As NYFW approaches, we take a walk down memory lane.

١. Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2015

Tommy Hilfiger staged his own version of a rock festival for his Spring 2015 collection. Set designer Randall Peacock created a 1960s vibe with festivals’ language, such as Woodstock and the Isle of Wight, yet kept it contemporary. Specifically, Hilfiger and Peacock used the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover as well as modern-day music festivals.

٢. Coach 1941, SS 2017

In spring 2017, Stuart Vevers pushed his vision of Coach as a cool girl version of ’50s Americana. It also had major Elvis influences, with handbags featuring his face, and rusty vintage cars piled high on the floor. At the end of the show, Vever’s rockabilly girls slouched against the pile of rusted cars.

٣. Marc Jacobs Fall 2012

Marc Jacobs always presents extraordinary shows, and this was no different. This show featured a stunning set created by Rachel Feinstein, which looked like a small village made of intricate paper cutouts, and somehow, looked like a smurfy psychedelic trip through the Victorian age.

٤. Givenchy SS 2016

Under the direction of Riccardo Tisci, Givenchy presented its Spring/Summer 2016 collection on Pier 26 next to the Hudson River and in front of the Freedom Tower at sundown, when the building’s lights began to shimmer in tribute to September 11, 2001.

٥. Thom Browne AW 2012

Thom Browne presented a conceptual show that you may either love or hate, depending on your taste and artistic sensibilities. The theme: dead women. According to The New York Times, women who had “died for fashion.”

Yes, it was quite gothic and eccentric…but certainly unforgettable.
