Les Arts Décoratifs to host exhibit in honor of Vuitton & Jacobs
Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris is hosting an exhibition dedicated to Louis Vuitton next year. The museum's curator plans to showcase dual periods in the House's illustrious history animated by two of its key figures: its namesake who started out as a trunk maker back in 1854 and Marc Jacobs. Jacobs is very proud of his work and recently revealed he will only put his name on things he believes in. He said: "If we didn't believe in what we did, then I would feel that we sold out. As long as we do things with integrity and believe in them and are passionate, I don't think we've sold out. Whether it's an $11 flip-flop or a $2 key ring or a $2,000 dress, they're all done with integrity. They're all done with a design sense. As long as the creativity exists, then I don't think it's a sell-out. A sell-out is putting your name on any piece of crap and then expecting people to buy it because it's got your name on it. That's what a sell-out is to me."
