TONGUE-GATE Controversy. Some designers avoid it like the plague, others chase it like the Holy Grail of fashion. No designer manages to divide industry opinion quite like Marc Jacobs, whose spring show became the talk of the New York season and created a public spat with the International Herald Tribune’s Suzy Menkes that is likely to go down in the history of fashion feuds—one that dramatic fashion types already are comparing to David and Goliath or, better yet, Alexis and Krystle.
The show itself was one of Jacobs’ best ever. There was the extensive Stefan Beckman set; the blaring soundtrack of Ravel’s Boléro; the reverse lineup starting with Jacobs’ bow followed by the finale and then, the looks one by one; the Charles Atlas film simultaneously projecting each model, and clothes that were all about sex, Jacobs-style. There was just one snag: a two-hour wait.
