Marc Jacobs Slaps Graffitied Store Photo onto Shirt, Gets Last Laugh

Don’t mess with Marc Jacobs. That’s the lesson graffiti artists should take from a teensy little altercation between Marc Jacobs and the infamous graffiti artist Kidult. When Marc Jacobs employees awoke to a vandalized Soho boutique the morning after the Met Ball, they snapped a few photos before starting to clean it up. But instead of just stopping there and moving on, Marc Jacobs decided instead to turn the whole thing on its head, slap the photo on a t-shirt, and sell it with the caption “Art by Art Jacobs.”

And how much will it cost you to obtain this wearable art? According to Marc Jacobs’ twitter:

Now that’s getting the last laugh.

    It’s an insult – he’s saying it’s worth less if the artist signs it

  • WetcoastBob

    Who owns copyright?  Graffiti artist of course.  Think he will sue?  Last laugh for sure!

    This is why I recommend cinder blocks instead of spray paint for your vandalism needs.

    I don’t get why Marc jacobs Tee’s are this much, they are only 40-100 euro in Milan, i guess this is a really special edition, or else he just wanna get back on the person who did it… :))) hahaha
