What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Runway Ready:


Diana Vreeland's all red sitting room

Diana Vreeland’s all red sitting room

Marc Jacobs commissioned set designer Stefan Beckman to recreate Diana Vreeland’s all red sitting room on huge canvases to serve as the backdrop of his Fall/Winter 2015 runway show. The original room, pictured right, was described by Vreeland as “a garden in hell” and designed by Billy Baldwin (no, not that one) in 1955.

The video below by Refinery 29 is a quick but fascinating documentary on the making of that epic and massive backdrop. The finished backdrop reminds me a bit of the backgrounds in Pascal Campion‘s paintings. Really interesting stuff!

It’s pretty incredible that someone with so much to do to get ready for a show has the time and the mental energy to come up with such a complex and creative set as well. And of course, the clothes are beautiful, but the set is the real stand-out for me.
