Marc Jacobs leaves Louis Vuitton

Marc Jacobs has announced his departure from luxury brand Louis Vuitton, following speculation on the subject last week. LVMH chairman and CEO Bernard Arnault confirmed the news following Jacobs’ final show for the brand at Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday 2nd October, marking the end of his incredible 16 year tenure, under which the fashion house became the most lucrative in the world. Jacobs’ final show echoed his very first show for the label, but now created entirely in black; a poignant move, which also hinted of nostalgia and mourning. Designs referenced his greatest past works, such as his reconstructed train station, escalators, a fountain, a giant clock and the huge white carousel his models rode on to showcase his SS12 collection. The acclaimed designer dedicated the show to all of the women who have inspired him, including Kate Moss and Coco Chanel, before Bernard Arnault led guests in a standing ovation.
