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.
With his trendsetting vision, Marc Jacobs predicts precisely what women want to wear every season. The Parsons graduate founded his namesake line in 1986 with business partner Robert Duffy, and his collections are now characterized by urban styling, impeccable detailing and flawless structure.
Marc Jacobs designed his first eponymous collection in 1986, also lending his independent, feminine, and prescient aesthetic to stints at Perry Ellis and Louis Vuitton. Marc by Marc Jacobs, a diffusion line conceived in 2001, focuses on youthful trends and colorful basics. Designers Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley, newly installed for Fall 14, bring a new energy to the line with rebellious and punk-inflected graphic references.
