There are few bigger gambles in the fashion world than an unadvertised Marc Jacobs collection sale. Should one get there first thing on the first day? Or should one wait till perhaps the second day? Maybe there won’t be as much merch, but at least the line won’t be that long. Well, when I rolled the fashion dice this weekend I lost big time. Big time! A friend told me about the two-day weekend sale last week. I decided that my strategy would be to let all the Marc-a-loonies get there on Saturday to duke it out for a Stam bag or an upside-down heel stiletto. But I certainly wouldn’t get into the first-day fray. Oh no, I’d wait until Sunday morning to make my pilgrimage down to pick through whatever discounted merchandise was left. Well, that was a bad move. The image here is the scene on Mercer Street at noon on Sunday, when the store opened its doors. (Looks like I wasn’t the only one attending services at the First United Church of MJ.) Since I’m not the sort to wait in line—for a club, a party, a sale—I minced right on by. And as I did, I gathered the best sample-sale bon mot ever: “What are they doing out there?” a confused tourist asked. “Giving out orgasms?”
As first reported on Style File, Kanye West is eyeing a career in fashion, but an internship at just any old house won’t do. It’s Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton, or bust.
Marc Jacobs’ brainchild is here: Madonna’s French bistro-inspired ads for Louis Vuitton are smokin’ and smoky. Check out the spread here.
Eliot Spitzer has a new gig—a columnist for Slate. His new boss sums up the former governor’s job choice as such: “It’s not as if he’s had a lot of other offers.” Indeed.
Paris Hilton is single. Guard your sweaty, unattractive, and very rich men.
Marc Jacobs has been fined a cool million for cajoling, sweet-talking, handbag plying, and otherwise bribing the (now former) Armory superintendent in return for a good booking during fashion week. The New York State Attorney General obviously doesn’t understand the importance of the RTW schedule.
Japan’s latest style denizens are “princess girls“: Think flouncy dresses, ringlets, ribbons, and lots of pink. While trends like these usually start in Tokyo and make their way West, we’re totally crediting Tinsley Mortimer with this one.
