I often ask myself what makes Marc Jacobs so popular and loved? He’s up and down fashion creativeness isn’t one of the reasons, I’m sure!
Now I think I know the answer – his nude posing! Marc Jacobs loves to expose himself. Ever since he lost his chubby appearance, his adoration for his new body is unbelievable. Now he tagged himself with Louis Vuitton à la Graffiti style and posed with a reinvention of late Stephen Sprouse’s Graffiti LV series. The shot wasn’t wrapped up by Juergen Teller, as you may think (or suspect from the looks of it) but by Terry Richardson.(more after the jump)
The Stephen Sprouse Book will be launched in January, so this Louis Vuitton new Graffiti madness for Harper’s Bazaar is supposed to be a collateral media event meant to sustain and promote the upcoming Rock On Mars Sprouse retrospective. Instead, it looks to me like Louis Vuitton steals all the spotlight with this new Graffiti collection.
Who better for a quick advertisement? What I’m beginning to see now, sadly, is Louis Vuitton turning into a subsidiary of Marc Jacobs Inc. Everything MJ touches turns to gold. Do you think his promoting himself instead of promoting his brand/s is a good thing for fashion? (via harpersbazaar, wwd)
