12 Insane Pieces Of Art From Marc Jacobs’ Immaculate Collection

Just a Damien Hirst here and a Richard Prince there. NBD.

1. Graffiti


PRICE: Free. And actually, this might MAKE MJ money.

The backstory: In May 2012, graffiti artist Kidult spray-painted “$686” on Marc Jacobs’ New York City store. In response, Jacobs — a huge art lover — photographed the art and put it on tees, which he sold for $686. This week, Kidult tried to pull a fast one on Marc again, spray-painting $686 on Jacobs’ Paris store. Marc might just keep this work on display if not also turn it into tote bags or something.
