Vintage MJ in Paris

Another review of the Fall 2010 collection by Marc Jacobs called it nostalgic. Which immediately made me nostalgic for Marc’s first Paris apartment that was also designed by Paul Fortune. Since I have no idea where my tear sheets for it have been filed, I was happy to find that Moodboard had scanned and posted the photos last year. It’s also fun to see how Marc’s own personal look and style has changed since they were published! Some people get better with age and Marc is definitely one of them! I joked that maybe he and his collection look so great this year because he’s madly in love with his boyfriend. But more importantly the fashion world is madly in love with Marc! And I’m in love with his homes!

    Thank you for these wonderful MJ posts. Marc was my first design crush. My first big handbag purchase, my first big designer shoe purchase. I just cannot get enough!

    He is as amazing as his homes.

    I adore the juxtaposition of old and new in the fourth photograph. Delightful.

    Okay so HERE, I believe the LV is not gratuitously staged…

    I am deeply obsessed with herringbone wood floors. LOve them. These pics are gorgeous.

    The photos are gorgeous. His fireplace, mirror and oversized vase – I’m in love them all.

    Thank you so much for this post! I remember cutting these pics out of the original magazine while in high school in Detroit, I’ve since lost them. I was shocked when I was accepted to school in Paris years later and my university apartment was around the corner from Marc’s place. Thanks again!
