Is Marc Jacobs the New Andy Warhol ?


In the last issue of Interview Magazine, Marc Jacobs is compared with Andy Warhol... Let me remind you that Interview was founded by pop-art genius himself.


I don't really believe this comparison is relevant as, apart from being both New Yorker, I don't really see any common points. I love Marc Jacobs, I believe he is a great designer but he's not an artist. He certainly loves contemporary art and has strong knowledge of it, but I am not sure this comparison is accurate. Or I may be wrong ? You let me know.


However Marc by Marc Jacobs know how to play with marketing as the Bleecker Street shop has recently put on sale t-shirts with the cover of the very issue...

You know, I feel like there is this strange need, in today's world, to equate the old with the new: Shia LaBeouf is the "new" Tom Hanks, Megan Fox is the "new" Angelina Jolie... it's actually bordering on madness. We should let Andy, Angie, and Tom stay who they are... these people (even Marc EFFING Jacobs) should have the same opportunities to prove themselves as everyone else.

Good Question... love your blog.
