Styled by Katie Grand

Over the years, Katie Grand has bought herself a fair amount of Marc Jacobs womenswear. Her collection now stretched to several rails of clothes and boxes of shoes, big enough, Jacobs reckons, to rival his brand’s own archive. By curious coincidence, both Jacobs and Grand are not dissimilar sizes. So when it came to finding a model for this very personal Marc Jacobs retrospective, who better than the man himself?

Marc pulled on one of the coats, put his hand in the pocket and found a Louis Vuitton Murakami phone charm that I must have been carrying the last time I wore it. He gave me a funny look and said, “I’m actually wearing your clothes. This feels a bit weird.” - Katie Grand
