Katie Grand styled Marc Jacobs for a spread in the latest issue of Industrie magazine called “Prada, I’m your biggest fan: Marc Jacobs comes out as a Miuccia maniac.” The 10-page spread, Industrie‘s second in which Marc dresses up in womens clothing, shows the designer dressed in various head-to-toe looks from Prada’s fall 2011 collection. Marc, clearly a voracious Prada fan, was shot by Manuela Pavesi, Micciua’s best friend. Quoted in the spread is Miuccia herself: “Of course I like Marc dressing in Prada very much. I think he is very brave and, most important of all, he looks completely acceptable and elegant. He has a real spirit and I like his work.”
A perennial fan of skirts, Marc’s love of wearing Prada womenswear is not relegated to the pages of magazines. “I got through this dreary winter by coming to work each day dressed in Cat-in-the-hat fur boas, striped pencil skirts, hospital scrubs, correctional-facility tops and brogue/espadrille/creeper-style shoes-all Prada. Some men’s, and some from the women’s collection.”
According to Katie Grand, Marc bought two of every skirt from the collection–one for New York and one for Paris. We’re jealous. It’s nice to see two designers supporting each other. Click through for the full spread.
