Making the Marc
Behind all the glamour, colour swatches, fashion sketches and whimsical storyboards is a man who loves a good read — none other than Marc Jacobs, the brains behind Louis Vuitton, his eponymous line and diffusion spin-offs. Jacobs loves books, literature and stationery so much so that he bought a shop on Bleecker Street in New York City and called it — what else? — “Bookmarc”. Check out the curated literature as well as unique items like this set of colour pencils made from recycled wood the next time you’re in the ’hood.
