Bermuda shorts reappear on catwalk at New York Fashion Week

AP is reporting that fashion designer Marc Jacobs included Hawaiian print Bermuda shorts paired with sequin tourist sandals in his show during New York Fashion Week.

The models who wore the Bermuda shorts were described as ‘lucky' — though not for the fashion statement.

The show was - “ ... a stifling parade of dripping hot models against a decaying beach backdrop in an armory that felt like a billion degrees.

“Catwalkers, including Cara Delevingne, wore high-necked wool and lace numbers decorated with tassels and beads on a boardwalk above black sand strewn with garbage and an abandoned bus.

“The lucky models wore Hawaiian print Bermuda shorts and sequin tourist sandals, the flat Velcro-close ones that grandma might wear with socks.

“That floral print, though, turned into some fabulous evening wear that wasn't as exaggerated as some of the opening dresses, but with the same drama. Which front-row celebrities — Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder, Julianne Hough or Hailee Steinfeld — will wear them first?

“Jackets with puffy sleeves and wide shoulders seemed most likely to land on the must-have list of Jacobs fans or the coolest marching band player you know.”
