marc making moves.


wwd is reporting that the f/w 07 marc by marc jacobs show will take place in london instead of new york.

“We have a really nice Marc by Marc business in Europe,” Duffy said. “I always felt when we showed it in the U.S. we would do it the day after, because Marc had to get back to Paris for Louis Vuitton. I always felt bad, because Marc by Marc has such a strong identity but would always get lumped in with the Collection show. I also always wanted to show in Europe.”

the show, to be held on February 16, which would coincide with the opening of the first marc jacobs collection store in london. this is good for london fashion week, which has seen a resurgence of sorts with emporio armani presenting there last season, and some hot designers like christopher kane and giles deacon becoming must-sees.


also in the article, duffy talked about the s/s 07 campaign, shot last month by regular photographer juergen teller and featuring pint-sized star dakota fanning.

“Marc loves her as a character and thinks she is beautiful and a great actress,” said Robert Duffy, president. “He loved the idea of having this young, small girl in the clothes, and we made them in her size to shoot her in.”

i actually think she looks adorable, and marc/juergen/venetia scott (marc’s longtime stylist) took special care not to make her appear too grown up. chalk it up as another quirky and original marc jacobs ad campaign.
