The collaboration between Marc Jacobs and South Park will benefit The Interdisciplinary Melanoma Cooperative Group at New York University. Robert Duffy, president of Marc Jacobs International, spoke to Women’s Wear Daily about exactly how much the creators of South Park were willing to give:
“They’re very, very cautious about collaborations. We’ve worked with so many artists in the past, and I’d say Trey and Matt are the most protective of their brand. They were so involved, to the point of wanting to know the texture of the T-shirt and how thick the paint is on the silk screen.”
“I really wanted to do Kenny, but [South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone] said there was absolutely no way they were going to let me use Kenny. I wanted to see what he looks like without his coat.”
