like a walking Lula magazine

Greetings and salutations! It is I, Technologically Challenged Individual With Difficulties Setting Up Internet In Hotel Rooms Until Now. Meet my friend back at home, Computer That Blocked All Google-Related Stuff For Reasons Unknown And Therefore Wouldn't Let Me Update This Blog Before I Left For New York. You can call that one "Frustrating" for short.

Lots to say! Lots to write. Let's start with Marc while it's fresh in my mind.via wwd

To cut it to the chase, I was gasping through most of the looks at Marc Jacobs tonight (until I realized how it kind of disrupted the whole dreamy quiettimes vibez, and stopped.) How could I not, really -- furs and sunglasses in pastels and neutrals, ankle-length slips with slingback flats, and soft knits all draped on the girls gliding across the cardboard-clad runway to a soundtrack of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. The fabrics moved nicely. The models resembled the tiny graceful figurines that spin in an opened jewelry box, or the human sums of numerous collages crafted by young dreamers out of magazine clippings and backyard finds. There was a clear air of foggy nostalgia that drifted throughout the room, clinging to coattails in shades of pale yellow and grey.

But this ain't no cheap, vintage-redux shit -- velvets, over-the-elbow leather gloves, and different patterns for fur brought the silk slips and Marianne Faithfull styles to our time and day, and with the update came a quiet power; a type of hopefulness and willingness to move on from a bittersweet yearning. This added mystery reminded me of a lady Bob Dylan might sing about, or a character from The Westing Game, and just further proved that power doesn't have to be conveyed through the overly aggressive but underwhelming black-leather-studs formula that's been popular for a few seasons now. Marc Jacobs frequently talks about how he wants to see young girls having fun with clothes, and he expressed to me how excited he was about the models this season because they all had personality and individual style. A bandwagon I'd love for more people to hop on! If a nostalgic look is done right, in it can be found strength supported merely by the confidence to be so blatantly excited about clothing, and the mysteries one can create with this tool at their disposal.

Some powers really can only be found in grey, 3/4ths-length, woolen skirts.

Having fun with clothes should definitely be the essence of fashion. Lovely post :)

That was a really good, deep, insightful review. Have fun in NY.

Clothes were made so that we could have fun with them. ;)

Diane said...

Thanks for the review, it's good to catch an inside opinion.

You described the show in such a re comforting manner :)

Have a fun day

flowsofhunger said...

i loved it. my favourite was the mustard sweater with the slinky skirt.i think it wasnt so much about a new style but more of recreating a new look from the past seasons. i am glad that you had the opportunity to go for the show.

MAISON CHAPLIN said...

Alexander Wang and bellissima Custo Barcelona were my favourite until now, Custo rocks

Margaret Tran said...

Grey is quite the underrated colour of choice for most peeps. Frak yeah Marc Jacobs! <3

One of my instructors used to work with Marc and Tom Ford years ago in New York. We were actually talking about Marc today. It was brought up that Marc Jacobs was banning celebs from his runway shows, and my instructor thought that that was a good idea, but he wasn't sure if Marc was doing it for the right reasons. I guess Marc used to be really "normal" and just didn't really give a damn what people though, but over the years that changed? I don't know though, I really can't say. I don't know the guy personally. But anyways, your post brought that to mind.

Lovers, Saints and Sailors said...

Awesome to see slips back on the runway.
I've been trying to bring them back single handedly but it's nice to have Marc on board now.

Sonia said...

Really good review! I don't know why so many people doubt a 13 year old can write that good.

I've been sat up really late watching Marc's how being streamed live, lucky you being there in person!

What other shows are you scheduled to go to (haha that I can be jealous of!) Or is that a secret?

Well have fun at fashion week :)

that was so fabulous....poetic review...lurv it so much...

on the other hand...for me...the collection is a bit granny-ish (oops...)It would be nice if the styling fused with a little bit young...(just in the middle..not too old and not too young)....like; wedges on ankle length dress...flatforms with socks...just to give confusing yet fabulous feeling of the look...


anyways...
I still lurv Tavi!

Marc was amazing. Inspired. Just, unbelievable.

i don't really care about fashion (far too lazy) but i love reading what you write. it really makes me want to start up buying fashion magazines or something. i won't though because i am a poor art student and it would be like buying broken dreams.

rubennieto said...

Fantastic post! I love this style !!

Meghan Roberts said...

