Comeback to Karl Lagerfeld, snook institutions, daring and creative hair dye delusions barmy… Marc Jacobs can all afford, as his talent is great. Up at Louis Vuitton, we owe him the facelift over a Speedy, sharp artistic collaborations and a line of ready-to-wear innovative, while the side of his own label he continues to make and unmake fashion…
The famous fashion designer Marc Jacobs was born in New York in 1963. His father died when he was only 7 years old, a disappearance that will mark him deeply. He then lived in Teaneck, New Jersey with his mother, sister and younger brother. His mother remarried three times, and each time the family moved.
As a teenager, Marc Jacobs has had enough of this life and decides to go live with his paternal grandmother. He loves his home taste for travel and beautiful things, including the creations of his little son. With her, he finds emotional stability and encouragement he needed to plot his path in life. He will continue to live in the apartment of his grandmother on the Upper West Side even after the death of the latter in 1987. This date marks the end of his relationship with his family.
It is natural that the young man then enters the Parsons School for Design in New York. Gifted student, he received numerous awards and was noticed by Robert Duffy, with whom he established a commercial partnership that continues today. At only 24, Marc Jacobs won the New Fashion Talent Award from the CFDA, Council of Fashion Designers of America!
Retro themes (with a preference for the 70) are found in most of his creations, and the collection he presents in 1994 is a milestone in the world of fashion. The great perfectionism demonstrated by the couturier quickly earned him a loyal clientele and an international celebrity. The Marc Jacobs boutiques spread throughout the US, but in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Since 1997, Marc Jacobs became the artistic director of the house Louis Vuitton, where he oversees the creation of a line of clothing for women, a men’s line and accessories. Gradually, the designer will hoist the Vuitton alongside major fashion, well beyond the baggage manufacturer’s image. Meanwhile, the designer launched a secondary line (Marc by Marc Jacobs) and lines for babies and children (Stinky Rat and Little Marc). LVMH’s participation in the Marc Jacobs label ensures its growth.
Fascinated by contemporary art, Marc Jacobs collaborated with renowned artists like Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince. With the help of musicians like Stephen Malkmus, Jarvis Cocker and Michael Stipe, the designer transforms his ad campaigns into real media events.
His campaigns are also fashion that playful or provocative as the campaign to fight against skin cancer where Victoria Beckham, Hilary Swank, Julianne Moore and Christy Turlington agreed to pose nude and become effigies of tee-shirts committed to the slogan ” Protect the skin you’re in”.The mannequins (or celebrities) chosen by Marc Jacobs are often highlighted by the German photographer Juergen Teller.
Marc Jacobs, who claims his homosexuality, had as friend Jason Preston and Erik Rhodes. Unfortunately, the hectic life he leads (including nightlife after the shows with alcohol, cocaine and heroin) has failed to destroy. With the support of his friend Robert Duffy, Marc Jacobs in 2007 followed a detox drugs and alcohol.
Today, Marc Jacobs lives in Paris near the Eiffel Tower. He struggled to get used to French food, regular meal, lack of diverse ethnic groups, but gradually the creator appreciates Parisian life and decreasing temptations it represents. This creative genius remains the darling of the hype society, and even has been ranked 8th on the list established by the “Out Magazine’s” 50 most influential men and women of America…
