Looks like Marc Jacobs is vying for membership in the Billionaire Boys Club.  

We hear from Hypebeast that Nigo, Japan's king of street culture, and creative director of cult brand A Bathing Ape, has teamed up with Marc Jacobs, artistic director of  Louis Vuitton to design a limited edition cel phone strap. Could there be a cooler pair for a collabo?

In true hard-to-get Nigo style, only 1500 pieces were made, and they were given out as gifts to the lucky ones who attended LV's recent show in Tokyo. You cant buy these things! We havent checked yet, but we're sure you can find one or two on eBay.

We also hear that Pharrell, Nigo's partner in his Billionaire Boys Club fashion line, is going to star in an upcoming Louis Vuitton campaign and be the spokesman for the LV luggage and bags. Pharrell stars in the campaign alongside supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.  His next CD is due out in July.
