Bring back Marc's skort!

07 October 2008


Dear Marc,

Now, the last time we wrote to you, you were in New York showing your Marc Jacobs main line, and you were going through a bit of a skort phase, flashing such shapely pins that even the High Priestess of Thigh, VB, covered hers in shame. So imagine our shock when you stepped out in Paris at the Louis Vuitton S/S '09 show just a mere month later, in a very lovely (but not quite as daring) three-piece pinstriped Maitre D suit worn with stacked heels. What did designing Louis Vuitton do to you that you wanted to dress like a ringmaster? What happened to Skort Marc, eh? We're hoping you didn't get burned by that old 'oops I got my skort stuck in my pants' shame...  Or maybe now the weather's turned, it's simply too nippy to wear and you're concerned that putting on some 90 deniers would be a step Too Far?

Whatever, we at Grazia hope to see the skort again soon. It is so much sassier on you than the stacked heels and voluminous trousers. So we're starting a petition to Bring Back Marc's Skort. We're going to ask all our readers to sign below if they think it's a fashion travesty that you've taken it off. And when we get 100 names we will take it to Mr Brown and demand he makes a Marc's Skort Law so that every time you set foot in Blighty you have to put one on (after he's fixed the economy, natch). Got that? Marvellous? Now get back to designing fab stuff. Thanks.
