Inspired by ’80s fashion icon Tina Chow, the Gucci A/W 2009 show was all about “a glittering, glamorous time, when going out was a way of life.” The collection had a really nice palette of colors which included turquoise, azul, violet, red, gray and black. Pieces ranged from kimono tops in asymmetrical stripes, polka-dot dresses, super metallic blouses, tailored pants and sparkly leggings and jumpsuit.
After a decade, François Nars finally returned to the runway at the Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 show.
Drawing inspiration from the New York night club scene of the 1970s and ’80s and the works of Sprouse, St. Laurent, and Halston, Nars took into consideration each model’s individual beauty and created 65 different makeup looks on the 65 models. Each model has a separate edgy look, reminiscent of the past but still very modern. “We are doing quite an eclectic look,” he said. The inspiration for diversity came from Nars’ book XRAY. “Marc wanted to keep that feeling,” said Nars, “the variety of looks, the same way we do the campaigns for NARS.”
