I am a deeply superficial person.

Marc Jacobs for Interview magazine's Andy Warhol special issue.

"Marc Jacobs is a fashion designer who's changing the meaning of that job. He does what an ordinary superdesigner does, i.e., create fashion-changing clothes for his own labels and for a great french house, but he also does so much more. His collaborations with Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami, and Richard Prince have shaken things up in both the fashion and the art worlds. Not to mention advertising that looks like art or boutiques that feel like clubs. Andy Warhol used to talk about the best art being business art. And it would be hard to find someone who has done more to apply an artist's thinking to running a creative big business than Marc Jacobs."
