Making My Own Marc

A yellow purse is shown next to another one.

We know that many designers gather inspiration from the past and Marc Jacobs is no exception. If you watched the documentary, “Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton“, you’d see Jacobs sourcing vintage patterns and fabrics as part of his creative process for a then recent Louis Vuitton collection.

This is nothing new, as he has consistently used the same method for several of his own collections, from grunge to mod inspirations. This technique has obviously worked in his favor, because people have come to love the idea of wearing “vintage”. Though, in reality, most hate shopping for it and Marc has made it easy for them. The only downside, there is a convenience fee and it’s usually not cheap.

As much as I love Marc Jacobs, I can’t fathom paying over $200 for anything in my closet(at this point in my life), so I am forced to scour thrift stores and garage sales for my vintage. Lucky for me, I’m in the minority, I actually enjoy doing it, which is how I got my own version of Marc Jacob’s, “Little Stam”.

Of course, I would rather have MJ’s more detailed, vintage knockoff, but I’ll settle for having an $392 extra dollars in my pocket.
