I mean marvel at his art collection! Some more Marc Jacobs for you, Philip Lorca DiCorcia took some gorgeous shots of the designer in his home for W magazine’s November issue. Marc tells Christopher Bagley that despite his position at the helm of Louis Vuitton and his own label he always had an inferiority complex when it came to the art world. Too intimidated to speak to art dealers or gallery assistants he says: "I had in my mind that only incredibly grand, extremely wealthy people lived with art of any sort," he says.
After his recent stint in rehab Marc emerged a fitter, more tanned (and some say suspiciously younger looking!) man. "My interest in art has been very nourishing," he said but it seems old habits die hard: "Typical addict behavior," says Jacobs with a half smile. "I just got this bug. I started going to galleries, and I kind of went mad."
