Apparently rehab is the new black. With everyone and their mother checking in this season, rehab has become the trendiest thing since skinny jeans burst onto the scene. And now, after a reported seven years of sobriety, Marc Jacobs has hopped on the rehab bound bandwagon. Again (this is his second time aroundâ€¦he really is a trendsetter, Marc was doing the rehab thing in the 90â€™s). One day after showing his 2007 collection in Paris, Jacobs collapsed, and immediately signed himself into a treatment facility in Arizona.
As with most addicts there were telltale signs of imminent relapse, and itâ€™s all starting to add up. That awful green runway from his Spring 2007 show really should have tipped us off that something was not right, and the bloomers/metallic cap/granny sweater combo was an obvious cry for help, that we all ignored in the name of couture.
We can only hope that Marc will work his program, make amends to those he has hurt (anyone at that fashion show), and get back to creating the clothes we all know and love.
For all you Marc Jacobs addicts, who still need your fix, check out the Marc Jacobs Handbags at eLUXURY.com. Thankfully, these bags escaped the painful fate of his Spring Collection, and remind us of the Marc we used to know and love.
