Marc Jacobs on Dior and Staying at Louis Vuitton — Interview

Marc Jacobs Says Not Going to Dior "Was Probably Best For Everyone"

>> Marc Jacobs has a busy year ahead of him — one that he says he's happy to experience from his current post at Louis Vuitton. In a recent interview with the Telegraph, the designer shared his thoughts on Dior, his upcoming projects, and more. The highlights, here:

On the recently announced Louis Vuitton fragrance: "Perfume is something I wanted to do here since the beginning, I don't know when it will be launched but we are in the process of working on it — there was a perfume back in the Twenties, a very niche little thing."

On the upcoming "Louis Vuitton — Marc Jacobs" exhibit, opening March 15 in Paris: "It's a really great honor. It's going to be a super animated, really great exhibition. I'm really proud of everyone here, proud for everyone here. As a New Yorker, I love Paris and I never in my wildest dreams as a teenager dreamed I would have a job working for this big luxury company. Now 15 years on, there is this thing at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs at the Louvre — it is really beyond my wildest dreams. It makes me very emotional — in a good way."

On not going to Dior: "It's a great honor to be considered, and Mr. Arnault is a super intelligent man and a very smart man and it was certainly a very great honor for him to know that I was capable — and not only capable but that I am someone that he would have wanted for the job. But I am very happy to be here. There is so much more left to do and building Louis Vuitton into a fashion company is something nobody else can say they really started."

On how the decision was made: "We agreed that it was probably best for everyone."
