Marc Jacobs may be a household name in some circles, but it’s a safe bet that most men have never heard the name outside of their girlfriend’s stories; until now. The A-List fashion designer has reached a new demographic of pub-going, game-night men with his latest non-fashion project, the Vandal Playing Card set. These cards carry the special Marc Jacobs touch of edgy, artistic style.
The usual face cards are distinctively crafted with comical artwork designed to make you laugh. The suit cards are covered with detailed, sometimes graphic images surrounding the diamonds, clubs, or spades. The pattern of the deck is just cartoonish-80s-gothic enough to pass as cool art “vandalism,” hence the moniker. It’s no wonder these cards are grabbing such attention from men who’ve never before had Marc Jacobs on their radar.
