Marc Jacobs Chicago Is Open, Has Good-Looking Staff & Stuff

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

A high-level Racked informant continues on the case of the Marc Jacobs Collection store which finally swung open its doors in Chicago, a city that's been subsisting solely on the existence of a Marc by Marc Jacobs shop since 2007. To celebrate the occasion, they tweeted that the first 100 customers to stop in and say the magic words would walk away with a free Marc Jacobs limited-edition Chicago backpack (check them out on Twitter for those words, although we bet the 100 will be taken by this evening).

We bolted to the store immediately and found not only some very hot staff dressed in their MJ best, but also the giveaway: a black, duffle-like sack that retails for $69. If you miss the giveaway, you can still buy it?but we suggest you put that $69 towards an actual piece of Marc Jacobs Collection instead of just a gimmick souvenir.
