The World According to Harry: An Open Letter to Marc Jacobs

Dear Marc,

I am a big fan of yours. I adore your taste level. However, I do wish I was old enough to see that infamous grunge collection that got you fired from Perry Ellis. I was only two years old when that happened.

Nonetheless, I love the way you promote yourself to the mainstream. You are the only fashion designer who made it to Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People — right under Sit Elton John in the “Artist” section.

I remember when you started hitting the gym in order to transform from an adorable geek to a buffed, ex-male model type. You’re like a good wine — you improve with age. You’re getting ‘younger’ as you age — just like your backwards Spring 2008 show in New York which was two hours late:

When you dated that guy, Jason Preston, I was like “what’s his job?” Honestly, I never found out. When he tattooed your logo on his right arm, I knew he was not for you. Then, you met Austin and everyone immediately knew he was not for you.

Then, there was Lorenzo Martone. He’s not as bad as the previous two. I thought you guys were so sweet together. It’s proven by your engagement. I was so happy for you! One day, I woke up and read a tweet from The Cut Blog that you and Lorenzo were no longer together! I was very shocked. But then, none of you guys confirmed this issue yet. So is it true or not?

I would say, learn from Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler. They’re so cute together! If you’re not with Lorenzo anymore, next time please find someone your age.

I just want you to be happy.


P.S. Feel free to name a bag after me.
