marc jacobs, kristy + katja for numéro tokyo
by Jeremy Danté
shot by brian bowen smith, designer heavyweight, marc jacobs lands the cover of numéro tokyo’s january issue. appearing for issue no. 43’s cover along with marc are katja bourgis & kristy kaurova of women model management. styled conviently in marc’s own namesake label’s spring collection, the cover reads more catalog than high end editorial publication from japan. while the white studio backdrop is added against the bold tones of the striped jumpsuit & the red draped halter, the image is slightly washed out by the heavy lighting. that said, i still have high expectations for the remained of the issue. it’s always great to see designers being spotlighted for their extraordinary work; in which case marc is so righteously fitting.
