Venetia Scott from the Sartorialist
Venetia Scott--The stylist, creative director for both lines at Marc Jacobs found magazines less and less interesting because of the advertisers' increasing influence over magazine editorials. Luckily, Marc Jacobs sees eye to eye with her that ad doesn't have to be about the product.
Marc Jacob's first ad featured Kim Gordon performing on stage after she was spotted wearing his dress on tour. How about that to start a campaign rather than models walking out in a dress? Since then, his ad campaign has always been more intrigued in what people do than what they look like.
Although the power of advertising forces editorials to reluctantly loose bargaining power-- as seen and disheartened by stylists like Venetia Scott, the boundary of ads and editorials, may just become more and more blurred.
I wonder what Kim Gordon plans to wear tomorrow at the Fillmore, San Francisco.
