Marc Jacobs quotes (16)

I always find it kind of embarrassing, kind of funny, and kind of exciting. In New York I'm recognized a lot, although nobody says anything. You know, they stare at you just a second too long. But in Paris it's not as commonplace to be recognized.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

I don't think, 'Gee, I'd like to dress this person.' There was a picture in Us magazine. It was a jersey dress, and Courtney Love was wearing it. I have this thing about Courtney Love, this funny worship.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

I like spending time at home. In Paris, people drop by and have a bite to eat, or they drop by and watch Friends on TV. I take my dog to the office there, and I walk to work sometimes.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

I love to take things that are everyday and comforting and make them into the most luxurious things in the world.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

I remember walking the dog one day, I saw a car full of teenage girls, and one of them rolled down the window and yelled, 'Marc Jacobs!' in a French accent.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

I said, 'Okay, it's the year 2000, I'm getting a computer and a Palm Pilot.' I know how to check my e-mail, and I've listed some phone numbers on it. Half the time the battery has gone out so I can't use it.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

I think of many people and no one as a muse. I love the way Sofia looks always, and I love the way Kim looks always. Fashion may be part of their world, but it's not their whole life. It's not everything.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

I wouldn't know how to find eBay on the computer if my life depended on it.

I'd like to believe that the women who wear my clothes are not dressing for other people, that they're wearing what they like and what suits them. It's not a status thing.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

It just seemed too weird to me. I don't know, maybe they were smoking a joint in the car downstairs from their parents' apartment. I had to go that far to put together a scenario of how they could have possibly recognized me.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

It's quite nice to see that I didn't have to change who I was to reach two very different types of people.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

Sofia is so active, and she made The Virgin Suicides, which I thought was great - all these things are inspiring to me, not in terms of creating a particular dress, but just in terms of knowing that there is this type of woman out there.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

Sometimes I miss hamburgers, I should say that. I miss the tuna pizzas at Mercer Kitchen.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

Sometimes there are two very opposite directions, and we go with the stronger one at the end. It's an impulse thing, like, 'Oh, I love both so much, but it's got to be one or the other because the two don't work together.'
Marc Jacobs   Category:

That was a time when I did love music, I couldn't get enough of what was going on. Maybe it was Nirvana that brought me back. I guess it was a comfort because something that sounded so right - and non-commercial - had become so influential, so immediately.
Marc Jacobs   Category:

We're developing things, but I don't know what we'll go with for the show, so I don't like to talk about it.
