Hey, come up with your own ideas for a collection mr Jacobs!
The Fall collections ended today as they began nearly a month ago, with Marc Jacobs in arch provocateur mode, exploring and exploding the meaning of fetishes. In New York, the designer sported a latex T-shirt under his button-down; in Paris at Louis Vuitton, it was a miniature plastic mask of the sort that decorated the models’ hats—peaked caps in the manner of Charlotte Rampling in The Night Porter. Backstage, Jacobs explained that the fetish idea came from a conversation with LVMH’s Bernard Arnault about women’s “inexplicable” (his word, not ours) obsession with bags. “And that got us started thinking about passions, and any of the disciplines that require effort and work and commitment,” he said.
