There’s a classic Twilight Zone episode the save a client turns into locked in a division retailer after hours and finds all the mannequins technique to existence. Right here’s the twist: She is actually a mannequin herself. Hmm… After a spooky and surreal dinner at Bergdorf Goodman, I’m pondering I would for certain give it all up to alter into a Marc Jacobs mannequin. They save on black and white striped cocoon-admire puffer coats admire these of Qui Êtes-Vous Polly Maggoo? They enjoy got radically incandescent khaki skirts over pants. Their platform mary-janes are at the least 10 inches important. Oh yeah, and they’re huge dancers. Merely before dinner, the “mannequins” we had been admiring and taking selfies with published themselves to be accurate people by flowing and spinning around the desk.
That turn out to be apt for certain among the handfuls of surprises up Jacobs’s pristinely tailored sleeve Thursday night. The match, to designate the starting up of Jacobs’s queer-to-Bergdorf Goodman fall 2021 sequence, began with a sales affiliate handing me a flashlight on the pitch-black purse ground and titillating me to “snoop around.” (Desires aside, I did no longer salvage even a keyfob!) A total lot of guests dilapidated theirs to build up secret envelopes, which, about two ground and ten audible gasps later, were published to be tarot cards read by an eclectic lady in a huge black dress and even better body glitter. (My card, the 2 of pentacles, encourages intellectual one’s worth in the monetary geographical regions.) Scarlett Envy emceed the evening in a, effectively, scarlet sequin amount she made that very day whereas West Dakota delivered two monumental performances, one on the shoe ground and one after dinner. Jacobs’s company Chloë Sevigny, Debi Mazar, Anna Sui, Kim Petras, Ella Emhoff, Helena Christensen, and Amelia Grey Hamlin took it all in as the evening transitioned from mysterious occurring to a straight-up fashion banger.
Bergdorf’s Linda Fargo addressed diners to verify that Marc had perfectly captured the gradual-night, Night time at the Museum feeling of BG after darkish, “No person before has ever captured that essence and turned it into a occurring. Leave it to Marc, who provides us so many firsts; there are such quite a bit of seminal moments in the arc of fashion the save Marc changed the epic of fashion and moved us forward in some surprising new device.” Oh, and one more factor! “I actually want that striped puffer!” Fargo cheered after her toast. Perhaps Linda wishes to be a Marc mannequin too? It’s a buy, extremely effectively attired, and beautiful fun bunch.
