Again, interview wows me- this time the work of Marc Jacobs in collaboration with Mikael Jansson.
Marc Jacobs appears on the cover of the magazine, which is an ode to the pop artist whose 80th birthday would have been in August.
With a platinum wig atop of his head, the fashion designer is being compared to the eccentric artist; meaning they both cross bred art and commerce, they have a knack for creating playground-like retail stores and look to other artists for inspiration and collaboration.
The founder of the Pop Art Movement, who died in 1987, would have celebrated his 80th birthday this year.
“Warhol is Warhol. He’s practically a god. I thought, ‘I’m going to get a lot of hell for this,” the designer says of his Interview photoshoot. RIP
When asked of the comparison
"I don't think
of myself that warhol.
He's practically a god.
'I'm going to get a lot of hell for this."
the photo — (the work of Mikael Jansson) — will also be imprinted on to T-shirts and tote bags to display in the windows of the designer's Bleecker Street store.
All proceeds from the Marc/Warhol garb will benefit the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.In the June/July double issue ofInterview magazine, a modern-day marvel imitates a pop culture legend.
