I'd love to chat about Marc Jacobs here. I just find him so trend setting and innovative. I live in the West Village, NY and I'm surrounded by his stores and now his new bookstore - Bookmarc.
Who admires him?

He saw the irony, but how many of those who buy it do?

Well,
Like him and his work or not, he is a designer with significant relevance to contemporary fashion.................I think there can (and should be) are reasonable discourse about his work and what in means to today's fashion in general. regardless of whether we like/ wear his type of clothing or not..........

his art collection / market savvy is actually very impressive. considering this is from 07 and i have no idea what he paid but all of those currin and prince paintings easily go for well over a few million each

i looked up the bra shop in the currin gagosian catalog from 2006 and it's listed as private collector (marc). it's never been on auction and i assume he paid a premium through a gallery. hammer prices were under 500k for most currin paintings during 2002, but this is one of currin's more iconic pieces. the highest auction price in 2008 broke 5 mil. i wouldn't be surprised if the bra shop matched or topped that figure today..

would be amazing if marc bought all that with an lvmh stipend..

the prince nurse paintings were 80k retail in 02 and were difficult to sell at retail. in 04-05 themarket exploded
Iirc they were 2.2 mil in 08 and one went for 6 mil this year. they became his most prized work.

I believe JACOBS has sort of talent in marketing, socializing and campainging, that is maybe what I admire

PS. big name brands do not need a designer to design

no one can deny his talent even though it can be hit or miss each season depending on where his head is at...

still, fall 2006 is one of my favorites from him. grungy, urban with the right amount of funk. i pull from that often as soon as the chill hits the air.

it's that beautiful thing called 'provenance' at work... just the fact that [insert influential tastemaker here] has owned a piece of art, will raise its value. forget fashion industry - the modern art market is the biggest scam of all.
