Marc Jacobs New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2020 Dance Fashion Catwalk

Marc Jacobs never fails to cap off New York Fashion Week with a bang, and this collection was no exception. The show at the Park Avenue Armory began with a performance from dancer and choreographer Karole Armitage, which ushered in a crew of dancers in Marc-designed bras and hot pants or skirt sets. Then Jacobs went back to basics, literally. A collection more evocative of old school Marc—mod moments like simple A-line coats and mini shift dresses—walked the runway.

Miley Cyrus joined the ranks later on in the show with a simple black bra and trouser, and there were pops of statement dressing inspired by American fashion icons, like Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn, who was interpreted in a sultry Breakfast at Tiffany’s version by Bella Hadid for an evening look. It seems that between artfully crafted eveningwear and easy options for day, Jacobs fans both old and new will have much to covet come Fall.

Jacobs’ chosen performance medium to showcase his fall collection was dance, but in a refreshing take, it wasn’t about showcasing ballet flats and tulle. Instead, the designer enlisted renowned choreographer Karole Armitage to craft an entrancing contemporary performance that walked (or, rather, danced) the line between artistry and the everyday. Around 50 dancers joined the 88 models. The dance and fashion components fed off each other and crafted an experience that truly embodied the Fall 2020 show title, Chaos + Form. Jacobs went for simple, timeless shapes with this season’s clothing, with highlights including monochrome ensembles, expertly tailored coats, and nostalgic yet modern eveningwear.