Oh Tavi, how your words are so beautiful. They transport me to some Alice and Wonderland state of mine, but far less trippy and much more delicate.

Love what you're doing.

i watched the marc jacobs show on his site live. it was really good, and i definitely enjoyed the clothes and colors closer to the end of the show.

Great review- and I really like the photo you've chosen to illustrate it. Classic silouhettes always work well, and I've just devoted a part of my latest blog post to long skirts! Funnily enough, I ust bought a 3/4 length Jaeger grey and black tartan wool skirt from a charity shop, and was thinking about putting it with ankle socks.
I know I already emailed a reply, but I really appreciated your response to my message.
Oh, and I just bought a French Vogue, not realising that it was the one with an article about you in it. I am now practising my french skills by attempting to see how much of I can translate and understand! It is certainly an incentive to learn French- reading french vogue (+other magazines), french blogs and watching french films. Haaha.
Hope you've been enjoying Fashion week.

The way you write about yet another collection - as usually it's really worth reading. Great post :)

(although 3/4ths-lenght skirts is something I'll never change my mind about. Bleh) :)

MJ was amazing. great description of it. love the bandwagon bit. xx

After all of the large shoulders-unremitting black-skyscraper heels-leather pants, this collection was a breath of fresh air. Sort of like the first whiff of spring! Stay warm in New York.

How I wish I could be there...
I loved most of this collection, but some of it didn't inspire me. You pretty much put it into words for me (though I'll try blogging it myself)

I've been stalking you, but I only just got a blog (no followers or comments yet...) so now I can comment :)
I sound like a wierdo from that ¬¬

I'm amazed by the number of people who keep saying your hair is grey - it looks exceptionally blue to me. (unless i'm behind the times...)

Tavi, you are a gifted and talented person, and I love your blog, but the fact that your readers and you refer to your room as merely "messy" . . . my God. It's an episode of Hoarders waiting to happen. Please clean your room, at the very least, empty your garbage. Can you tell I'm a MOM!!! Jesus.

Jessica Focks said...

It seems the 'so-called' fashionista Perez Hilton has made it his buisness to comment on your blog, via his "fashon blog" cocoperez.com. (A blog where he posts photos of celebs in garb, and ridicules them) Just wanted to say, do not listen to this overweight, bitter famewhore. His post is dripping with jealousy and his sense of style is atrocious and tacky. You are far more readable, lovable, talented and fashionable that that coward. XX

Samantha said...

I managed to slide into my computer chair just in time for the show to start via live stream.

I think you've really captured the essence of the show perfectly. You have a unique voice and take on fashion that I never would have had at your age, nor do I think I have five years later.

I hope you go far <3

marc always seems to have fun, without getting all rihanna-edgy about things, and he is always, always elegant. even if it's a different elegance to what we might imagine.

Basilio ( Basil ) Farano said...

Tavi, wonderfully written. You have worked very hard to get the opportunity to see a show like that live; in fact to be invited. It must be very satisfying for you.
I also read some of the comments from your discussion from the blog forum in NYC. I think you made some fantastic points. You make writing about fashion seem easy, which everyone knows it isnt. I cant imagine the talent you will have in 10 years!!! I will be following your blog on a regular basis from now on.
Great work.

you nailed it! love the westing game, jewelry box ballerina, and magazine clipping dreamer references...all so true :) haha

Pyxie Gwynne said...

I caught the show online. "There was a clear air of foggy nostalgia that drifted throughout the room, clinging to coattails in shades of pale yellow and grey" it really emanated off the screen. I liked that it steered away from in-your-face-aggression-RAWRRRR, yenno? I'm excited for the fall.

Miel said...

I've really loved watching your blog evolve! And you've never failed to put a smile on my face:)

...usually in the library. and people tend to look at you funny when you're literally lol-ing there but.....hey, i <3 you:)

and awesome job at that blogger panel btw :)

Autumn-Lynn Tummavichakul said...

Wonderfully stated Tavi ... Marc continues to evolve and celebrate not only beautiful fashion, but also the woman he designs for. One of the most brilliant things about him (aside from his creations).

Thanks for sharing ... xo

Sarah (Buzz) said...

