Ralph Lauren: “Marvin Traub has been part of my life for over45 years. His support and loyalty extended way beyond my professionallife. When I opened our store on Madison Avenue and 72nd, Marvin was myfirst customer. When he left Bloomingdale’s over 20 years ago, ourrelationship was just as strong. He and his beloved wife, Lee, havealways been our friends, sharing so much, watching each other’s childrengrow up. Marvin was not only an icon in the world of retail, but agreat supporter of the culture of this city. He was a rare person and arare friend. In a recent tribute to him, I was able to thank him for allhis years of support, belief, advice, good stories, good laughs, warmthand most of all his personal loyalty. I will miss his hand on myshoulder.”

Karl Lagerfeld:
“I’m really sad. He and his wife were the nicestcouple in the business. He was great, so cheerful, so friendly. He issomebody I will always remember.”
