Marc Jacobs announced on October 2th the end of his collaboration with the maison de haute couture Louis Vuitton after 16 years. Return on the years of Marc Jacobs there and what we have to remember about him & Louis Vuitton.
January 7th, 1997 Marc Jacobs was chosen by LVMH to be the new artistic director. Louis Vuitton was specialized in the trunk at this time and they wanted someone to create a collection clothes for women and men but also a bag collection and accessorizes. It was a big challenge for Marc Jacobs.
Marc decided to show up the monogram and in 1997 Louis Vuitton became “LV” bigger and more recognizable.
Takashi Murakami (mangas kawai) and Yayoi Kusama (multicolor polka-dot) collaborated with the designer to creates new collections and that was totally new for Louis Vuitton.
Like all great designers, Marc Jacobs has his own muse, and those are : Kate Moss, Sofia Coppola and Poppy Delevingne. We remember : Kate Moss walked for the collection autumn-winter 2011 with a cigarette.
For each collection, he impressed us with majestic show. They were unique and amazing shows, that were each year more spectacular. Carrousel and ladies for spring summer 2012, A trip and a train for autumn winter 2012/2013, Art and escalators for spring summer 2013, and Doorman of night for autumn winter 2011/2012.
In his last show as artistic director of Louis Vuitton , Marc Jacobs gathered some of its favorite fashion parade symbols to create his last show. We found the carousel’s clock, the train and escalators.
