Besides recently opening a store called Bookmarc, Marc Jacobs has also been busy putting together a book. Deemed The Men + Women of Marc Jacobs, it's a photo essay featuring shots of over 150 employees, photographed by Brian Bowen Smith. According to the forward, written by Francine Prose, "What these pictures give us is the family album of what may be — what probably is — simply the coolest and the hottest rainbow family on the planet."
This project started over three years ago when Smith accompanied Jacobs on his business trips and various store openings and randomly snapped the staff. The designer makes a cameo, too. "It's not about Marc's clothes. There's a whole book out already like that. It's called a look book," Smith said. Sweet.
