Quote of the day: Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs by Irving Penn 2001

“A younger audience seeing things with fresh eyes isn’t looking for origin or reason. I always looked for origin. I wanted to know where the Adolfo tweed jacket came from. It came from Chanel. I wanted to know where the Chanel one came from. It came from a fisherman. I loved that. It was part of the seduction of anything. How did these things come to be? How did these symbols get substance? It’s because they came from something genuine. Everything came from somewhere.”

Marc Jacobs talking about the need for context in Vogue, reminds me of Miranda Priestly’s cerulean blue monologue in The Devil Wears Prada. (And every conversation I have with my fashion lecturer friends…)
