Jacobs recently revealed that the legendary hip-hop artist and producer as his latest muse for his Fall 2016 campaign, which was the recent gig of budding superstar Willow Smith. ea4ea9fdb7c08ece20641f83e3441ee7“From the moment I heard, The Rain back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott,” he captioned the Instagram post. “Missy’s music has kept me and my design team happily energized through countless weekdays, weeknights and weekends during those long hours of  sketching, fitting, stylin and doing looks. In addition to the boundless energy of her music are the visually pulsating and wildly cartoon-like music videos she made in collaboration with the talented and visionary Hype Williams. I am in continued awe of Missy’s ability to push the boundaries of the style of music both to the eye and the ear. It was a dream of mine to work with her and I’m happy to share this portrait by David Sims for our Fall ’16 campaign.”
