“I am so appalled by the whole social media thing. I don’t get it, it doesn’t appeal to me, neither does a computer, or working on a laptop,” said new Instagram member Marc Jacobs just last month in an interview with Suzy Menkes. Yesterday, the designer launched his own personal Instagram page @themarcjacobs, celebrating his turn to the dark side with a lightly filtered image of him smiling and glancing furtively to the side.
So far, Mr. Jacobs has garnered about 36.7k followers on the social media site, a number that will most definitely rise in the coming days. Marc has clearly had a change of heart when it comes to social media, so, bring on the shirtless #wokeuplikethis selfies, Mr. Jacobs.
