Marc Jacobs has been called many things: Genius. Pioneer. Original. Exhibitionist. And, it's no wonder — the man is synonymous with style. His show, season after season, marks the pinnacle of New York Fashion Week and points in the direction of things to come.
Even outside of show season, Marc continues to evolve and delight: In the past few months, he’s acted in his first film, worn the same women’s Prada coat as Anna Wintour (to the same event!), been named creative director of Diet Coke, and designed costumes for a virtual opera.
But, Marc is also just Marc. We spoke to 13 of his muses and longtime collaborators — from Kim Gordon to Guido Palau to tattoo artist Scott Campbell — to tap into what makes the man, the myth, the legend, tick.
