“I’ve always said that the DNA of a house is a based on the personality of the founding designer. Mr. Dior was really mean, and the house is still mean. Chanel was crazy. At Louis Vuitton, there was no fashion, only bags, so there was not this big ghost over them. And Marc Jacobs has nice DNA. He works really hard—too hard, maybe.”

-Loïc Prigent, speaking earlier this week at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology about his 2007 documentary Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton. Next up for the French filmmaker (Signé Chanel, The Day Before) is a look back at Yves Saint Laurent‘s final haute couture show. “I’m doing the interviews now,” said Prigent, “and everyone is crying.”
