Naar Marc Jacobs nieuwste ‘muze’. De Amerikaanse ontwerper zette transgender regisseuse Lana Wachowski in de spotlights in zijn campagnekiekjes, geschoten door David Sims en gestyled door Katie Grand.

Wachowski kun je kennen van haar regiewerk voor de The Matrix en V for Vendetta. Hoewel haar Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award-acceptance speech in 2012 nóg meer indruk maakte op Marc Jacobs. ‘She expressed thoughts and ideas that have filled my head and heart always but had never been so eloquently captured in language that was so tangible, intelligent, poignant and full of possibility,’ laat hij op Instagram bij de sneak peek van zijn advertentie met haar weten. ‘I found myself referencing Lana's words in my daily life and sharing her speech with close friends.’

De lente/zomer-campagne van Jacobs zal een spectrum van individuen bevatten, wiens foto’s samen een verhaal vertellen. Als een persoonlijk dagboek van mensen die hem continu inspireren en hem ertoe aanzetten om anders over dingen te denken. Zo schrijft de designer uitgebreid in zijn bijschrift. Lees zijn volledige verhaal hieronder:

This season’s ad campaign represents a series of connected events; a visual narrative. It is a personal diary of people who have and continue to inspire me and open my mind to different ways of seeing and thinking. The spectrum of individuals photographed in our Spring/Summer 2016 ad campaign represent a celebration of my America. In collaboration with photographer David Sims and stylist Katie Grand, the people featured in our campaign personify this collection of fashion through their individuality. Collectively, they embody and celebrate the spirit and beauty of equality. It is with an overwhelmingly full heart that I share this first portrait of our Spring/Summer 2016 ad campaign. Lana Wachowski. I was first introduced to Lana via YouTube in December 2012. The speech Lana gave to accept the Human Rights Campaign, Visibility Award, (October 20, 2012) was utterly profound in its script and her articulate, brilliant and timeless delivery. She expressed thoughts and ideas that have filled my head and heart always but had never been so eloquently captured in language that was so tangible, intelligent, poignant and full of possibility. I found myself referencing Lana’s words in my daily life and sharing her speech with close friends. In the days before our Spring/Summer ‘16 fashion show and through a fateful series of communications, much to my incomprehensible delight, Lana accepted an invitation to our show in New York City and thus I took her, “fashion show virginity.” Lana’s ineffable beauty captured by David in this portrait reminds me of the personal sentiment she shared with me about, “learning you can make important friends at anytime in your life.”
