I ALWAYS FIND BEAUTY IN THINGS THAT ARE ODD OR IMPERFECT - THEY ARE MUCH MORE INTERESTING. Marc Jacobs
M A R C
J AC O B S
American born Marc Jacobs (April 9, 1963), is undoubtedly one of the most influential men of his generation. Jacobs was on Time magazine's "2010 Time 100" list of the 100 most influential people in the world,[and ranked number 14 on Out magazine's 2012 list of "50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America". As well as being the head designer of his brand Marc Jacobs and the diffusion line Marc by Marc Jacobs, he was creative director for Louis Vuitton from 1997 to 2013. Jacobs has been praised my many within the fashion industry as one of a kind, Guy Trebay, a critic at The New York Times wrote â€œunlike the many brand-name designers who promote the illusion that their output results from a single prodigious creativity, Mr. Jacobs makes no pretense that fashion emerges full blown from the head of one solitary geniusâ€? (Trebay, Guy (May 28, 2002)
C O M PA N Y P R O F I L E Marc Jacobs operates as a designer and retailer of apparel and accessories for men and women in the United States and internationally. The brand offers ready-to-wear clothes for men and women, leather goods, accessories, fragrances, bags, shoes, and cosmetics. The company, which was founded in 1984 has it's headquartered in New York, New York. Marc Jacobs International, L.L.C. operates as a subsidiary of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton. The diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, debuted in 2000 with a spring/summer 2001 collection for both women and men. Marc By Marc Jacobs has been described by Women’s Wear Daily as “a collection of little treasures from throughout fashion history, each rewritten in Jacobs’s handwriting,” (Wilson, 2000) Everything that Marc Jacobs launches, wether it is a perfume bottle or summer wedges, it has somehow reflects a recognizable style that is appreciated all over the world.
M A R C J AC O B S B E A U T Y In August 2013, Marc Jacobs announced the launch of his namesake cosmetics line. Consisting of nail polishes, eye shadows, liners, mascaras, lipsticks and glosses, foundations, powder and blush, as well as brushes and tools to apply the make up. The line is made up of basic products and seasonal limited edition products. Everything from the product ingredients to the beautifully designed packaging is in line with the quality that the brand communicates. The line is directed at both young adults and adults (aged 22-40), as well as professionals within the fashion and beauty industry, as the products are of a professional level of quality.
S P R I N G S U M M E R 2 0 1 4 The spring/summer 2014 collection is a mix of nudes, reds and bright fluor pastels. What makes the collection special is the unexpected combinations of classics and neons that can be used to create beautiful looks flattering for every skin-tone.
The mystifying vamp gets all dressed up only to stay in. The retro mod breaks out of black and white, looking vibrant in full color. The glamorous starlet dazzles with an undeniable allure. And little pretty demands the spotlight.(marcjacobsbeauty.com, 2014)

Marc Jacobs’ campaigns communicate youth, sexiness, simplicity and freedom. They are usually provocative but classic and simple at the same time. The brand has remained true to it’s recognizable style throughout the years and in many cases campaign photos from a few years ago look in a lot of ways similar to those of todays season’s, despite showing new and different trends. The photos are usually quite straightforward with the advertised product in focus, clean and minimalistic. The above picture is from the 2011 OH LOLA fragrance campaign. The ad, showing young actress Dakota Fanning pose with a perfume bottle, was banned after causing a controversy.
E D I TO R I A L B R I E F The editorial will be shot for a fashion magazine, with the purpose of communicating the collectionâ€™s theme and aesthetics, as well as to inspire customers how to use the products. As said before, the 2014 summer collection os more artistic and bold than the previous collections and can be used to create everything from fantasy make up to classic timeless looks. To accentuate the products, only one will be shown on each spread; bright lipstick on a bare faced model or close up of hands to show off the nail-colors. The photographer/graphic designer will do the post editing of the images and rework them with mixed media (add cut-outs of roses and bright flowers. Styling will be done by Marc Jacobs himself as it is important to maintain the brandÂ´s well known astheatics in all the campaigns. Renowned make up artist Pat McGrath will create minimalistic looks on the model (Charlotte Free).
