Since stepping down from his role as creative director at the French fashion house last month, all eyes have been on Marc to see what sartorial step he'll take next. And now, speaking to WWD, 50-year-old Jacobs has revealed what he and business partner Robert Duffy have in store for his eponymous label.
'We want to do sweaters for dogs and call it ‘Bark Jacobs.’ If it works, great. If it doesn’t, we’ll drop it and do something different', he said. Crikey.
While the comment was spoken in half-jest, we're still fully on board with Marc's dreams of taking over the furry fashion market. 'I never would have thought ten years ago that we’d be doing cosmetics', he continued. 'When we did our first perfume, it was like, “This is crazy; I can’t believe we’re doing a perfume.” I’m open to the possibility of anything.'
With Karl Lagerfeld already dominating the pet market with designer kitty accessories inspired by his treasured Choupette, we predict one serious fashion cat-fight on our hands.
Sorry, we just had to.
