“I don’t have a Facebook page,” declared the CFDA-nominated menswear
designer Thom Browne (above) with a put-upon eye-roll, “I have no
interest in people knowing my personal life.” Browne, known for his
ankle-bearing suits, may have been referring to his barely legal coed boy toy who’s 23-years his junior in the subtext of that remark, but regardlessly, it’s safe to say he enjoys his privacy.
Michael Bastian was approached with the same question, he also swore
that he’s Facebook-free, while noting in Jacobs’ defense “you also don’t have a choice at a certain point. When you become such a superstar like that-I’m nowhere near that-that’s part of the price that you pay. Either you don’t give a shit and you roll with it, or you don’t live your life.”
Liz Claiborne’s John Bartlett grimaced at the thought of a captive cyber-audience for his every personal triumph and tragedy. “When
I broke up with my lover of 12 years, it was in Page Six-it was kind of
horrifying!” he confessed. It seem’s not everyone in fashion design has
the thick skin (colored with cartoons to attract more attention and
stand out in a crowd as much as possible) that Marc Jacobs has, so
while the media can continue searching for our next blue-haired, gay
punching bag, it looks like we’re stuck with Marc-y Marc for now.
