Some of my favorite quotes from todayâ€™s Women’s Wear Daily interview with Marc Jacobs, concerning the furor over the now-infamous two-hour wait, accusations of his chillaxing at the Mercer Hotel instead of preparing, and his hinting at moving all Marc Jacobs shows out of New York:
â€œIâ€™m responding to what was written in Womenâ€™s Wear, all those people saying â€˜We have families,â€™ â€˜We have families,â€™ â€˜We have families.â€™ Talk to my sample room. Talk to the 60 women who didnâ€™t see their families for six weeks.â€
â€œI donâ€™t really feel a part of the American fashion community. I really feel like an outsider, I think we all do, and we feel unloved here, so we want to go somewhere else.â€
â€œI donâ€™t take vacations, I donâ€™t have homes all over the world, I donâ€™t ride horses: I f—ing work for a living. Again, this idea, you have a family? OK, well thatâ€™s nice, I donâ€™t, and I work. So leave me alone and donâ€™t come to the show next time.â€
Conclusions: Marc Jacobs needs a hug. And a vacation. And a family. He also needs to send me the following pieces from the Marc by Marc collection, which made me want to cut my clothes asymmetrically, take a trip on a jet-plane and play with Legos, all at the same time.
