As is customary, the last day of NYFW festivities featured the Marc Jacobs runway show; with the designer debuting looks at the Hammerstein Ballroom that were "a mix of raver and Harajuku schoolgirl, with a hint of royalty."

However before the Yayoi Kusama-inspired lightbulb setting cooled, the show came under fire for its use of fake dreadlocks — spun out of wool and hand-dyed, styled by Guido Palau.

Marc Jacobs has most certainly stirred up a pot of his favourite motifs: cheeky sweaters, unforgivingly high shoes, kooky styling and wearable ready-to-wear mixed in with over-the-top looks and exaggerated silhouettes. Bombers shrunk, and so did printed, patterned and sequinned dresses. Meanwhile, sweaters got long, jeans-like pants got skintight. Animal prints, camo, rugby stripes, girly intarsia knits and over-the-knee socks were worn by girls who looked like characters in in a Jacobs dream—where Marie Antoinette, club rats, '80s cartoons and emojis frolic. As with any Jacobs collection, it can usually be boiled down to cool, covetable clothes. 

Velvet and brocade party dresses and leather boots with lemon emojis will speak to the millennial set. Sure it was crazy, but when NYFW sticks to the norm, Jacobs brings the fun, the zany, the irreverent. There will always be girls (and boys) who would happily slip into a pair of those Ziggy Stardust boots.
