Kidult Takes Aim at Marc Jacobs – SoHo Store Vandalized Overnight
Last night while the glitterati of the fashion world were at the Met Costume Gala, Paris-based graffiti writer Kidult prowled the streets of SoHo finding his latest target. Kidult is notorious for vandalizing boutiques, blasting their storefronts with fire extinguishers filled with paint. Past victims include Christian Louboutin, Hermes, Celine, Kenzo, Louis Vuitton, Agnes B. and Supreme.
Marc Jacobs retail associates were shocked to find the word “ART” written across the store this morning and quickly scrambled to wash it away. Known for their social media saavy, the official Marc Jacobs twitter tweeted a photo with the caption “Art by Art Jacobs” not knowing it was actually the handiwork of Kidult, who tweeted a photo of his own with the caption “I did some ART?”
