Instagram filters are used for multiple reasons, from improving non-existent tans to creating mood. Thanks to Marc Jacobs' former boyfriend, Harry Louis, we can add dramatically announcing high-profile breakups to the list.

Louis took to Instagram on Saturday to confirm the couple's split. How did he do so, one might ask? Oh, just with a glass-shattered filter over a picture of the two of them at Paris Fashion Week.

Louis accompanied the photograph with a punctuation-heavy caption, stating, "The distance and lack of time because of work schedules aren't really something realistic." He continued, "We love each other very much, and that it was a decision from both!!!! Every special minute we've spent together will be treasured, and a new chapter of our both lives has started."

The couple had been dating for about a year but have been linked since 2011.
