Once upon a time, there was a black and white space that separated the realms of womenswear and menswear…and then there was Marc Jacobs.
During his 16 years at the helm of Louis Vuitton, the designer stood steadfast to his individuality when it came not only to his personal style, but to the aesthetic he brought to the historic French fashion house. And now that he has finally bid Louis Vuitton au revoir after an impressive run, Mr. Jacobs is on to better things. Amongst those aforementioned “better things” is personal investment in his namesake brand.
The days of LV may be in his rearview, but alas, one thing that will remain is Marc’s investment in being one of the most fearless to ever do it. From the most outlandish lace outfits at the Met Gala, to the Halloween outfits that made us do a gender double take, there is no better time than now to celebrate Marc’s versatility.
So in the spirit of joyful goodbyes, let’s bid adieu to Marc in style by celebrating the moments that he made a more fashionable woman than the most fashionable women.
1. This infamous lace number at the Met, complete with the non-matching boxers.
2. When he dressed up in this epic Halloween costume, captured by Terry Richardson.
3. And that time he was the muse.
4. This pink polo dress wasn’t on trend per se, but it works for Marc!
5. More muse movements.
6. Another crotch grabbing good time captured by Terry.
7. When he bypassed the models and modeled his own makeup.
8. And alas, that time he was totally twinning with Anna Wintour.
Keep being you, Marc.
