The year was 1992, and a young designer named Marc Jacobs was showcasing his first collection for Perry Ellis. The looks epitomized the grunge movement that defined the youth at the time, drawing inspiration from the everyday. Slated by critics at the time, the now-iconic collection made Marc Jacobs a household name.
Despite 16 hugely successful years as creative director of Louis Vuitton’s women’s ready-to-wear on his resume and a namesake label that steals the spotlight at every Fashion Week, Marc Jacobs still draws inspiration from the everyday. The result? Ultra-contemporary designs that merge the spirit of now with couture-like craftsmanship.
