Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs: A fashion force to be reckoned with. Melanie Rickey. The Independent. 05.26.08.
excerpted text:

"In a talk to Central Saint Martins students in London last week, Jacobs said that the corporate bods upstairs at LV didn't want to do the Sprouse graffiti bags. 'But we just did it. I thought, 'If they fire me, it won't be the first time'. And $300m in sales later, they thought it was a good idea.'" (Melanie Rickey, Marc Jacobs"

"He's made the art/fashion collaboration valid yet enjoyably populist in contemporary fashion." (Melanie Rickey)

"Who cares what the references are? I hate references, they're boring. If a girl wants to wear it, then it's valid. (Marc Jacobs)
