Jacobs spoke to The Telegraph about the upcoming Louis Vuitton exhibit at the Louvre and also shed some light as to why he’s staying at Vuitton.
“It’s a great honour to be considered, and Mr Arnault is a super intelligent man and a very smart man and it was certainly a very great honour for him to know that I was capable – and not only capable but that I am someone that he would have wanted for the job. But I am very happy to be here. There is so much more left to do and building Louis Vuitton into a fashion company is something nobody else can say they really started.”
“I am really happy and I do love working here. I just think there is so much more to do.”
As for whether the final decision was his choice, Jacobs told The Telegraph, “Well… it’s a little bit more complicated than that…but we agreed that it was probably best for everyone.”
