Marc Jacobs International Grunge Collection

Undercover Agents like a good throw-back.  How befitting that fashion designer, Marc Jacobs, has announced the the launch of Redux Grunge Collection 1993/2018 Marc Jacobs, a capsule celebrating 25 years since the iconic Spring 1993 ‘Grunge’ collection he designed for Perry Ellis.  FYI — when critics panned the legendary show, Jacobs was fired by the brand.  25 years later, Perry Ellis International congratulates Marc Jacobs on revisiting the “first of its kind collection that changed the direction of contemporary womenswear.”
     Jacobs decided to reintroduce the historic collection for 2018, this time for his eponymous label, saying: “The ‘Grunge’ collection epitomized the first time in my professional career I was unwavering in my determination to see my vision come to life on the runway, without creative compromise.” 26 key looks are reissued in their entirety, from head-to-toe, offering RTW, jewelry, shoes and accessories, all made in the original prints, fabrics and embroideries.
     A campaign, shot by Juergen Teller and featuring a range of models including Gigi Hadid and Dree Hemingway, will begin appearing in December magazines and on select digital outlets.

 

ALL EYES ON NYFW!

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

New York Fashion Week was characterized by bold fashions and even bolder eyes.  Makeup artist, Pat Montelongo, went for glamour at Tom Ford (left) as she lined models’ top lids with thick kohl liner.  “We didn’t want a straight line, we wanted a little bit of that curve to it so its not going out at an angle. It just goes softly hugging the eye and then just around the nice soft edge,” she shared.

To soften the look Montelongo diluted black glitter eyeshadow with eye gloss.  The dewy look achieved with eye gloss was definitely en vogue at Public School and Prabal Gurung (center, top and bottom). “The gloss melts into skin and moves around with the lighting,” explains Grace Lee, makeup artist for Maybelline New York, who achieved the look with Maybelline’s Shine Shot.

At Marc Jacobs (right), however, Diane Kendal‘s dramatic liner created six cat eye options.  “We’re using the black eyeliner in the waterline and using the magic marker, a pen eyeliner, and using that on top of the lid extending out and underneath — going into the inner corner. On some girls, it’s slightly thicker on the outside to really give that exaggeration.”
