The best news I've heard, well, today: London will be getting its very own Marc by Marc Jacobs store next year! The buzz is it will be situated on South Audley Street (so a convenient hop skip and a jump away from the Marc Jacobs boutique on Mount Street).

Meanwhile, the man himself has been featured in a 6-page spread in The New York Times T:Style magazine alongside French actress Elodie Bouchez (see above). No matter where you sit on the MJ love-o-meter, if there's one thing you can say about Mr Marc Jacobs: the man is definitely not boring. The blue hair and Spongebob Squarepants tattoo is testament to that.

For more images, see after the jump.

In the feature, Jacobs tells the mag of his respect for Elodie, gets deep on the subject of using creative license and gives us this interesting insight into his pysche: "I've never wanted to be a woman, but I think all the things that make up a girl's rituals are beautiful, and I attach a lot of romance to them. I always insist that clothes aren't sexy - women are."
