Marc Jacobs' Polysexual Collection, "Heaven," Is a Grungy, Psychedelic Treat

Providing a glimpse into the Marc Jacobs world.

Marc Jacobs has launched a new collection, “Heaven,” a subversive range of collectible apparel and accessories inspired by what the brand describes as the “Marc Jacobs impulse.” The line, which is polysexual and encompasses any and all gender identities and expressions, draws from past decades including the ’70s, ’90s and ’00s, resulting a delightfully campy mash-up of whimsical prints and grunge-era silhouettes.

A two-headed teddy bear serves as the collection’s logo, and appears on T-shirts, crewneck sweaters and hoodies. Oversized knitwear features graphics including a hand-drawn “crazy daisy” and a still of actor James Duval in Gregg Araki film Totally F***ed Up. Work shirts, baggy twill pants and oversized polos evoke the ’90s skater scene while a collared midi dress, mesh tops and pleated skirts recall Jacobs’ subversive grunge-inspired collection for Perry Ellis.

Complementing apparel is a curated selection of books and media — by creators including Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince and Aphex Twins — that represent the Marc Jacobs ethos. “‘Heaven’ is a world within our Marc Jacobs world,” the designer himself said in a statement. “It continues the momentum that we’ve always had of bringing creative people together and making something with a lot of integrity and a real respect for the spirit in which we built the company,” he elaborated.

Marc Jacobs’ “Heaven” collection ranges from $45 to $395 USD at the Marc Jacobs website. Check out the lookbook, lensed by legendary street style photographer Shoichi Aoki, above, and the campaign by Larissa Hofmann below.
