POP-UP BLONDIE: Debbie Harry is a friend of Marc Jacobs and a regular front-row vision at his shows, and the designer is returning the honors this fashion week. On Tuesday, the Marc by Marc Jacobs women’s boutique on Bleecker Street will transform into a pop-up Blondie shop to celebrate the band’s new album, “Panic of Girls.” The shop will sell all kinds of Blondie products, from the new album to Blondie fan packs and books, and special $35 Blondie T-shirts, which will benefit Riverkeeper. Blondie will make an appearance at the store early in the evening.
“I’ve had a longtime association with Marc Jacobs since the early days at CBGB, and he’s always been so supportive of the downtown scene,” Harry said. “I love and admire the fact that, while he’s so successful in the world of high fashion, he’s never forgotten his roots.”
