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!

      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.

    Why was Marc Jacobs even “targeted”?

    This is all just silly.

    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. :)
