Fashion’s constant state of flux means that few things ever remain, well, constant. For this reason, Juergen Teller’s creative relationship with Marc Jacobs as the shooter of all campaigns bearing some form of Jacobs’ imprimatur is so remarkable. Teller’s raw, intimate, and often comedically irreverent style is the thread running through the various seasons, but the mind meld between designer and photographer has managed to stay interesting and provocative over the course of a decade. Two of Teller’s past MJ campaigns have evolved into books: Louis XV, from his infamous romp with Charlotte Rampling at the Hôtel Crillon for Spring 2004 and Juergen Teller, Cindy Sherman, Marc Jacobs from the Spring 2005 shoot with the artist. But this week, Steidl releases the simply named Juergen Teller: Marc Jacobs Advertising 1998-2009, a chronological compendium of every single ad. Style.com caught up with Teller on his publicity tour to talk about getting dressed with Cindy Sherman, the arc of Marc, and his adventures at the Louvre.
So this book contains literally every single campaign organized chronologically?
We had to cut it down a little bit, but yes. That was kind of important to me that you see the development through the years. It starts with the first, which is Kim Gordon, and ends with Raquel Zimmermann. And it’s basically done as it appears in magazines, like tear sheets. It’s a crisp white page and you see faintly the tearsheet is a bit off-white. You can see that it’s Artforum size and it’s square, or that it’s Teen Vogue and it’s tiny. It’s quite important to me to not take a single photograph out and put it together as some sort of book. I wanted to see it how the consumer sees it in the end.
Phillip Lim, Behnaz Sarafpour, Chris Benz, Band of Outsiders, Costello Tagliapietra, and Erin Fetherston are some of the 28 designers taking legal action against bankrupt Chicago boutique Jake. They may not get their money back, but they’re loving their newfound community. That’s sweet, but we imagine they’d really love a non-bouncing check. [WWD]

Juergen Teller and Marc Jacobs, eleven years and still going strong. The photog revisits the hits from his decade-plus collaboration with Jacobs, from the “hardcore” Dakota Fanning ads to—his personal favorite—shots of a naked Charlotte Rampling. [The Moment]
Included in the Telegraph‘s “ten anti-trends for winter” must-buy classics are the top, the skirt, and the trousers. Why, yes, we were planning on incorporating those somewhere in our fall wardrobe. Thanks! [Telegraph]

Miu Miu opens its doors tomorrow on 57th Street, in Jil Sander’s old digs, with a nearly 5000 square-foot space over three floors dedicated to the label’s sweet-yet-subversive wares. But it’s a sneak preview of images that will be on display on the store’s third floor that may really get the Miu Miu-philes going—and remind them why they love the don’t-call-it-secondary line ever so much. The gallery features morphed photographs from the label’s past campaigns—also seen at the Spring 2009 show—an exclusive group dripping with It-ness that includes Selma Blair, Lou Doillon, Kirsten Dunst, and Vanessa Paradis. It’s an excellent and educational walk down Miu-mory lane—and a reminder of why hunting for the name of the brand’s next face is one of the fashion fluent’s favorite sports. For your enjoyment, here’s a little blast from the past: Chloë Sevigny shot by Juergen Teller for Spring 1996, at left, and the morphed image at right.
