Marc Jacobs has dished up a joyful yet nostalgic collection for spring/summer 2020.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, with celebrity guests including Zendaya, Law Roach, Debi Mazar, Anwar Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Migos’ Offset and Quavo.

Regarding the inspiration behind the spectacle, Jacobs commented that he wanted to reflect on the past whilst also presenting an optimistic view of the future.

“This show is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams and a future unwritten as we continue to learn from our past and the history of fashion,” he shared in the show notes, before going on to refer to major stars who passed away in the recent years who have influenced him. “From the genius of Karl (Lagerfeld), the cheerful and bright-eyed positivity of Doris Day, the incomparable timeless style of Lee Radziwill and the effortless coolness of Anita Pallenberg that endures a half-century later… As with closely guarded tradition, tonight is our reminder of the joy in dressing up, our unadulterated love of fashion and embracing grand gestures of unbridled expressions, reactions, ideas, and possibilities.”

After a diverse set of models flooded the venue while classic song Dream a Little Dream of Me played in the background, they then each took to the runway in the centre of the room, and the show opened with a yellow suit with matching hat, purple scarf, and lavender suede boots.

Jacobs proceeded to take fashionistas through a journey of fashion trends extending back through several decades, with highlights including a ’60s-inspired burnt orange dress with white floral appliques attached, ice-blue satin disco trousers, a green tweed suit paired with extravagant butterfly-shaped glasses, gold lame gowns, star-studded suede coats, floral print peasant-style dresses, and 1940s-influenced pinstripe suits.

Gigi Hadid walked the runway in a pale blue dress barefoot, her sister Bella Hadid sported a pink knit top, lilac jeans, and a grey hat, while Kaia Gerber made a splash in a flowing floral dress with dramatic sleeves.

And Jacobs also appeared to reference the costumes in new HBO series Euphoria, especially in relation to neon brights and shiny tights, as well as the metallic eyeshadow Pat McGrath swiped on many of the models’ lids.

Brock Collection and Badgley Mischka also presented on the final day of New York Fashion Week.

Kate Moss used to choose who she wanted to be friends with based on their taste in clothes.

The supermodel made the comments during an interview for British Vogue, in which she reflected on what someone’s fashion sense reveals about them as a person.

“When I was a kid, if someone had a good jacket, I wanted to be friends with them,” she stated. “It was like, ‘They’re my tribe.’ You are drawn to them because their clothes show their attitude.”

While the magazine’s May 2019 cover star enthused over those who make sartorial statements, Kate lamented that fashion seems to have lost its individuality in recent years. Instead, the blonde beauty went on to suggest that people should make outfit choices that they feel represent and “celebrate” their personality.

“Clothes are so much more than just fashion,” the 45-year-old reflected. “They are about an incredible life.”

Kate went on to share that much of her philosophy on fashion was inherited from the late German-Italian actress and model Anita Pallenberg, who she first met in 1984, aged 10, and became close friends with later on in life.

Despite being 32 years her senior, the model gushed that Anita’s personal style was a constant source of inspiration for her.

“Her way of dressing wasn’t just rock chick, she was more poetic. She wasn’t trying to be sexy, she was creating a story,” the mother-of-one observed, adding that she is also influenced by her friend’s unconventional attitude, both in fashion and in her relationships. “She wanted to run with the boys, and she did, for a long time. The fearlessness of her sexuality was kind of ‘f**k you.'”
