The Grand Exhibit
What do you think of when I say Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton? The Musée des Arts Decoratifs located in Paris likely may not come to mind. However, it most certainly deserves recognition. An exhibit that opened on March 9th, which is coincidently called ‘Louis Vuitton-Marc Jacobs’, is set to be two floors, each dedicated to their individual lives and work.
The exhibition will include the ever fashionable Vuitton merchandise dating all the way back to the beginning in 1869. While their will be many works from Louis Vuitton himself, the exceptional works of Marc Jacobs will also be a grand attraction.
The show opened the night of Louis Vuittons’ show in Paris Fashion Week, which was also the last show in Paris Fashion Week.
Marc Jacobs was quoted in the Telegraph as saying, “I never in my wildest dreams as a teenager dreamed I would have a job working for this big luxury company. Now 15 years on, there is this thing at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs at the Louvre- it is really beyond my wildest dreams. It makes me very emotional- in a good way”
Aside from an exhibit, it is also reported that they are opening their “first stand-alone” jewelry store and including a new fragrance to their multitude of successful lines of merchandise.
Marc Jacobs also said, “ I am really happy and I do love working here.”
Jacobs does have some work ahead but it seems that he is right where he needs to be, right next to fashion icon Louis Vuitton.
