Je Ne Regrette Rien – Cancel the Invites

By: Lourdes Mestre for FashionWeek.Pro

 

He was late. So what. Everyone has become such excruciating critics over the years that they lack the emotional intelligence to realize that gratitude is a necessary meal that should be consumed every day. Things happen. I speak of GRATITUDE because perhaps those attendees who harshly critiqued the famed designer have seemed to forget the fact that Marc Jacobs is still a legend in his own form. The privilege of attending a show that showcases works of art like these runway looks below should NOT be overlooked. Creativity and the vision of a runway show should not be dismissed and anyone with small-minded disgust towards an artist’s delay in showing a flawless collection should not be invited to return to the show next season. Perhaps Mr. Jacobs will consider inviting the FashionWeek.Pro team – we’ll wait for hours if we have to. To those who had planes to catch, perhaps it was your own demise for not planning ahead.

These show guests who were so enraged perhaps they forgot to check their gratitude at the door.

This collection & runway show are an inspiration – a true hit and the collection is purely 5-Stars. Mr. Jacobs – please keep working your magic and delighting those of us who think you are simply fabulous. Perhaps the perfection that this Spring 2019 collection embodies is due to the fact that Mr. Jacobs simply wouldn’t accept anything less than perfect on the runway. I say cheers to that.

And Mr. Jacobs – no need for apologies.

Je Ne Regrette Rien – Annuler les invitations

Il était en retard. Et alors. Au fil des ans, tout le monde est devenu tellement critique qu’il lui manque l’intelligence émotionnelle pour réaliser que la gratitude est un repas nécessaire qui doit être consommé chaque jour. Des choses arrivent. Je parle de GRATITUDE parce que peut-être les participants qui ont critiqué durement le célèbre designer ont semblé oublier le fait que Marc Jacobs est toujours une légende sous sa propre forme. Le privilège d’assister à un spectacle qui présente des œuvres d’art comme ces looks de piste ci-dessous ne doit PAS être négligé. La créativité et la vision d’un défilé ne doivent pas être rejetées et toute personne ayant un dégoût dégoûtant envers le retard d’un artiste à montrer une collection sans faille ne devrait pas être invitée à revenir au spectacle la saison prochaine. Peut-être que M. Jacobs envisagera d’inviter l’équipe FashionWeek.Pro – nous attendrons des heures si nous le devons. Pour ceux qui avaient des avions à attraper, c’était peut-être votre propre perte pour ne pas planifier à l’avance.

Ceux-ci montrent des invités qui étaient tellement en colère ont peut-être oublié de vérifier leur gratitude à la porte.

Cette collection & défilé de mode est une inspiration – un véritable succès et la collection est purement 5 étoiles. Mr. Jacobs – continuez à travailler votre magie et à ravir ceux d’entre vous qui pensent que vous êtes simplement fabuleux. Peut-être la perfection que cette collection printemps 2019 incarne est due au fait que M. Jacobs n’accepterait rien de moins que parfait sur la piste. Je dis des acclamations à cela.

Et M. Jacobs – pas besoin d’excuses.

I sincerely apologize to anyone and everyone who was inconvenienced by my lateness at our Spring/Summer 2019 fashion show. For anyone interested, below is not a list of excuses but rather a list of facts. I fully understand people have plans, lives, commitments, flights, families to return to, etc and that I fully RESPECT. I’ve heard, read and reflected on your frustration, anger and outrage. If you choose to read the below, I hope that you can find your own place of understanding. 1. The night before the show at midnight, I believed that we would absolutely be starting at 6pm, as planned and it was my intention to do so. 2. At 3:30pm on the day of the show, I became aware that we would most likely be an hour late. In good faith and hope it was communicated that the show would start at 630pm and that was a mistake. 3. After years of being beyond punctual and once again, with every intention of remaining so, the fact is, more is always expected from us with fewer and fewer resources. That is not unique to me personally or us as a company. I have learned that I need to adjust to our realities. 4. It was my wishful thinking that we could accomplish all that needed to be done for this show with the circumstances we faced. I was wrong. Not because everyone didn’t make every effort or give it their all and more, life is just that way sometimes. I’ve always been told that, “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.” With our shows, I always strive to present 7-10 minutes of live fashion theatre that hopefully makes some kind of statement or touch the audience in some way both aesthetically and emotionally. I think we all have to be a little more sensitive and flexible to the fragile state of the live experience. I hope anyone reading this will reflect on my thoughts as I have on yours. 
Sincerely and respectfully, Marc

Breaking with recent tradition, the Marc Jacobs show started late, as in nearly an hour and a half late. Something about a truck of clothes stuck in traffic . . . . The experience took us olds in the crowd back to September 2007, when Jacobs’s 9:00 p.m. show didn’t go off until 11. That season, Suzy Menkes took Jacobs to task in the International Herald Tribune; this season, the Brits beat hasty retreats to waiting Ubers a good 45 minutes before the first model hit the runway, to catch flights back to London. Eleven years on, fashion feels like a different business—less fun and more serious.

The takeaway from New York’s Spring 2019 shows is a tale of the haves and the have-nots. On one side are the big guys, with budgets to rival their European counterparts but with not much authentic or essential to say. On the other are the scrappy kids, who are idea rich but mostly resource poor. In between, mid-career designers are getting squeezed: downsizing, opting out of shows, or dropping off the calendar entirely. It doesn’t feel sustainable.

Jacobs is one of the big guys, but from time to time—well, it’s been a long time, actually—he demonstrates that scrappy kid quality. The designer, who is 55 this year, was a fashion-mad teenager, and the collection he showed tonight played out like one of his fever dreams. There were callbacks to ’80s-era Yves Saint Laurent, to Karl Lagerfeld’s earliest days at Chanel (everyone says it’s the job he’s always wanted), and to his own deep archive, only everything was taken to extremes: the froth, the feathers, the giant ruffly Pierrot collars. Like cotton candy, which its pastel colors evoked, the collection was ridiculous and sublime at the same time, and its couture extravagance absolutely won you over.

For the past few seasons, the fashion press, this journalist included, have worried over Jacobs’s commercial prospects. This fanciful offering won’t alleviate that. What it does reinforce is how necessary and vital Jacobs is to the local landscape. He is New York’s keeper of the fashion flame.
