Marc by Marc Jacobs

Brand Overview

Marc by Marc Jacobs

While some designers find a niche and stick to it, Marc Jacobs revels in the unexpected, sending unique, daring, always sensational designs down the runway. Influenced by French glamour and vintage silhouettes, Jacobs mixes tongue-in-cheek attitude with on-trend sophistication, resulting in playful yet cool women's wear.

Founded in New York in 1984 and majority-owned by LVMH since 1997, the eponymous brand developed by Marc Jacobs has enjoyed rapid growth in both the United States and internationally.In 1984 Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy founded Marc Jacobs International based on two very simple concepts: a love for fashion and a commitment to quality.

After years of producing the Marc Jacobs women's collection exclusively, the company has expanded in several directions with two lines of ready-to-wear for men and women -Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs- as well as bags, accessories, shoes and the Marc Jacobs fragrances. It is a source of great pride that despite extensive growth, the same concepts are the cornerstones of the company today.
