Marc Jacobs

Can we take a second to talk about Marc Jacobs’ talent? I think it’s fair (in my opinion) to say that he is probably one of the best, if not the best designer of his generation. I discovered the wonderful designer when I stumble on his documentary Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton on television (which you should watch if you haven’t already) and that’s when I fell in love with him and with his magnificent creations.  This was probably the first time I actually came across fashion and designers and I think that he is part of the reason why I love so much fashion today.  Some people don’t know this, but Marc Jacobs doesn’t only designs for his own labels Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs, but he is also the creative director of Louis Vuitton.  That means that every season, the American designer has to create clothes for three different lines (If you want to know the difference between Marc by Marc Jacobs and Marc Jacobs : the first one is a diffusion line, which offers clothes at lower price than his first signature line).   In the documentary, you can see how Marc spends his time between New York and Paris trying to put together collections for one of the biggest fashion empires that exists and for his own label.  Even with three collections every season (that doesn’t even count his children collection), he still manages to create original clothes and he’s able to maintain different styles for each one.  I really like the fact that Marc Jacobs, like many other designers, doesn’t only work for a big empire, which usually might restrain a little bit freedom, but also show all of his own creativity through other work and other collections as well. In short, what I have to say is thank you Marc Jacobs for sharing your talent with us.
