The autumn campaign for Marc Jacobs sees a collaboration with those who have inspired the designer most. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the story...

Instagram was flooded this week with Marc Jacobs' muses, as the designer debuted his Fall '16 collection campaign. Collaborating with Genesis P-Orridge, Missy Elliott, Sissy Spacek, John Carlos Santolalla Tjuta, as well as a few models, Marc Jacobs released the images on Instagram along with a recount of why he's inspired by the '16 cohort. 

Sissy Spacek

On Spacek's picture, titled Gentle Heroine, Jacobs wrote: "I was thirteen years old when I first saw Sissy Spacek's hauntingly disturbing portrayal of the pale, fragile, strawberry girl, Carrie White, in the film, Carrie. I was all-consumed and mesmerised by her ability to bring a character to life in such a way that, for me, was very profound. Sissy's character (that type of girl) is a reoccurring artistic reference in my work. The life she brings to all the characters she has portrayed as an artist is ever expanding, evolving and inspiring. I am so pleased to share this stunning portrait of Sissy by David Sims for our Fall '16 ad campaign."

Missy Elliott

For Elliott, Supa Dupa Fly, Jacobs said: "From the moment I heard, 'The Rain', back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott. Missy's music has kept me and my design team happily energised through countless weekdays, weeknights and weekends during those long hours of sketching, fitting, styling and doing looks. In addition to the boundless energy of her music are the visually pulsating and wildly cartoon-like music videos she made in collaboration with the talented and visionary, Hype Williams. I am in continued awe of Missy's ability to push the boundaries of the style of music both to the eye and to the ear. It was a dream of mine to work with her."
