Marc Jacobs' Exhibition Tribute
Marc Jacobs is to become the subject of a new exhibition.
The designer's work for Louis Vuitton - where he has been creative director since 1997 - will be honoured at Paris' Les Arts Decoratifs in a display, which will also pay tribute to the French fashion house's eponymous designer, who started out his career as a trunkmaker in 1854.
The museum's curator plans to showcase two different periods in the label's history - the industrial revolution of the 19th Century and the globalisation of contemporary fashion and it is thought to take place next year.
Jacobs is very proud of his work and recently revealed he will only put his name on things he believes in.
He said: "If we didn't believe in what we did, then I would feel that we sold out. As long as we do things with integrity and believe in them and are passionate, I don't think we've sold out. Whether it's an $11 flip-flop or a $2 key ring or a $2,000 dress, they're all done with integrity. They're all done with a design sense. As long as the creativity exists, then I don't think it's a sell-out. A sell-out is putting your name on any piece of c**p and then expecting people to buy it because it's got your name on it. That's what a sell-out is to me."
