Marc Jacobs tries too hard. It's like the Juergen Teller photographed advertisements for Marc Jacobs. Not one has popped for me. And honestly, I don't think that it shows his work well. And isn't that the point? Yes, there is such a thing as brand. And establishing a point-of-view, but with his ads, I always sense that it's an inside group working together, making the joke, and I'm so left outside of it. I don't think that he intends to have his customer outside of the circle. Or maybe it's meant for his customers to feel like they are a part of it all? I'm always ... like, whatever.
But I can forgive Marc all this because of this:
