Sumary of At New York Fashion Week, J.Crew Rings in the Late Aughts Fashion Revival:
- Along with Jacobs, Leon and Lim were a pillar of the late aughts fashion scene—OC was the most influential place in retail for the NYC It-crowd and fashion fans, according to a 2008 New York Times piece, until closing its doors in 2020.
- Judging by the rest of the NYFW schedule, Babenzien isn’t the only one with his eyeballs cast a decade into the past.
- And tonight’s Fendi one-off NYFW Fendi show finds Marc Jacobs, who reached the height of his cultural and commercial energy in the late aughts, presenting a special amass with Kim Jones honoring the Fendi Baguette bag, that ultimate coming-of-age status symbol in turn-of-the-century New York.
- Remember 2009’s Fashion’s Night Out, that post-crash celebration of New York’s fashion retailers led by Vogue’s inner circle of designers and A-list friends?
