TWIGGY (my personal favorite on NYFW Sping 2013 : MARC JACOBS)

Mod Squad Finale @ Marc Jacobs Spring 2013
Just when you thought Marc gonna do things, he blown you away with something more unique and unexpected. The last two season-Spring and Fall 2012-he went glamour and uber sexy, but this time he keep it simple yet show you FASHION.

The influence of 60's is really strong-"twiggy-esque" hair for the model, and the mod style. Jacobs was arrowing back to the Factory, the icy pinnacle of New York cool where Edie reigned as the archetypal It girl, and the monochrome, amphetamine-sharp brilliance of the designer's vision cut a precise swathe through all the uncertain murk that swirls around pop culture right now.

The collection consists of T-shirt, coat, slip, skirt, suit, bra, etc., etc., etc. No embellishment needed. Jacobs distilled a radical moment of transition in style, between the suited young ladies of the early sixties and the free spirits of the later part of the decade, passing from preppy-proper to pilled-out style icon in her patent leather and leopard spots, petaled hems and smudgy mascara-ed eyes. And stripes. So many stripes, parallel lines, black and white and sequined, like Lou Reed lyrics coming to life.

From left to right: 
  1. Alexander Wang--The wonderboy strikes again! This time, he experiment with fabric and volumes. As usual his designs are really edgy, yet it still shows some femininity-like in the dresses with skin-color lining. He also make a statement by made the fabric glow in the dark shown at the finale-which is why he didn't allow any guests to take pictures with flash light. Overall I think he did a tremendous job. 
  2. Rodarte--Inspired by 'The Game Of Thrones', Mulleavys sisters gave their own take on medieval time clothes-like a marine blue silk gown with marquetry embroidery cinching its middle. There are also a couple of looks that inspired by the hardness of hauberk. What makes this a great collection, is because they don't take it too over the nose. It still looks modern. 
  3. Altuzarra--Classic women with a twist. That's what his designs are. His fabrics deserve a mention, too: railroad stripes like the OshKosh overalls you wore as a kid (one of the week's burgeoning trends), and a brown the exact same shade of clay that Carhartt uses. And the jackets are really interesting. Instead of wear it with the sleeves, he made it more like a cape. What bothers me is the gladiators. I feel like it's too over the top. But overall his designs are magnificent.
  4. Jason Wu--I'm shocked. Seriously, I am! I can't believe that this is the same Jason Wu that made the white dress for Michelle Obama. His designs which usually are sweet and clean has changed with this bare, dark collection. Bralet, mostly nude and black collection with leather harnesses, and black net veils are things that he poured it on. 
  5. Prabal Gurung--Inspired by Anish Kapoor's works (google him!) and traditional kurtas that his mother and sister wear at home in Nepal, Gurung made an-almost-androgynous collection. Asymmetric tailcoat and trousers and wispy, kurtalike chiffon tunic had a fresh feel. But there are also a handful of dresses with Gurung's touch.
