It seems lately that Marc Jacobs is competing with Karl Lagerfeld for the title of "Most Quotable Designer"--from calling Cara Delevingne a dwarf to celebrating the luxury of wearing pajamas, we kind of hang on his every word.

Which is why we're excited about our exclusive clip of the designer talking with Vogue about the internet (something Vogue seems to be focusing its attention on quite a bit lately). Jacobs thinks the internet is "both a blessing and a curse" to the fashion industry and shares his thoughts on the rise of online shopping.

It's an outtake from Jacobs's chat with the glossy for its "Vogue Voices" series, which hit the web yesterday. In the full episode, he chats about his tats, having "bourgeois" dinners with pal Sofia Coppola, and that infamous Comme des Garcons black lace dress he wore to the Met Gala.

Jacobs explains that he chose the dress because he wanted to celebrate the "unconventional" thinking of Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, the subjects of that year's exhibition. In the dress, Jacobs and his date Rachel Feinstein, wearing one of his over the top fur hats, made quite the spectacle--which he sounds pretty proud of.
