A toast, then, to Marc Jacobs. Raise a 12-ounce aluminum can of your favorite fizzy drink to the American designer for tickling the collective penchant for logos. Tuesday of this week the Marc Jacobs label posted a picture to Instagram of Blanca Padilla wearing a Mello Yello short sleeve sweatshirt of theirs. The sultry shot by photographer Hans Feurer running in the May 2018 issue of ELLE is likely to prompt unbridled enthusiasm in much the same way as a retro logo slapped on a bright yellow article of leisurewear made of 80% Tencel, 20% merino wool would. Fact is, Blanca elicits this feeling in just about everything she does, but focus the light just so, and it goes bonkers like this “High Tide” story. Incidentally, the Marc Jacobs sweatshirt retails in the United States for $450, which is roughly equivalent to 90 12-ounce 12-packs of Mello Yello from retailer Target. Difficult as that choice might be for some, at the sweatshirt is fit for Spanish royalty and will not lead to diabetes.
