Today my friends, marks the end of an era. 16 years after launching ready to wear for Louis Vuitton, Creative Director Marc Jacobs announced his departure from the iconic fashion house after today’s Spring ’14 show in Paris. Let’s give credit where credit is due! Louis Vuitton was mostly known for handbags and trunks before Jacobs stepped into the picture. He literally made louis Vuitton the “fashion” brand that it is today. I mean, he single handedly reinvented the designer collaboration!!! Hello Takashi Murakami!!!! I was on a 6 month waiting list for my black rainbow Speedy bag! This really is a sad sad day in fashion:( I absolutely loved how Marc took the reins and ran with them and never looked back or cared what anybody had to say- in turn he helped Louis Vuitton experience their most profitable years to date! Jacobs will focus on his own fashion lines with his “spare time”.
