Marc Jacobs went for some strong, boxy cuts and some muted colours, big collars, big pockets, big buttons, and a strong of military… I think a lot of it looked purposely oversized and almost like young girls were wearing their dad’s uniforms… very cool! The other really cool thing about the Marc Jacob’s Spring Summer 2015 collection was the choice of hair.
At a glance the models look like clones… but this is all an illusion perfectly achieved through strong, but simple identical hair… as all the models have a variety of skin tones and features. This just proves how important the whole image is for a style to be carried off, and for a designer to always consider the hair for his/her shows.
This blunt fringed black bob can look a little harsh, but I think this was Marc Jacob’s intention, almost like they are haphazardly cut too, a little jagged and blocked dyed. I think it was a very powerful choice – because not only does it add to the whole theme, but it also really makes you concentrate on the clothes. The fringe is super long, even going over some of the model’s eyes, almost like they don’t have an identity at all! One thing is for sure if you were to sport a bold cut like the one chosen by Marc Jacobs for his models of the Spring/Summer collection 2015 New York Fashion Week, then you will certainly be noticed.
- If you already have a bob cut, then you may opt for a black colour – but remember this can wash you out – so get advice from your colourist. You can still enjoy this cut without the colour.
- If you have bob, and want the long, striking fringe that covers the eyes a little, but don’t want to commit to having one cut in, try a clip in one from Balmain – I use them for shoots and brides and swear by the brand!
- Keep it a little messy by adding a tiny bit of wax, and scrunching the top layer, leaving the rest smooth, or you can just not brush the top layer properly in the morning after sleeping on it and just go over the fringe and under layer with the GHDs.
- The cut looks roughly done, and a little bit Lego hair’ish, but I wouldn’t recommend you do this at home, often the messiest or roughest dos are the hardest to achieve, so ask your hairstylist and they will find it super easy, because it is what they are good at. Leave the scissors out of arm’s and harm’s reach and concentrate on getting a cool Marc Jacob-esque outfit to rock with it.
Well ahead of NYFW with my black bob ;o)
I’m all for the strong looking bob myself, and here is me celebrating my 40th late last month with my gorgeous hubby, who spoilt me with a holiday away.
You can see my hair is not as messy and my fringe isn’t as long, but I’m well ahead of New York Fashion Week with my black bob, even at forty ;o).
