Marc Jacobs Interview with Bergdorf Goodman

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

How would you describe your
MARC by Marc Jacobs Fall collection?
The collection has an early 80’s punk/club vibe.
This season we were playing more with the idea of dress-up rather than a casual/street look.

And your favorite fabrics?
My favorite fabrics are in bold patterns of stripes, checks, plaids, and oversized houndstooth
patterns. Fabrics are often bonded to give more
of a sculptured shape, which adds to their impact.

Favorite trends for the season?
Bold and graphic shapes, patterns and volume.
Your color palette? Black, grey, bright yellow,
green, electric blue, and hot pinks.

Tips on wearing your designs?
Always put yourself together in a way that sounds
good to you!

The shoe for Fall?
Low heeled boots with zips and buckles –
they make every look, look cool!

Describe the cuts of your coats and jackets?
The coats and jackets that feel freshest are roomy, larger shapes– from the oversized “boyfriend” type
of jacket to the double-breasted, low armhole
poncho-like cropped coat.

Evolution of your design philosophy?
As part of a group of designers, we are all as passionate about change in fashion as ever…
we trust our whims, and maintain integrity in our approach to make stylish clothing for now!

The 5 most-played songs on your MP3?
– Sonic Youth: Kool thing
– TLC: No scrubs
– Jay Z: Big Pimpin
– Amy Winehouse: Tears dry on their own
– White Stripes: Fell in love with a girl

Favorite smoothie: for the taste or the color?
Raspberry for both taste and color.

What does modern means to you?
Interest and curiosity in and about all aspects of
culture and life today.

Favorite tattoo?
My “couch” tattoo.

Biggest pet peeve?
“In & Out” lists.
