Marc Jacobs owns Kidult

Marc Jacobs VS graffiti artist Kidult
Best comeback award goes to Marc Jacobs. Immediately after graf artist Kidult painted on Marc Jacob’s SOHO boutique, Jacobs had the building photographed and turned the image into a shirt. He tweeted“Available now for $689. Signed by the artist, $680”. The New York Observer confirmed that the t-shirt is in the front window and is for sale!

    not quite. kidult made the same shirt and is selling it for $7.

  • I heard kiddult is already sellin his version of the tee at 6.89 eruos …and the mark jacobs is just fake ?… if so kiddult wins! fuck he wins hands down …come on !

    • kidult’s response should have been “see this is how you get an official collaboration with marc jacobs” like he wanted them to make a tee out of it all along. instead he complains on twitter and comes off like a cry baby, he loses.

    No idea why anyone is giving this tiresome wannabe the time of day.

  • Eateat

    Why was Marc Jacobs even “targeted”?

  • This is all just silly.

  • Margarita Iov

    no sense of humour at all, people? I think Marc Jacobs really owned him, haha. nice move. I think this is very much how art should work – trough communication. action, reaction. this is the right ways to do it. take it with some sense of humour. :)

  • Hate this stuff, but he pushes all the right media buttons #lamegraf

  • JamesVendetta

    this is shit, kidult works for jacobs! and this is nice and well studied publicity

  • lepetitfaon

    ahahahahaha, this is sort of amazing, also to be fair the Marc Jacob’s t-shirt is a much nicer color, $680 nicer not so sure, but still, much nicer
