This article features American fashion designer Marc Jacobs and his spring 2009 collections for Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. According to Jacobs, his creative impulse can be described as invented exoticism. His own collection features dust-bowl cotton prints laced with sparkly Lurex threads and straw hats, while for Louis Vuitton, the designs have a more mademoiselle/mistress take. Fashion is inspiration in Jacobs' hands, the author says.
