pins. Nothing is perfect. The part isn’t perfect, so you get kind of a punky feeling.”

RACHEL ANTONOFF S/S 2013

RACHEL ANTONOFF S-S 2013 016

I’ve been a longtime fan of Rachel Antonoff‘s designs. In fact, her first presentation was the very first fashion show I ever covered for this blog! So it makes me happy to see that she is finally getting the recognition and publicity she deserves.

One of the things taking her career to the next level: her collaboration with Bass Shoes. Full disclosure: I am ADDICTED to these shoes. Not only are they comfortable, but the designs –especially of her oxfords– are unparalleled in cuteness, and comfort at their price point. I own multiple pairs, and whenever I wear my black & clear oxfords, in particular, I have strangers stopping me on the street to ask about them.

When I stopped by backstage before Rachel’s show, the first thing I noticed wasn’t the hair, makeup, or clothes– it was the new shoes. I am so excited to say that there are more clear shoes on the way!

LOUISE GOLDIN S/S 2013:

LOUISE GOLDIN S-S 2013 034

Rekden Creative Consultant Guido is known for inventing some of the most edgy, trendsetting, and beautiful fashion week looks at fashion shows worldwide. Alexander McQueen and Marc Jacobs are just two of the major brands that regularly showcase his genius.

The Spring 2013 Louise Goldin show featured one of the most unusual hair styles of the week. Guido described the look as “manga/cartoony, slightly spooky” “Sleepy Hollow” inspired”, and “slightly gothic”.

“We’re always speaking so much about wearable styles, but we have to remember that fashion after all is also an art – and this look is all fantasy.I really saturated the hair in product, let it dry and then pulled out the left front section of the ponytail and pulled it across the face and eyes. I think of emerging branches, or like a mask of hair over the face that has a very haunted, ‘spinderly’, maybe even Tim Burton-esque feeling. These certainly are not sweet little girls.” -Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Sunday Riley lead artist Diane Kendal helped models achieve perfect skin, and crafted an intense red lip backstage at the Victoria Beckham fw12 show. To prep skin, Juno Serum was applied to the face. Followed by Tinted Primer to create a natural, dewy skin tone. Sunday Riley Lipstick in Persuasive, lightly topped off using orange blush, combined to create the show-stopping lip tint.

REDKEN Creative Consultant Guido created an incredibly sleek, shiny, and bluntly cut hairstyle, which was at once both minimalist and edgy, to compliment the collection.

To get the look:
1. Start with hair trimmed very straight with a blunt finish. Add Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-dry Lotion to protect and soften hair, and blow-dry.
2. Create a deep side part and flat iron hair until perfectly straight.
3. Add a generous amount of Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist for a glossy finish, and tuck hair behind the ears.
4. Use a drop of Hardwear 16 gel to slick down the front of the style for an extra wet finish and added texture. — info via REDKEN

So straight!

To round out the final aspect of the shows backstage beauty, CND lead nail tech Roxanne Valinoti created the “perfect neutral” (worn by Victoria herself at the show).

Victoria, who was involved in every detail of the nail art, wanted a luxe, polished color for her models’ fingers. The resulting color, made by painting on Putty (sheer nude), layered with a coating of Marshmallow Rose (semi-sheer pink).
