When it comes to your attire and life in overall, designer Marc Jacobs believes “it’s all about freedom of choice.”
Now, he shares some selections he thinks each woman must make, like owning a polka-dot Louis Vuitton wallet, tailored stationery, and more.
Marc Jacobs has always been fashion’s cool kid—forever adored in an extremely unpredictable world.
The designer celebrates the individual, particularly women with a flair for imaginative, even weird, self-expression. “I’m a bit of an exhibitionist,” he says. “I think some people like attention.’ Jacobs draws on street-style blogs and music (this time, the Oliver! Sound Track) for inspiration.
He’s now supporting a mix of textures, with clothes in patchwork and lame.
Dr. Seuss–style fur hats and bell-shaped skirts that attract the eyes to the hips. “I trust my instincts,” he says. With apparel, he says, and life in overall, “it’s all about freedom of choice.”
So what does Marc say we must all have?
