For his fall-winter 2017 collection, Marc Jacobs found inspiration in hip-hop. After watching the documentary series, ‘Hip-Hop Evolution’, the American designer paid tribute to the genre with the latest season. The fall season spotlighted layered looks starting with roomy jackets worn over baggy trousers and sweaters. Jacobs’ fabric of choice was corduroy. From pants to jackets, the retro fabric cements the collection’s 80’s vibe. And when the Marc Jacobs woman wants to show some skin, there are thigh-high slip dresses or embroidered skirts. For footwear, platform shoes and sleek, calf high boots deliver. Finishing the look are backward baseball caps, cloche hats, beanies and gold chains made with artist Urs Fischer.

“As a born and bred New Yorker, it was during my time at the High School of Art and Design when I began to see and feel the influence of hip-hop on other music as well as art and style,” Jacobs says in the show notes. “This collection is my representation of the well-studied dressing up of casual sportswear. It is an acknowledgement and gesture of my respect for the polish and consideration applied to fashion from a generation that will forever be the foundation of youth culture street style.”

BELLA HADID STARS ON THE COVER OF 'TEEN VOGUE''S LOVE ISSUE

Bella Hadid on the cover of Teen Vogue's Love issue, Volume 1.

Teen Vogue has debuted its first issue of 2017 on Monday as part of its new plans to release only four publications a year. Titled "Volume 1," the issue focuses on young love and features everyone's favorite model Bella Hadid, alongside breakout actress/rising fashion muse Sasha Lane and singer/LGBTQ activist Troye Sivan with their own solo covers.

Though Hadid has already garnered a number of spring campaigns, Teen Vogue's "Love" issue marks her first cover of the year. Photographed by Daniel Jackson and interviewed by Editor Elaine Welterworth, Hadid dishes to the publication about her love for horses — a common theme among her profile stories — and breaking up with The Weeknd. (The two made their debut red carpet appearance almost exactly a year ago at the Grammys.) 

Hadid also recalls the moment she shared on the runway with her ex during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show shortly after they split up. The heavily captured encounter went viral — our own Editor-in-Chief dubbed it "The One That Got Away" — but it wasn't so easy at the time, according to the 20-year-old. "It'll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through," Hadid told Teen Vogue.

On a lighter note, however, the publication also created a fun video starring Hadid as an '80s poster girl, adored by a very lucky 12-year-old named Shane Stesner. There's even a cute dancing scene between the two.

PRABAL GURUNG'S FALL 2017 COLLECTION WAS A TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO POWERFUL WOMEN

Fashion

Candice Huffine walks the Prabal Gurung Fall 2017 runway.

I have never cheered or whooped at the end of a fashion show. I have clapped, yes, and even done so enthusiastically, but I have never been moved beyond that. 

That all changed at Prabal Gurung's Fall 2017 show. Gurung was inspired by the powerful women in his life; in his show notes, he called the collection a love letter to his woman, "who inspires us to present our unabashed and unapologetic definition of femininity with a bite." The Nepalese designer looked back to women in 1940s wartime in both America and Nepal — women "who understood that one minority's downfall is equivalent to the demise of all humanity."

The collection started with the question, "What does it mean to say a woman should 'dress like a woman?'" Gurung's answer: gorgeous, luxurious clothes ranging from overcoats made of thick wool or brightly colored furs, to flowing gowns in silks and velvets. Mixed in with neutrals were electric pops of lemon yellow, emerald green and teal blues. The finale brought three gowns in an abstract camo print made of embroidered floating crystals that, despite their weight, floated down the runway. If that had been all, it would have been another incredible collection from Gurung.

But as the finale started to a cover of "Imagine," the audience learned that wasn't all. Gurung had changed each of his models into graphic tees with empowering slogans: "Our minds, our bodies, our power," "Nevertheless she persisted," "I am an immigrant," and finally, "We will not be silenced." The models took the runway slower than usual, giving the audience time to read each shirt. Smatterings of applause and cheers broke out in waves; by the end, I'm sure I was not the only one who was in tears. 

From so many other designers, this could have felt like a ham-fisted attempt to grab the spotlight. But from Gurung, who has been a passionate advocatefor so many issues in his native Nepal and in America, it was a truly heartfelt moment. And he didn't just talk the talk; he walked the walk with his casting, adding plus size models Candice Huffine and Marquita Pring (a first for Gurung!) to his diverse lineup, which also included Joan Smalls, Josephine Skriver, Sara Sampaio and Bella Hadid, who opened the show. 

Between the beautiful clothes, the wonderful casting and the powerful message, by the end, I couldn't help but whoop for Gurung during his finale along with so many other people; I feel comfortable saying it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. It was the perfect way to use the kind of platform given to designers during fashion week. "This is the time to speak our conviction and use our voices to invoke change," Gurung says in his show notes. "This is the upside of the downside."
