30 FOR 30: DOING WHAT THEY LOVE AND DOING A LOT OF IT

Congratulations to MARC JACOBS and ROBERT DUFFY on 30 Years!

By Anita Marie Antonini

Fall 2014

You could say that MJ is in my DNA. I met Robert Duffy and Marc Jacobs in 1985, and it was love at first sight. I went on to work with them for many years through the several incarnations of Marc Jacobs. Back when it was just the three of us plus the sewing room, everything was very hands on. I can still vividly see Robert Duffy building the runways in our humble showroom and Marc hand-painting daisies on shoes that he found on Canal Street. Not much ever changed on that front: the talent, the dedication, and the magic.

A more recent memory is from last summer, while doing what I call “The Bleecker Street Shuffle,” I happened upon RD in the MJ Beauty Store overseeing every detail before its pending opening. It was impressive, just as hands on as they had been in the early days.

On the occasion of the 30th Anniversary of Marc Jacobs International, PMc Mag decided to take a trip down memory lane through 30 photos from the Patrick McMullan Archive. This comes from a place of admiration for MJ, the beauty of imperfection, Wallflowers everywhere, and the Little Edie Beales of the world who are both honest and eccentric.

So please enjoy with us a look at our 30 for 30, as we say congratulations to Marc, Robert, and the entire MJ family–you know who you are–all those involved with the brand, for the beauty, joy, and inspiration that you’ve made such a huge part our lives over the years.

Cheers to the future…
