It’s a terrier’s world, we just live in it

From the Bark Jacobs dog line

Marc Jacobs is the most influential creative voice in luxury fashion today. As creative director of Louis Vuitton, the world’s largest luxury goods company, Jacobs oversees the studio that in the last decade has produced sumptuous and witty versions of the classic Vuitton monogram handbag – like the denim jacquard one trimmed in chincilla – that have sold by the millions. Yet Jacobs sees what he does at Vuitton as the antithesis of luxury today. “The way I define luxury isn’t by fabric or riber or the amount of gold bits hanging from it,” Jacobs says, sitting in his Paris office, sucking on his umpteenth cigarette of the day as his bull terrier Alfred gnaws on a soup bone. “That’s an old definition. For me, luxury is about pleasing yourself, not dressing for other people.”
