It’s officially a wrap for the decidedly newsy Fashion Month that is now behind us, which means the final reviews, covering the best for last from Miu Miu, Hermès and, of course, Louis Vuitton (which ultimately became a farewell homage from Marc Jacobs to the luxury label after sixteen years at its helm) are streaming in.

And if you’re looking for an astute, succinct and no-bullshit take on the last hurrah, there’s only one place to find it: where Cathy Horyn describes in inconspicuous love letter formation how emotional and poignant that final collection was, followed simply by a relieving admittance of exhaustion and the between-the-lines celebration of a moment of rest.

Read the full feature here then come back and tell us what you think. About everything. Even grocery shopping if you want to go there.