I like your interpretation. I wish I had been at the show. It sound so surreal. I read about it on style.com and was in aww. I bet it was kind of mystical having such a happy/strange song from none other than the wizard of oz playing while models stared out at the crowd after they were able to be seen. so strange but also interesting. Marc Jacobs and his team are so creative. I love how the fashion designers today are really making statements with their shows. Marc Jacobs was also more than a statement. he didn't just do something totally strange to get his point across but something traditional. I loved it.

I love the westing game!I wish I could have been there it sounds awesome!More people should gasp at the clothes.That shows that you love the clothes and usually that you would love to wear them- kids know how to do this(though some adults know how)

andrea said...

I have a sweater that Marc designed when he used to work at a store in NYC called Charivari. The sweater(s) were his graduation project from Parsons. If you want, email me and I will send you a picture of it. It looks a lot like the early knits of Rei Kawakubo and Yohji, oversized and stretched out. Oddly, (or maybe not oddly) it looks just as fresh today!

the golden fairy princess said...

the show sounds like it was amazing, i always love marc. and the westing game, hahahah you have what are quite possibly the funniest references ever.

I met the mother of the model who opened the Marc show tonight (kind of random, i know) and she was just gushing about how amazing the box/runway thing was and the somewhere over the rainbow bit. Must have been amazing to be there.

"underwhelming black-leather-studs formula" ugh it's so boring. i hate overt/aggressive. subtlety and intellect, please!

oh also, you were very charming (and just as I imagined) at IFB.

I have never gone weak at the knees over Marc Jacobs' collections - almost always to girly - but this collection surprised me the most. The mix of texture, playing with length and fabrics - I just love it. And everyone is talking about it.

Chic Petite said...

Marc Jacobs is a master of all that is British and edgy, he can make the most high fashion wearable and I'm loving his 40s warchild collection - that's what it makes me think of, British children jumping off a steam train heading through the fields to their new safe haven. Jacobs and Chanel are my favourites, old fashioned modernity and the ultimate in luxury and elegance. Yes please. And I'll be very jealous if you, Tavi, are at the Marchesa show.

Alice Cassidy said...

Librarian? 4o's? warchild?... whatever this colecion reminds you of who else, other that marc jacobs can make
90's school socks look SO good. (:


Great review tavi. You really can tell that you truley do have a love and passion for fashion.

aubrey said...

Tavi- please don't jump on the fur bandwagon. Fashion is a happy, fun, creative thing- fur is torture, death, skinning while alive and anal/vaginal electrocution. There is nothing redeeming about it. Faux furs have come a long way and there is no reason to kill animals for clothing. Fashion should not take lives. In a more recent post you gush about your dog, but truthfully, many furs which are sold as raccoon are actually dog. Neiman Marcus was just successfully sued for selling dog fur which was labeled raccoon.

Fashion is inspirational and fun. Please keep it that way and don't support fur use.

Fashion without humor and joy is nothing but clothing - so you definitely know fashion and aren't a rookie at all!

Renae said...

Tavi, your reference to The Westing Game brought me back to being your age when I read the book...a fantastic diversion in my regular work day, I must admit. I hope you always keep your ability to expertly state your opinion on the latest fashion trends like someone twice your age, while still holding on to your imaginative child-like spirit. Great work!

Anyway Tavi- I didn't get to meet you at the evolving influence fashion blogging conference (I was too shy to find you) but I absolutely loved hearing what you had to say! I am glad that you do what you do for the love of it, and not to impress other people (like a lot of bloggers).
Well without being cheezy or too "look at me, look at me" here is my blog-

Dear Tavi,

You are so fun to read. I love your viewpoint & the way you describe fashion. I love when you talk about school. I'm such a fangirl. :)

The fools who say you don't write your own blog are feeling a little heat, no? (as Karl would say)

When I was 8, I won a poetry contest (ooh!), and the teacher wouldn't give me the prize (a bag of candy ;) because she said I "couldn't have possibly written it" myself, "it was too good."

Such was my introduction to the writing profession: 1. jealousy, 2. threats of plagiarism, and 3.
everyone's a critic, 4. my mom was pissed at how they treated me. LOL

I recognize a little of my braver, younger self in your writing, as I'm sure many do. That's why it's so enjoyable. You do have your own completely unique voice, though. I hope you run a magazine someday, or whatever it is you wish to do. Go all J.D. Salinger.

I looooved the robot/alien hair. Or did you say it was Grey Gardens? Either one is a fitting tribute to your attendance at the shows.

Go on with your bad self! LOL

Love,

Beka
