Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs stores are participating in Fashion's Night Out, but the designer himself told us on Saturday at the after-party for My One and Only in East Hampton that he was unsure of his Fashion's Night Out plans. The event occurs on the first night of Fashion Week, which only adds to the typically massive Fashion Week stress. Was Jacobs looking forward to Fashion Week? "No," he replied. Was he looking forward to seeing any shows? "No." Does he enjoy Fashion Week at all? "Enjoy? Enjoy is a weird word. It's work — work is more what it's about." So it's not fun? "No."

But fun things are on the horizon! Such as his wedding to Lorenzo Martone, which he promised will happen "soon." Don't expect a big affair: "[The wedding will be] very quiet, just the two of us. We're keeping it very simple." Jacobs added that no friends or family will attend the ceremony in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Unlike many in his industry, he doesn't frequent the Hamptons. "I haven't been here for years," he said. "We just got here today, so we're just hanging out at Larry [Gagosian's] house. It's just me and sunshine and good times."
