Marc Jacobs turns a graffiti prank into a $689 t-shirt
Last week, graffiti artist Kidult--who is known for tagging up the storefronts like colette, Louis Vuitton and Supreme--made his mark on the Marc Jacobs Soho store. While everyone was chilling at the Met Ball, Kidult painted 'ART' in huge, spindly pink letters across the front of the shop. But unlike his other victims, Marc Jacobs enjoyed the prank--first tweeting about it, calling the work "Art by Art Jacobs" (Kidult responded to tweets in his own way, tweeting a picture of the store front clean up) and now, by making a t-shirt out of it.
The 'Art by Art Jacobs' tee which features a picture of Kidult's work is selling for $689 at Marc Jacobs. We wonder if Kidult is upset his anti-capitalism graffiti is being turned into a marketing ploy? Or if he is thinking "touché"?
It does appear Kidult will have his own versions of the shirt available for purchase this Friday via his website.
