Marc Jacobs is back with a new campaign for his Fall 2016 collection, and it is filled with several stars and models including, Missy Elliott, Sissy Spacek, Grace Bol, Ally Ertel, and several others.

He posted an explanation on Instagram explaining why he chose each person to be in his campaign, stating:

“The individuals in these photographs represent a collective embodiment of love, honesty, integrity, courage, strength, curiosity, and inspiration.” He continued, “Together, as one story, this collection is a reminder to question and challenge normal and to continue exploring and pushing boundaries.”

The fashion icon loved working with Missy he said:

“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, styling and doing looks,” he wrote. “I am in continued awe of Missy’s ability to push the boundaries of the style of music both to the eye and to the ear.”

“MISSY, Supa Dupa Fly From the moment I heard, The Rain, back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott. 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, styling 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 to 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.” -@themarcjacobs • Photographed by David Sims Styling direction by @kegrand Casting by @bitton Hair direction by @guidopalau Makeup direction by @diane.kendal Nails by @jinsoonchoi Set design by @stefanbeckman #MJFW16
