BEST IN SHOW

With his unmistakable bow-legged stance, beady black triangle eyes and ear-to-ear grin, Neville Jacobs is one of the most recognisable and beloved figures in fashion today.

BEST IN SHOW

Nicolas Newbold is the man who made the book about Marc Jacobs’s dog. And, yes, he knows how crazy that sentence sounds. “Sometimes I think
this whole thing is very Best in Show,” Newbold says. 
“Neville’s book launch was Best in Show in all the horribly right ways. Neville was signing books with his paw! And I was like, What am I doing?”

As a photographer and Jacobs’s New York studio manager, Newbold is involved in almost every aspect of the style empire, while also caring for Neville, Jacob’s pit bull terrier who has more Instagram followers than most humans get in 10 lifetimes.

Newbold started Neville’s Instagram years ago, but never expected 194K people to follow. “The idea of it was obviously a joke,” Newbold explains, “but I noticed how happy Neville made people, so we kept it up. There’s a real joy in it.” On Instagram, an average week might see Neville gear up for sweater weather, snuggle with supermodels, and paint his nose for Pride. The taste and tone is all Newbold, who weaves the posts into his daily schedule and often riffs off human social behaviour: “Sometimes I’ll go through and post Neville’s puppy photos, because who doesn’t go through their phone and be like, I want to show the world that cute picture of me as a kid?”

PACK OF DOGS

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound? That’s exactly what San Francisco-based artist Michael Gillette has done through his unique illustration project, blending beloved, iconic music legends, both past and present, with their dog counterparts. Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.
