More Harmony Korine for Marc Jacobs

Early last month I posted the news of Harmony Korine being the new face of Marc Jacobs, and it looks like he still is, as I came across a new ad pairing. The new ads feature him and a little girl, one with her holding the flower, and one with him smelling it. It’s completely simple, totally beautiful, and has nothing to do with clothing at all, but helps build the image that the brand itself represents.

It feels to me like Juergen Teller gets to have a mini gallery placed in all of the biggest fashion magazines. They’re just art as this point, and Marc Jacobs foots the bill for it. I also like Harmony Korine a lot, so that helps as well, but it’s always nice to come across pretty images like this in the beginning of a magazine.
