Marc Jacobs Casts Missy Elliott, Kendall Jenner, and Cara Delevingne in its HauntingÂ Fall Winter 2016 Ad Campaign.
Marc Jacobs has a reputation for eclectic, casting and the brand’s Fall Winter 2016 ad campaign is no exception. Joining the Marc Jacobs squad for its FW16 season are icons both old and new. The roster includes hip-hop legend Missy Elliott, rock icon Marilyn Manson, actress Sissy Spacek, and supermodels Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner.
The campaign, photographed by David Sims, evokes haunting, dark vibes. Aligning with the grunge, post-rock aesthetic of the Marc Jacobs Fall Winter 2016 collection, the imagery is moody and cinematic. Each one of Jacob’s muses adds a unique layer of intrigue to the campaign. Jacob’s, himself, shared his thoughts on each of the campaign’s muses via the brand’s Instagram account. See what Marc had to say about Missy Elliott below.
“From the moment I heard, The Rain, back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott. Missy’s music has kept me and my design team happily energized through countless weekdays, weeknights and weekends during those long hours of sketching, fitting, styling and doing looks. In addition to the boundless energy of her music are the visually pulsating and wildly cartoon-like music videos she made in collaboration with the talented and visionary, Hype Williams. I am in continued awe of Missy’s ability to push the boundaries of the style of music both to the eye and to the ear. It was a dream of mine to work with her and I’m happy to share this portrait by David Sims for our Fall ’16 campaign.”
