A unique monograph of over 50 collections created by the fashion designer Marc Jacobs in the past 25 years and illustrated by Grace Coddington.
In 2016, internationally acclaimed designer Marc Jacobs asked his friend and talented illustrator Grace Coddington to select and draw looks from over fifty of his collections dating back to 1993, the year he presented his now-infamous Grunge collection for Perry Ellis, up until his Spring/Summer 2019 collection designed for his eponymous label. Sofia Coppola contributes an introduction, and the illustrations are punctuated with Jacobs's written commentary and a lighthearted timeline of key moments in pop culture. Personal and insightful, this is the first look back on the designer's groundbreaking career: Marc Jacobs in his own words.
