I have been meaning to share this with our readers since last September. Like with many other things, the bad habit of procrastination got in the way… in my own way, rather. However, today feels just right.


I must admit to ignorance, because prior to last September, I did not know of this wonderful French documentary. The title plainly reads Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton and offers the viewer intimate insights into the influential fashion genius that is Marc Jacobs. The setting is timed right before the Louis Vuitton Spring Fashion Show in 2007.

The 80+ minute documentary is a must-see for anyone who holds even the slightest interest in Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs or fashion in general. You learn about what drives Marc, the tedious process of designing a whole collection as Louis Vuitton’s creative director and the business of fashion in general.

Fortunately, the DVD is pieced up on Youtube for your instant viewing pleasure in 9 parts. While it is readily available on YT, I still urge you to order your copy from Amazon though, because a. you’ll get much better quality and b. don’t rob the creators of their deserved sales. It’s a no-brainer, really.

While you wait for the DVD to ship, here’s direct linkage to the nine parts on Youtube. Enjoy and we’d love to hear your feedback below!

    i think that MJ is a genius..and he’s handsome which never hurts ;) I think he really re-invented LV..i love love love the re-editions of the classic speedy – which is timeless on its own – but he always manages to twist it in a fabulous way..and the collaborations with world famed visionary artists complete the artwork! love love love MJ!! I really love (my bank account too!) the fact that his mbmj line is quite affordable yet stylish and cool..as for now i only own a wristlet with “gems” that i adore and bring with me on the fun nights out..let’s hope i can add a family member!!

    LOVED IT… Thank you for telling us about it as I didn’t know. I love seeing any clue towards the creative process.
    Marc Jacobs appears masterful, yet still in touch with his hard working sewing team. Can’t believe how late they are still working on runway items !!!
