American designer Marc Jacobs set the tastemaker's bar pretty high, and this fact is well known for all generations. Some, in particular the Millennials, knows him as the leader of his namesake brand-child. Others still remember his long-term career in Louis Vuitton fashion house at the post of brand's Creative Director. However, his most recent wave of fame started a couple of years ago with the help of *******, which brought him endless admiration among his new audience called Generation Z. But first, let's come back to the very beginning of this story.
Through the late 1970s to 1980s, future eminent designer was the graduate of the High School of Art and Design and New York Parsons School of Design. That was a young boy in his twenties with the full head of hear, who could be easily mistaken for the leading retro band singer. Since the 90s, his image began to change: long hair, baggy sweatshirts, and grunge style, all very much, by coincidence (or, maybe, not), reminiscing rock idol Kurt Cobain.
Then comes the Louis Vuitton era. For some time, Marc Jacobs turned into the smart-casual designer, thinking of not very much sophisticated outfits. It was the relaxed guy, posing next to his close friend, the movie director Sofia Coppola. It was Marc, just like on the photo in his navy LV cap: one sees a very reserved and intelligent-looking Creative Director of luxurious Louis Vuitton.
The major transformation hit the headlines of the newspapers in the middle of the 2000s. Nobody at first could recognize in the half-naked macho with the lean torso two previous Marcs from the 90s. He started taking part in the provocative photoshoots without a second thought, got dressed into the typical James Bond's smoking (and got photographed with the same kind of flawless agent 007 companion-ladies Kate Moss and Emily Ratajkowski). Although, from time to time, one could spot Marc in the Scottish kilt- skirt while walking along the street with his present-day husband, Lorenzo Martone. Those were the nascent hints to the forthcoming Marc.
Finally, the 2010s become the birth moment of contemporary Marc Jacobs, as he has been for the whole decade. Thanks to modern technologies, the world immediately got to know his gender-fluid outfits. Jacobs stands firm by his belief that all clothes should be neutral-gender. He proves by his example that iconic Chanel bag or transparent Comme des Garçons tunic could be worn over the men's white boxers what will look not less sexy than over the lingerie. Marc's favorite accessories are massive hairpins and pearl necklaces that the designer matches with colorful jumpers, leopard-print coat, or sport-like T-shirts. He looks stunning even in the quite high-heeled boots, dreamingly contemplating the Central Park.
However, the designer wouldn't miss a day not to show out without make-up. It is another integral part of Marc Jacobs' identity: a beauty influencer. Just follow the "themarcjacobs" ******* account and keep up with all the latest overtones of glittering creamy eyeshadows or find the best-matching hue of the nail polish. You might even watch one of the designer's vlogs to master the art of drawing flawless eyeliner arrows.
