The 7 Things Marc Jacobs Took Away From Us

He came in like a wrecking ball.
The 7 Things Marc Jacobs Took Away From Us He came in like a wrecking ball.

As Miley Cyrus once sang, “It was awesome but we lost it.”

It’s not possible for us not to care about the sad news that broke this week that Marc Jacobs’ 14-year old diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs, will be no more. Yup, it’s official. They’ve even changed their Twitter handle, dropping the “Intl” ending and keeping it at @MarcJacobs. But TBH, we’re not that surprised seeing that Marc can get a little wishy washy—he claims that he is “appalled by the whole social media thing” only to hold a model casting for the Marc by Marc line’s Fall 2014 campaign via Instagram later on. So what now? What will become of the line? Is this the end of Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley? While all these questions remain unanswered, here’s a list of the 7 things that we’ll miss most about MBMJ.

1. THE UR-COOL GIRL

They always cast the coolest kids on the block. Here we see Andrej Pejic (before he became Andreja) in the Spring/Summer 2011 campaign.

2. ALL OF BLAIR'S OUTFITS

MBMJ was all about youth culture. Even the style icons of the boob tube were wearing it. Just look at Serena and Blair! (Didn't he clothe Marissa Cooper, too??)

3. A DEMOCRATIC TAKE ON CASTING

Its Instagram-based #CastMeMarc initiative gave everyone a fair shot at becoming a model.

4. NOT BEING TOO MADE UP

The hair and makeup looks always seemed so wearable even on normal days. Good thing he started Marc Jacobs Beauty, though. The legacy lives on...

The hair was always a cool thing to watch out for, too.

6. THE CUTEST CHUNKY SNEAKS

They’ve been giving us sneakers since, uhm, ever!

7. KATIE AND LUELLA??

Nothing compares to the magic of Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley. We’re really hoping they keep them together.
