Marc Shakes Up New York

Marc Jacobs' voluminous collection caused quite a stir - some liked its direction and some didn't - as the New York shows rolled on.

“I thought it was a brilliant collection,” said Robert Burke of Bergdorf Goodman. “I find it very interesting that so many people want to penalize American shows for making a statement, while in Paris, it would be perfectly fine to do such a show.” Burke added that the Bergdorf’s crew is not “shaking in our boots over what to put in our store. When I go to the showroom, there will be plenty to buy.”

Barneys New York’s Julie Gilhart loved “the story, the music, the set. Marc upped the ante. It’s not American fashion, but international fashion. I felt like I was in Paris, I was so happy.” And in her joy, she did Burke one better: “At 11 p.m., I didn’t want it to end.”
