16 Years Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton: an overview
After sixteen years Marc Jacobs (50) is leaving Louis Vuitton. To conclude his career the designer presented a greatest hits collection, created entirely in black, which he presented last week in Paris. To look back on his most outstanding work for Louis Vuitton we’ve selected some of his fashion highlights from our TPS-archives (see gallery below).
From his playful to his serious collections, from bright & colorful to monochrome looks, from sexy & seductive models to girls all wrapped up, from long and lean silhouettes to full figure ones, from extravagant designs to minimalistic creations, from large afros to gigantic statement hats and from old school mirrored runways to decors like an enormous carousel, elevators and not to mention the Louis Vuitton express train. Oh boy, did this man take Louis Vuitton for a ride!
And it’s not just the shows that became more impressive every season; as you can see Jacobs himself underwent quite a transformation over the years as well.
In sixteen year the company mostly known for it’s luxury goods and luggage line has become an international powerhouse thanks to Marc Jacobs’ introduction of the brand’s ready to wear line and art collaborations. Nicolas Ghesquière, or whoever is to follow Jacobs up at Louis Vuitton will have a hard time filling his designer shoes.
So like the mood of his last collection we say goodbye to Jacobs for Louis Vuitton with a little grief, but with excitement for the future. The designer genius, or fashion God as some might call him, is to focus more on his eponymous label and we can’t wait to see what he has in viagra canadian pharmacy stores for us next.
