    It worked for Balenciaga. I would love to see what he will do at LV.
    Beautiful photos.

    Well, this is certainly a shake up! Although, even without an announcement you can quickly tell from the collection that we are at the END of something. It’s positively funereal! All the models look as though they’re holding back tears. I can’t wait to see what this means for the Marc Jacobs brand. Exciting. Change is good.

    Cher has been doing all of this for decades, with Bob Mackie.

    This looks like MJ trying to be John Galliano and Rei Kawakubo and not pulling it off.

      Spot on. I totally got reminded of Kawakubo’s Comme collection, with the heart cutouts and black ribbons and laces. Somehow it doesn’t work. Jacobs has taken many an inspiration from Kawakubo. And it’s good, but never quite as punchy.

        Agree completely – the first thing I thought was how this show was a rather poor reference to John Galliano’s seminal Fall winter 94/95 collection, then I saw robert’s Cher comment above which perfectly sums it up! It’s derivative and shallow. I greatly admire Marc Jacobs and usually love his work – I have lots of his stuff but all his own label where he’s much freer to create in his own style. So bored of fashion industry conglomerates forcing square pegs into round holes all in the pursuit of $$$ and trying to convince us it has integrity…

    Stefano Pilati or Olivier Rousteing should be the successor.

    I dont see anything exciting or beautiful there, sorry. Just a big circus/cabaret/ gothic showgirls all put together with lots of money . Obviously nobody dare to criticize because LV spend dozens of millions in advertisement.
    Bad taste for bad taste they can hire Hedi Slimane then. At least YSL will rest in peace in his grave.

    So; The Carnival is Over?
    An amazing collection designed and presented by a genius in his element. The show was like a mashup of Marc’s top sets and collections, the return of the carousel, the fountain, the escalators, the lifts, the hotel, absolute genius for closing a very long chapter. I don’t think anyone expected this; Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton was a pairing like Alber at Lanvin, Galliano at Dior or Karl at Chanel. Something that was meant to be. He gave a luggage and leathergoods company real meaning and a spot in the limelight. As for who takes his place, this is difficult. Could LVMH reconsider John Galliano? He has apologised profusely and has set the record straight. What about another American, possibly Joseph Altazurra or the Proenza Schouler boys? I for sure have no idea and am very eager so see who everyone else thinks would be the perfect fit.
    Good Luck Marc!

    Jacobs seems to have wandered a bit off the road of the Vuitton customer, many of whom he brought to the stable.

    A lot of these designers, Jacobs included, seem to be creating what were once costumes for Las Vegas showgirls: feathers, headdresses, mesh panels, sequins, sky-high heels, … I really think Bob Mackie did the look better and Cher wore them best!

    The thing about LV is that Marc Jacob still hasn’t got hold of the brand DNA, sadly til today. It’s either he is paying homage to some designers every season OR the stage decor turns into the main attraction of the show. I know several of LV IT bags but unfortunately I’m having a tough time to spot a LV woman unless she is carrying the monogram bag with her.

      …exactly, he’s been COPYING, stealing ideas from others all the time!

        Sorry; I don’t mean to be rude but…didn’t Marc Jacobs create the Louis Vuitton DNA as far as ready-to-wear goes? The company hasn’t had any other creative director, he has drawn people from every walk of life into the stores and tempted them with amazing things. This is who the Vuitton customer is; they can be anyone, you can’t place them in a category.
