Marc! Is that you?!

Another day another Marc Jacobs post. Jacobs was not celebrating Memorial Day yesterday, but rather gave a talk to students at London’s Central Saint Martins College. And from the sound of it there were glimmers of old Marc, the Marc we all love-not the new muscley, nudist, whoremongering Jacobs.

Here are the highlights:

The battle between corporate and creative: “I don’t understand corporate people — I always say the design team’s on the second floor and the corporate people are on the fifth floor, and it might as well be the distance between here and Mars,” said Jacobs, relating the difficulties of getting his Stephen Sprouse monogram collection for Louis Vuitton in spring 2001 into production, after Vuitton’s management team at the time was reluctant to endorse the reworked logo. “The press reaction to all that graffiti was so amazing…[but] they bitched and moaned, [saying] ‘we’re not going to do it’. I just couldn’t believe it…at the time, that’s how narrow minded they were…[but] $300 million later, they think it’s a good idea!” (Jacobs diplomatically added that those detractors no longer work at Vuitton.)

On Tom Ford (who Jacobs hired to design the denim line Perry Ellis America): “Tom was a different person then…Tom was this very, very sort of haughty, tasteful person, very Waspy…or that’s what he was affecting at that moment. I thought it would be great to do a jean line with someone who has a very sophisticated mind.”

On Creativity: “It’s a daily, weekly, monthly evaluation of whims, I don’t do it all — there are hundreds of talented people who I trust, and who love what we do.”
