Marc Jacobs didn’t say much following his Louis Vuitton swan song during Paris Fashion Week. So, naturally, we’ve been waiting to hear him speak out about his bittersweet goodbye from the storied French fashion house, as well as what taking his eponymous brand to the next level entails. In a Q&A with WWD’s Bridget Foley, he revealed all of this and more — with that signature poetic candor of his, of course. Here are some of our favorite excerpts.
All-pervasive photo app Instagram has changed the way we do a whole bunch of things, like eating breakfast to watching fashion shows to… Announcing high-profile breakups.
We hate to see him go, but love to watch him leave.
The term “designer musical chairs” has been thrown around a lot this year, but this latest bit of news, a potential new chapter for the ongoing Balenciaga saga, brings the expression to a whole new level. According to Fashionista, a reliable source has said that Nicolas Ghesquière is in serious talks with LVMH and that the designer will “definitely” succeed Marc Jacobs.
There are actually two reasons we don’t like the cover of the October issue of Vogue with Sandra Bullock.
What do Marc Jacobs and Lake Bell have in common? An infatuation with ink virtuoso Scott Campbell. The designer for the tattoos that adorn his body, and the actress-cum-director because he’s her new hubby/collaborator. The two have both stripped down for the next issue of New York Magazine, with Bell nearly baring ever single inch of her perfect physique on the cover while adorned with temporary ink flowers and Jacobs giving the first up-close-and-personal look at each one of this tattoos—from SpongeBob to Elizabeth Taylor as Martha from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? wearing 3-D glasses (our personal favorite). All of the body art is done by Campbell, of course, who is covered in tattoos himself.
We now exactly how we’ll be spending today’s lunch break: skipping down Bleecker Street to Marc Jacobs’ new beauty shop to snap up some Magic Marc’er eyeliner and Brow Tamer grooming gel (in quest of Cara Delevingne’s thick brows, things have gotten a bit out of hand). Yes, MJ’s first outpost dedicated solely to maquillage is officially open for business, and thanks to WWD, we know exactly what lies inside the 500-square-foot space.
Marc Jacobs loves t-shirts and Miley Cyrus finds most clothing to be very uncomfortable, so this is a match made in heaven. The fash-ON fiend formerly known as Hannah Montana is the latest to get in the buff for Marc and Robert Duffy’s ongoing charity T-shirt campaign to “Protect the Skin You’re In.”
There’s no time like the present to brush up on who’s fleeing to/from which post, especially if you’re thinking about taking the reigns at a billion-dollar fashion house.
If Gwen and Gavin are the cool parents who let their kids eat (organic) Roll-Ups and listen to (inoffensive) rap music, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are the ones who pick them up from school in an Aston Martin and make them eat Momofuku takeout with chopsticks.
This morning, DOMA (the cruelly titled Defense of Marriage Act) has been struck down by the Supreme Court. That means that from now on, it has been deemed unconstitutional to treat same-sex married couples any differently than their straight counterparts. Since this is obviously cause for celebration in the fashion world, take a look back at the weddings, engagements, protests, arguments, and public displays of support we’ve seen in the industry in the past few years.
It might not look like the sunniest situation for those charged with scrubbing down the windows. But repeat opportunist Marc Jacobs is again turning a brush with graffiti into a cold hard cash.
Whether it’s ’60s babydoll eyes for spring or glossy red lips for fall, a Marc Jacobs show offers up equally sublime fashion and beauty. But while the designer has three fashion lines in the works — Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton — he’d left our beauty bags to fend for themselves. Until now, that is.
While we adore Marc by Marc Jacobs, its always exciting when a brand taps new talent. Today, news broke that there will be some major changes at the younger MJ label. Who will introduce us to a new era of chic wares?
In honor of Marc Jacobs’ 50th birthday today, we’re taking a look back at the designer’s most iconic moments. We’ve collected stand-out moments to celebrate Jacobs’ birthday in style, from his infamous grunge collection at Perry Ellis to his instant runway hits to the, ahem, underage model controversy.
Who’s your favorite Irish celeb? Mine’s Sinead. Hey, we might as well get it all out now.
We don’t totally buy that the ladies of the night trolling the streets of Paris are buying their lingerie at Louis Vuitton, but a new promotional film for the brand’s Fall / Winter 2013 collection seems to indicate so.
It’s the last day of Paris Fashion Week, and what better way to start it off than with a livestream of the Louis Vuitton fall 2013 runway show bright and early at 4 AM EST? Well, we’ve got your front row seat right here.
