Designer Marc Jacobs to launch a plus-size line?

Over on Twitter last night there was a big spectacle as to whether or not famed designer Marc Jabobs would actually add plus-size to his roster of collections. Here’s how it went down. Marc Jacobs President and Twitter aficionado Robert Duffy took to his favorite venue to discuss the possibility of a plus-size Marc Jacobs fashion collection. As The Cut points out, the label already makes up to a size 16, but Duffy tweeted the possibility of going bigger. Here’s some samples from his Twitter:
