Marc Jacobs: Young and Pretentious

And okay, maybe kind of very talented.

Up in Bennington, back in the 80s, our own Glamwire cheif executive Milon Henry Levine was a member of the band “The Parents” featuring midwestern tv star Rich Cronfeld, screenwriter Mathew Weiss, novelist Bret Easton Ellis, and Blue Man Group Star Chris Bowen. One of our most notable numbers was called “I Used To Love You, but Now You’re Young and Pretentious. ” This is how we at The Wire feel about Marc Jacob’s Fall ’07 collection. Marc Jacobs played host to a real panicky, football stadium like scene out there at the armory last night…and the show just seemed to kick forth a totally pretentious vibe. Now maybe that was just because Glamwire staff fotog Cal Rhodes was kicked out of the Italian Vogue area right at the end of the runway (and those alarming Israeli Women from Hatzerim Magazine managed to hold their positions–a note on tenaciousness for sure), but the whole thing looked like some sketches tossed off by a staffer at WWD in 1927. Still, the images do not lie, they do not get uncomfortable waiting for the show, staring nervously at two Israeli women blinking defiantly at end of the runway) there is some heavy duty righteous obvious gift woven into that pretentiousness. Lenny Kravitz, Uma Thurman, Russell Simmons, Patrick McMullen and a slew of other Top Tier New Yorkers also were asked to leave the Italian Vogue area.
