Marc Jacobs Goes to Rehab
Marc Jacobs went into rehab today, his business partner Robert Duffy announced, and it’s hard not to feel bad for him. He’s struggled with addiction for years, and it’s a relief to see that he’s on top of the problem this time around. He pulled off fantastic shows in New York (Marc Jacobs), London (Marc by Marc Jacobs), and Paris (Louis Vuitton) last month, and is expected back the second week in April, which should give him plenty of time to get to work on the collections for the September shows. We’ll be waiting for his next chapter. —Amy Larocca
