Marc Jacobs Thinks! About His Thinking!

  • Pin it

As years go by, I openly pray that my mind doesn’t go fluttering. It seems inevitable. Or if it does, it better be out of the public eyes and ears.

Marc Jacobs hasn’t said his prayers for a long time now and look what linguistic, etymological and cerebral mess he’s gotten himself into: (it’s a recent interview he gave to the NYer with Robert Duffy, his forever business partner)

The way my mind works is somebody else has got this so down that they don’t make mistakes and their process is so much more linear than mine. I’ll think that, but, at some point, you know what? This is my process and I don’t know how to do it any other way. I’m sure there are people who can’t afford — who don’t have the luxury of being quite as organic as we are.

I read those lines a couple of times and the meaning of it all eludes me. Is it because I’m not that organic as Marc?

Did he go to the Kaiser finishing school of fashion diction and intonation for a course on how to be fashionable obtuse?
I have no idea what he is talking about and I think neither does he.

I can’t even read between the lines.Marc must surely be OD-ing on those protein bars he eats all day long.
He’s not only lost a lotta weight but a lotta grey matter as well!

I suppose thats what you get when you don’t live in the real world anymore???

I’m just thinking… about Marc’s thinking.. if his central unit is so messed up, how can he be so acclaimed as designer? (oh, yes, I’m preparing a MJ s-s 09 review ;) )
