Tomo Koizumi is a Japanese designer whom Marc Jacobs’ stylist Katie Grand discovered on Instagram. Excited by his clothes, she and Jacobs decided to help the designer put on a show at Jacobs’ Madison Avenue store. And in some way the American designer’s collection felt the influence of Koizumi’s generous volumes and cocoon shapes, though Jacobs has been exploring hyper-proportions for a while, via the ’80s silhouettes of Yves Saint Laurent. The show included coats and cloaks taken to extremes and further pumped up by flared skirts and dresses enlarged by layers of crinolines. Feathers, ruffles and ruches all emphasised the volumes, while cone-shaped and/or feathered hats by Stephen Jones added even more height to the models.
