Lauren Tsai x Marc Jacobs: The Terrace House alumni cum illustrator adds fashion collaborator to her repertoire
Those who binge-watched Netflix's original reality TV show Terrace House might recognise the beautiful dark twisted fantasy artwork by Lauren Tsai, that is, when they're not drooling after the dreamboat of a talented artist the 20-year-old is.
Designer Marc Jacobs, who recently joined forces with longtime BFF Anna Sui sure did, as he commissioned the part-time Tokyo-based model to produce her original graphics for a slew of limited edition carriers — the Box bag, the Snapshot Small Camera bag and Pack Shot backpack — as well as a small range of casual ready-to-wear encompassing T-shirts and hoodies.
A complete surprise to most, Tsai teased her first fashion collaboration several days ago on Instagram. "When I was younger I've really wanted to be a concept artist so I always knew fashion was important in terms of storytelling. Once I got into modelling I realised how empowering fashion is," Tsai said in the behind-the-scenes video. Of receiving the big news, she confessed, "I was so excited I hung up the phone I started crying."
We would too, if we didn't manage to get our hands on the Lauren Tsai x Marc Jacobs collection, out October 12.
