Though the Marc Jacobs name may seem ubiquitous these days, at yesterday’s Times Talks session entitled “Designer Leader,” Jacobs told T Magazine editor Stefano Tonchi that he never sought to become synonymous with a specific lifestyle—particularly a manufactured one. “I only ever got into this because I wanted to make some clothes,” Jacobs said. “I don’t have this worldview, this vision of how people live.” But lately, the designer explained, the living’s been good. For one, he was recently engaged to Lorenzo Martone (Jacobs said “definitely no white” for the wedding), and for another, he’s been enjoying life at a less frenetic pace. Mornings now essentially proceed at his leisure. “I like this ritual of being in the bathroom, using skincare products…choosing what skirt to wear.” The kilted host of this evening’s Costume Institute Gala also talked models and muses. “I’m not trying to seek the U.N,” Jacobs said of his runway casting. But, “I love a variety of girls.” One thing he didn’t initially love? His new job at Louis Vuitton, back in the late 1990′s. “I was a nervous wreck,” Jacobs said of his early tenure. Commercial success put an end to that. Speaking of Vuitton, he admitted, “I don’t think there’s anything practical about traveling with a trunk. I think it’s luxurious to travel with just a toothbrush.”
