Marc Jacobs E-Commerce Site In The Works

It’s been a long time coming, but Marc Jacobs has finally decided to get in on the e-commerce game. In September, MarcJacobs.com will become an e-retailer, giving us one more stop on our daily fashion lust tour. Even more exciting? There have been hints that the new website will also sell items that aren’t available anywhere else. So yay, more awesome things we can’t really afford! [Elle UK] Keep reading »

Would You Go Blue?

Last time I checked, having blue hair was a sure indication that you’ve passed the prime moments in your life and have officially hit old age. However, pop stars and designers are looking to change those preconceived notions, and now, with their approval, blue hair is all the rage. Marc Jacobs started it off a few years ago, as he dyed his dark hair a hue of electric blue; then Katy Perry took the stage to perform “California Gurls” at the MTV Movie Awards in a vivid blue wig. To round out the trend, Juliette Lewis appeared during a performance in London with a few blue highlights, perfectly matching her Ray-Bans. And, of course, our own Kate has been rocking a rad blue streak in her hair for years. So, what do you say — would you go blue? [Telegraph] Keep reading »

Behind The Scenes Of The Louis Vuitton 2010 Fall/Winter Campaign

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Louis Vuitton campaign for fall/winter 2010, featuring Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova — or, as Marc Jacobs calls them, “three of the most beautiful women, I think, in the world.” The ladies pose for photographer Steven Klein in a faux dressing room done up in old-school Hollywood glamour. There’s lots of ’50s ponytails, retro-dresses, and, of course, bags, bags, and more bags. It’s definitely a return to tailored femininity; punk rock, it ain’t. Makeup artist extraordinaire Pat McGrath makes a cameo. It’s all very pretty-pretty and perfect for those among you who consider yourselves girlie girls. Keep reading »

Lorenzo Martone Tries His Hand At Swimwear

Marc Jacobs seems to be rubbing off on his adorable significant other, Lorenzo Martone, who’s decided to give clothing design a shot. Having spent years working on fashion brands at advertising agency Chandelier Creative, Martone’s no stranger to style and creativity, but the swimwear line he’s creating with jewelry designer Jules Kim is his first go at designing. The label, Nycked, is said to be inspired by Brazil, and it allegedly involves sequins, lacing, and rather large bows. Pics aren’t out yet, but we’re curious to see where this goes.

Quotable: Marc Jacobs Is Tortured, Attracted To Yellow

“I’m as tortured as ever, I see my shrink once a week, have all the same mood swings, I can sit there the night before a show and think, ‘What if they hate it? What if my life is over and I am homeless?’ … But I also have a certain amount of self-awareness at this point, and I recognize all those neuroses are just human. It’s why I think now I am attracted to yellow. It’s positive; it’s the optimistic choice.”

Nothing Sketch About MJ’s Miss Sketchy Laptop Case

Maybe it’s because we’re bloggers, but for us, our computers rank among our most prized possessions. In fact, some of us would even say that our primary relationship is (sadly) with a laptop. To be fair, Lappy can be better than a boyfriend—he keeps you warm in bed, cuddles up with you any time to watch a movie, and is there for you in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep. So, we like to take good care of good ole Lappy McLapperson by making sure he’s dressed up in a swank case, like this Marc by Marc Jacobs denim sheath decorated with a multicolor sketch print. True, the girl illustrated on the cover doesn’t look too happy, but that’s the same look we’d get if Lappy broke up with us. Best to keep a reminder around so we treat him well.

Time Only Has Room For One Designer

Time magazine takes it upon itself to narrow down the 100 most influential people in the world on a yearly basis to create the “Time 100″ list. Along with the requisite world leaders — Barack Obama, Bill Clinton — a few fashion people generally earn a spot for their efforts. But this year, the list includes just one designer, Marc Jacobs. In the issue, Victoria Beckham offers her opinion on Marc, claiming he’s “one of the most interesting and intellectual men” she’s ever known and crediting him with innovative designs and the skill to determine trends. And I certainly agree. After all, the man walks around in a kilt and has fashion editors scrambling to their seats in order to see his shows. My problem is with the rest of the list. Do Robert Pattinson, Lady Gaga, and Simon Cowell really belong on the same level as leaders like the President? I’d argue that designers like Karl Lagerfeld or Ralph Lauren are a great deal more influential than a celebrity who doesn’t know how to wash his hair. View the full “Time 100″ here and draw your own opinion. [Time] Keep reading »

Itty Bitty Marc Jacobs Earrings, Equally Small Price

Oh, Piperlime. You’re like that kid in high school who was really, really cool but nobody knew it. You may not have that uber-trendy edge, but if we dig, we’re always finding cute little surprises. Take, for example, these teeny Marc by Marc Jacobs bow-shaped stud earrings that come in sexy black or virgin (ha, yeah right) white. First of all, it is a proven fact that anything miniaturized makes us squeal with joy. Second, we’ll definitely say yes to some rad MJ accessories for not even a Ulysses S. Grant. (That’s a $50 bill, and yeah, we had to look it up to double-check. What? It’s a Monday!)
