Instead they wore well-fitting zipped tops or elegantly cut checkered jackets that seemed to belong more

Marc Jacobs On Beauty And Diversity

Last week’s Marc Jacobs ready-to-wear show was not without controversy, with many decrying the rainbow dreadlock-inspired wigs he used for the hair and sparking a furious Twitter debate about cultural appropriation .

Marc Jacobs Joins Instagram

Instagram/themarcjacobs AFTER a week in the headlines following the news that his diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, was being absorbed into his mainline, Marc Jacobs is keeping his name at the forefront by joining Instagram.

Marc Jacobs’ Journey Through Scent

MARC JACOBS says that creating his first fragrance made him feel as though he had “arrived” as a designer. The self-named scent launched in 2003 with the now-defunct American Designer Fragrances division of LVMH. “I felt really legitimate and very credible because I had a designer fragrance.

Indigital Does Louis Vuitton really have so much power that its designer thinks of the drowned city of Atlantis – and then, on show day, rain of Biblical proportions falls on Paris? Saving us from the downpour, the show space was made up of tent-like sculpted pods at the back of the LV art foundation in the Bois de Boulogne. Inside, artistic effects were on the agenda, with French artist Justin Morin creating a neanderthal landscape of mirrored rocks for

Marc Jacobs On Beauty, Diversity And His Many Muses
