Former Louis Vuitton designer Marc Jacobs has opened up on leaving the label after a long stint as the head creative director of the luxury fashion house. Jacobs has commented that he sometimes feels a “little scared” about his future now that he no longer designs for the label but he is trying to remain positive and is interested to see where his career will take him:

“Actually, I’m a little scared. I mean it wouldn’t be me if I sat here and pretended to be super confident about everything. There’s a kind of healthy fear that I have – it’s how I operate. On a good day I believe it’s going to be amazing and on a bad day I think I need that other place to hide. But anyway, today I’m in a good place. I think it’s going to be great. I guess there’s a plus and minus to doing the Marc Jacobs Louis Vuitton thing. I loved it and I’ve learnt a lot from living in Paris. I don’t know what the future will be and I’m just sort of like let’s see, let’s see how it goes.”

Jacobs also added that he is very intrigued to see what new designer Nicolas Ghesquiere will create because his design aesthetic is so different to his own. He admits he is glad that the company have enlisted such a good designer who he admires to take over from him. He commented:

“I’ve always admired Nicolas. You know, I’m curious to see what he’ll do you. I mean we have such different aesthetics. I’m just really glad that somebody who I really respect and admire and I think is a great talent is there. I’m just curious to see what he does.”
