According to WWD’s twitter page, Vogue editor Grace Coddington wooped in delight at the sight of the first afro making its way down the runway. But “wooping” doesn’t compare to the outright fits of excitement I made when the first images made their way online.

Inspired by “travelers – the movement that came after Punk,” Jacobs marched down a legend of models in glorious afro wigs along with an unexpected array of bold accessories including neon fur tails, denim satchels, adorned kitten heals and even a chic fanny pack or two.

The collection embraced a street-chic lifestyle with rich satchel bags and the lowest heels seen at any show at Paris Fashion Week so far. Jacobs identified the collection as, “Street clothes, embracing the hippie-cyber, tribal-punk world,” and I just call it the best creative display of talent embracing the Afro movement I have seen thus far; a breath of fresh air for those of us seeking to embrace a comfortable wardrobe while maintaining a fresh sense of adventure-seeking bravado. Bravo.
