Marc Jacobs to go plus-size

Marc Jacobs CEO, Robert Duffy, has suggested via Twitter that the label is considering developing a plus-size line. Duffy, a.k.a. MarcJacobsInt, has a fondness for venting both personal matters and Marc Jacobs label information on his beloved Twitter account. Last week, Jacobs’s business partner of 26 years started the plus-size discussion, tweeting, “I don’t like the phrase ‘plus-sizes’. Any suggestions?”

The question proved a hot topic to say the least, and after many replies Duffy said, “You’re right. We gotta do larger sizes. I’m with you. As soon as I get back to NY, I’m on it! It will take me about a year. But stay with us.”

Marc Jacobs currently stocks up to a size 16, however according to New York magazine, the proposed plus-size collection could cater for women up to size 18 and over. Duffy has also started a new phenomenon of Twitter contests, giving away the label’s coveted leather bags and promising an opportunity to win tickets to the collection show.
