How Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs changed the fashion world

Sally Ashley-Cound,

Two men in particular have changed the face of fashion while at the same time creating functional and beautifully designed pieces: Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs.

In this video, we find out more about the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition in Paris, the home of the largest Louis Vuitton flagship store on the Champs-Élysées and explore what makes these two men special and crucial to the French design house’s evolution. 'It's so exciting because it's the link of tradition and modernity, because it starts at Louis Vuitton as the creator of the house and arrives at Marc Jacobs - it's fantastic' says Anna della Russo, editor of Vogue Japan.

The exhibition at the Louvre’s Arts Décoratifs charts the designs of Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs, who, 143 years apart, ‘have changed the course of fashion history,’ says Pamela Golbin, the show’s curator. 'Marc [Jacobs] came and introduced so much to Louis Vuitton and played a very essential part in what it is today,' model Natalia Vodianova adds.

‘I very much wanted our part of this exhibition to be about an experience, experiencing what we think about when we’re creating, different references, ideas and inspirations,’ explains Marc Jacobs, creative director of Louis Vuitton. Watch the video above to hear more from Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow and get a sense of the exhibition, which is open until 16 September.
