Marc Jacobs began as Marc Jacobs International in 1984, founded by Robert Duffy and Marc Jacobs himself. Since its beginning, the brand has been highly celebrated and continually influential. Early collections featured grungy elements and irreverent style which was soon adopted by the masses. The label has expanded again and again, now encompassing women’s ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, accessories, fragrance and cosmetics, under the ownership of LVMH.
Over the years, Marc Jacobs has remained original and rebellious, creating wearable designs with a unique edge. Classic styles are reimagined, using edgy details and statement prints to produce bold yet considered pieces. Marc Jacobs is unpredictable whilst consistently stylish and timeless.
Marc Jacobs today offers runway collections as well as a newer line, The Marc Jacobs. This line was introduced in 2019, inspired by past collections from the brand, with the aim of creating a variety of wardrobe staples to be added to each season. Revisiting collections from years before, these pieces are reinterpreted for a modern audience, and new pieces are introduced which reflect the unapologetic aesthetic of Marc Jacobs. Graphic print sweaters and flared jeans are met with floral dresses and oversized outerwear. The Marc Jacobs is perhaps most well known for their bag collections, which feature sleek shapes and bold branding. From totes to crossbody styles, these bags have been highly coveted since their launch, paired perfectly with the staples from the wider collection.
Marc Jacobs boutiques are located throughout the world, from New York to Paris to Taipei, and their designs are sold in numerous department stores. Collections from Marc Jacobs can also be found online, through the brand’s own store and through Selfridges, My Theresa and Farfetch.
