Sorry about the late post, but I had such a rough week at work and the Saturday has been just about sleeping and chilling for me… Funny how sleeping and resting often seems to me like a total waste of time, as I wish I could get more things done, but anyways, I guess one sometimes needs a rest as well. And since one of my best friends,Simona, is coming to visit next weekend, I just thought it would be good for me to just use this weekend for hibernating a bit and recharging batteries.
So today’s post is about my absolute FAVORITE designer EVER. MJ.Marc.Jacobs. THE BEST.
It’s not because he’s hot or because the has a perfect body. Not even because he’s obsessed with Sponge Bob to the point that he actually has a tattoo of him on his right arm. I love him because he’s one of the most creative designers out there that has managed to be business savvy at the same time showing the world that there is a way to combine the work that you love to do with the things consumers expect from you.
When he joined Maison Louis Vuitton in 1997 as the creative director of the brand, he managed to create the company’s first ready-to-wear clothing line whilst remaining true to his essence as an artist but delivering to Vuitton’s customers what they were expecting and attracting younger generations through the various collaborations with popular artists. One of his latest collaborations, with Yayoi Kusama, has actually been one of my favourites…
Here are some other campaigns, products and photos of his work that I also enjoyed a lot… The Protect the Skin you live in campaign, for example, featuring South Park characters.
Or the Victoria Beckham campaign, which I really loved!
And here is the the latest campaign for his AW12 collection. I thought it was quite cool.
My favorite cover of him on the Interview magazine…
As well as some of the things I still have on my wish list, like the famous mouse flats…
Or this bag from this AW12 collection…
So in case any of you were wondering what would make a nice Christmas gift for me, I guess now you know!
Thanks for reading my blog!
