Marc Jacobs's fiancé, Lorenzo Martone, recently started a boutique PR company that represents models only, with the aim of turning them into slashes. Turns out, he's the perfect person for the job, because he's turning himself into a slash. Martone is working with Bijules jewelry designer Jules Kim on her debut swimwear line, slated to launch next spring. It's unclear whether Martone is helping with design or just marketing, since our tipster reveals only that Kim is working on the line "in development with" him. So hopefully this doesn't just mean he's planning on forcing his models to wear the suits out on the town in the middle of winter for publicity or something. Though a model-slash winter midriff flaunt would probably draw a camera crew from Inside Edition at the least.
