LA Diary: Has Marc Jacobs Gone Too Far?

Style :

Renowned for his creative Halloween windows, has Marc by Marc Jacobs, on Melrose and Orlando in the West Hollywood area of Los Angeles, gone too far this time? 
The gory figure in a bath of blood, in an apparent murder or suicide scenario, is one of the most shocking displays yet for the brand who are well known for their forward-thinking and creative windows during various holiday periods. There are no signs of jovial spooks or traditional pumpkins accompanying the visual model, which begs the question of the nature or reason behind this year's themed window, complete with blood smeared over the walls and spilled on the floor. 

However, on this occasion the macabre display comes too close to the high-profile suicide of student Tyler Clemente who was sexually outed on video in a severe case of cyber bullying the country has seen. Obviously there is no relation between this Marc by Marc Jacobs window and this tragedy, but it does raise the consideration of timing and taste.
