Marc Jacobs Heads Uptown, Lady Gaga’s Shooter Specs, L.A. Fashion Week Gets Put On Hold, And More…


Marc Jacobs, uptown boy? Brand president Robert Duffy is fresh from his honeymoon and back to work, confirming today that the label will open a store on New York’s Madison Avenue, and has plans for a bookstore/retail shop in Hong Kong in the works. [WWD]

Speaking of Jacobs, his contract is coming up for renewal at Vuitton (where Duffy, incidentally, says he and Jacobs are both very happy and hoping to stay). And according to LVMH’s Bernard Arnault, Vuitton is where he’s meant to be. The businessman spoke to Asian Tatler about his selection of Jacobs for Vuitton and John Galliano for Dior: “Take Marc Jacobs, he has been a fantastic success at Vuitton and he has a proximity to the Vuitton spirit, but I don’t think it would have been a success with Jacobs at Dior and the other way around, if I had asked John [Galliano] to do Vuitton, it would not have worked.” [The Cut]

Lady Gaga, woman of many hats, is the creative director of Polaroid. It was in this capacity that she hit the Consumer Electronics Fair in Las Vegas yesterday to debut her and the brand’s new creation: the GL20 Camera Glasses, a pair of shades that can capture and play video and images. [CNET]

Waiting for Los Angeles fashion week? You’ll have to wait a bit longer. In the hopes of raising more money, Fashion Los Angeles, the group dedicated to reviving the California-based week, has announced it will postpone its inaugural run of shows, which was originally scheduled for this February.

Is it model-engagement week? First Anja Rubik and Sasha Knezevic announced their impending nuptials; now Petra Nemcova is affianced to her boyfriend of eight months, actor Jamie Belman. [Modelinia]
