Up early again and back to Lincoln Center for 2 shows this morning. Lots of leather & fur at the Norisol Ferrari presentation (this was a reoccurring theme all week) & color, color, color at JCrew.
Take a look . . .
A quick tea break in the Fashion Week Lounge before heading out into the cold leads to sharing a table with editors heading off to London & Milan. Glamorous — this is the place to eavesdrop!
With a couple of hours to kill before the Marc by Marc Jacobs show we decided to head to Bleeker Street and see what’s changed since our last visit.
Marc has taken-over (more so). His new corner shop BookMarc is stuffed with the classics — old and new, plus lots of the quirky gift items he is known for.
Then across the street to Magnolia Bakery for a special holiday cupcake. The bakery was decked out but I opted for my favorite — vanilla buttercream. The original is still delicious!
Into the Karl Lagerfeld pop up shop where the 3 gents working the store sported a Karl pin in their own signature style. The totes, decals, and toys all with the Lagerfeld profile steal the show.
Past VSF (Very Special Flowers) — bursting with flowers on this day. The gentlemen inside are old hands — working with such ease.
. . . and finally a counter seat at Marys Fish Camp– cozy and delicious!
Time to head to the Armory for the 4:00 Marc by Marc Jacobs show. 26th street is wall to wall town cars — the entrance on Lexington is wall to wall photographers. Inside it’s a full house, including the youngest front row attendee I’ve ever seen — what a moment!
This is what we saw . . . girls with low, not too perfect ponytails and bright lips. Boys with faux hawks and conductor hats or as Marc calls them “Drum Hats”. What a mixture of prints, patterns and textures! Watch a little snippet and feel the energy . . .
