Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton Documentary

A couple weeks ago I wrote about a scene from the Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton documentary by Loic Prigent, and since then I had the chance to watch it. It’s definitely become one of my favorite things this year, I think I’ve watched three times by now. When I watched the documentary the first time I thought it was quite ramshackle, or like there was a lot of randomness. But as I continued watching I realized there was a method to the madness, that all of the random events that happen in Marc Jacobs life contribute to his overall design aesthetic. Like pieces to a very random, but beautiful puzzle.

The film is also rather inspiring, after watching it I always feel energized and like I can do anything. If you’re a fan of fashion, design, or anything artistic I highly suggest getting this movie. I also thought it was cool that Genevieve Gauckler did the credits, which are quite sketchy and random and fun, much like Mr. Jacobs.
