Marc Jacobs x Interview – Designer Marc Jacobs recently sat down with Interview Germany’s Adriano Sack for an intimate conversation covering everything from art to his designs and personal life. Below are a few select quotes from the chat, but you can view the entire video under the cut.
“There was a sweater we were looking at the other day and I really didn’t like it. And every time I see it I cringe. But then you know, sometimes you have to close one eye and just do it.”
“I envy the people who go to Paris the first time…Nothing can ever be the same as it was the first time.”

The Mad Hatter – For fall 2012, Marc Jacobs teamed up with milliner Stephen Jones to help envision his latest collection filled with oversize and floppy hats that could easily belong to Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter. Playing with the fairytale theme, Jacobs offered a fantastical play on proportions in the form of bulky skirts and jackets layered expertly for the autumn season. The color palette was steeped in moody hues with accents of gold, powder pink and lilac. Patterns ranged from paisley to floral which broke up the heavy silhouettes with levity. The show ended on a more subdued note, featuring a few pared down ensembles that lengthened in hemlines and flattened in shape.
