NYC-native Marc Jacobs has always been one to draw inspiration from the diversity that the Big Apple offers. For his Fall/Winter 2017 collection, the renowned fashion designer tapped into the culture of his hometown Brooklyn, painting a vibrant visual narrative of the borough during the ’90s. To offer a fresh and faithful depiction, Marc Jacobs enlisted Brooklyn-based photographer/videographer Tyler Mitchell to shoot a series of photos that encapsulated the hip hop culture, diversity and rich sartorial styling that both the fashion label and borough embrace.

Set against rich backdrops of red-brick, concrete and pre-war buildings, a mixed cast of Mitchell’s friends, street-cast locals and models donned tracksuits, oversized sweaters, fur-lined coats, statement-making hats and a generous amount of gold accessories for an amplified visual of Brooklyn culture. Flip through the photo set above and share your thoughts below.
