Today’s post got two aims; one is to feature the latest Louis Vuitton collection designed by Marc Jacobs, while the second is to say good-bye to the man just mentioned. Well yes; call it breaking news but the rumours are confirmed facts by now; Marc Jacobs is leaving LV after his 16-year-long tenure at the brand. Jacobs presented his final show in Paris, that was dedicated to celebrate his greatest hits – created entirely in black, as was his first show for the label. An eclectic mash-up of sheers, feathers, denim and excess could best describe the pieces with a hint of tomboyish feel. ‘Jacobs dedicated the show to all the women who have inspired him and the showgirl in every one of them’ – as he explained to Vogue. The reason of his leaving though – as WWD reported – is that the American designer wants to focus on taking his brand public on the stock market, as it heads towards an IPO. Well, I suppose an era has just ended and a new one is yet to come…Hello former Balenciaga creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière?
Nowadays many women are in leading positions at different companies/brands mostly when the job is related to the fields of fashion…The new generation of Head of PR-s, Sales, Art Directors or Editor-in-Chiefs due to sometimes being only in their 30s, have changed the rules in work-wear and are extravagantly mixing diverse range of pieces instead of just wearing the usual ‘black-and-white costume match’. Here is an example from SilkSoFine with love!
Heutzutage gibt es viele Frauen in führenden Positionen, die für unterschiedliche Unternehmen/Marken arbeiten, oftmals wenn der Job etwas mit Mode zu tun hat…
To celebrate Diet Coke’s 30th anniversary, Coca-Cola has collaborated with Marc Jacobs on a special limited edition of Diet Coke bottles in three kinds. As part of the special ‘Sparkling Together For 30 Years‘ celebrations, the designer has made over the iconic bottle with three stylish and exclusive designs to celebrate each of the three decades since the drink was launched. ‘I Heart ’80s’ embodies the rise of the empowered woman in all her glory, while ‘I Heart ’90s’ is about extravagant attitude of the era where fashion, music and art collided in a glamorous exploration of strong femininity and daring attitude, and ‘I Heart ’00s’ is a playful and lighthearted illustration of the sporty-cool decade, embodying humour, sexiness and energy and edge. I love how Marc’s designs are making a nice match with my bottle from the previous Jean-Paul Gaultier x Coca-Cola collaboration.

This controversial fashion film is the result of the collaboration between Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton ‘s Art Director and Katie Grand, Editor-in-Chief of British LOVE Magazine, has rather split the crowd. Dutch fashion magazine Blend, titled their short film feature ‘Glamorises Prostitution’ by saying it all and indeedly right. The exclusive editorial video features the latest Louis Vuitton collection – where ‘underwear turned daywear’ was a concept – worn by models like Cara Delevingne, Edie Campbell, Georgia May Jagger or Isabeli Fontana as they are ‘doing their filthy jobs’ in the dark alleyways of Paris. I guess you need to have an open mind (a very open mind) to actually take in such sort of art, if it can be called one, and realise it’s purpose and creative side. Mostly Marc Jacobs has been blamed so far, by fashion critics, top lawyers, French parties etc…but when in this era fashion was about pure reality, innocence or anything ordinary? Frankly, never. There has always been seducing, fantasy, filth, fur; the things you want but know you will never be able to attain. The film will definitely propose further questions/scandals where there will be no conclusion; what was done once, cannot be undone, no matter how strongly Marc shifts off the responsibility to Katie.
